    @robert843, did you put sealant in the holes?

    I filled the holes with 5200 before installing the screws on my trim tabs. I feel terrible for anyone that ever tries to remove them.

    On the plus side, four years later, they have never leaked.

    I used 4200 just in case I ever bent a tab I could replace them. I put it in the holes and behind the head of the screw to create a seal.

    For any first timers, go to the 2:45 mark and you'll get to see what waters you and your kids will be snorkeling in. Fun times...


    And don't forget to bring your drone

    @Andy S I have updated my profile to be a Chaparral 270 Signature. Please change it in the first page of list of registered boaters. It has my old boat AR240. Thanks.

    Need to start working on it and get it Bimini ready (new gps, vhf, underwater lights, audio). It is lying in storage now.

    Lol @robert843
    My friend is actively looking for a 35 footer. So it will either be the 270 or the 35 footer we will end up coming to Bimini.

    That would drive me nuts. But at least you are on the coast, so your water access is not limiting you.
    Beautiful boat!
