    That's where the cooler goes. Ours is an Igloo Marine - not sure of the size. The block toward the front keep it from sliding.

    Yes that is to hold the table poles under the cooier. The strap is hold the walkthrough windshield in place when open.

    My boat is on a lift and I am having the problem when I don't have a cover on the boat. You may be correct that the angle of the boat on the lift may not be sufficient but that is a major operation to change. I'll have to do some more sleuthing to see if I can figure this out.

    Thanks all

    Depends on the lift. Mine is on a HydroHoist, I just had to pull the two bolts for the front of the bunks and raise them a hole. Took all of 5 minutes to do. My boat was a little low in the bow and water would not drain all the way from the front ski locker.

    Hello Ike, last weekend I noticed the drain at the bottom of the cup holder in the back of my 2005 had some debris stuck in it (courtesy of grandkids):

    After cleaning it I poured in some water to flush it, and discovered it does not have a drain hose attached. It was dribbling right next to one of my batteries - could this be part of your issue?

    I'm going to add a hose down to the bilge, just to be safe.

    Both water pumps and manifolds done, may indicate it had a major overheat and hurt the engine. Definitely do a compression test and see if the boat runs up to WOT rpm spec.

    I am on the fence with this popyacht place. The 350MAG with the Bravo 3 outdrive is the perfect combination for that Boat. Yours is smaller. I would go 350MAG. 300 hours is very low for a 15 year old Boat. So I would have a engine survey done and have them look at everything not just compression.
    When you find a good one there is no better bow rider out there hands down. Good luck

    Thanks for your information as it will be my first boat such kind of thing is important for me to know.

    Thanks all you wrote is new for me, as Im living in Europe (Georgia, Tbilisi) for me its a little difficult to check boat conditions, I will ask agents I think PopYachts will have this kind of service.

    One more question regarding salty water Im going to use boat mostly in salty water Black Sea salty rate 17-18% is better to find fresh water cooled boat? Its very seldom such kind of boats most of them what I found on raw water cooled system.

    The specs and the price on that boat are fine. Salt water boats sell for one half of what a fresh water boat does. That would sell for $28K in Colorado.
