    Agreed. Should pull down and wires will follow.

    That is definitely the way to remove the light fixtures. I remover mine tonight and replaced all of my bulbs with LEDs. They look great, give more light, less heat and a lot less power. Just be carefull with your fingers as the lights have little springs almost like a mouse trap that will get your fingers. I really had to work hard to get them out. Finally used a flat head screwdriver around the lip and pulled it down.

    Okay, so I replaced my cabin lights and am thinking of replacing the arch lights next but I can't figure out how to remove the metal rings around the lights. Can anyone give me some info on the removal please? Also, does anyone know where you can purchase replacement rings? One of mine is missing. Thanks!

    I tried spinning them. They must be a pretty tight fit. I will give it another try. Does anyone know the type of bulb used? I want to replace them with an led blue/white bulb.

    Re: OFFICIAL 350/370 SD Site (2008 or newer)

    Can those of you with the Bravo 3 drives and Axius do me a favor and tell me what pitch your props are? Ours are 26 (not sure of the diameter), and our max rpm is about 4300 WOT. Boattest.com's review listed 22.75P props, and their testing got to 4800 rpm at WOT. Our efficiency SUCKS (0.7mpg on a good day) and I think that we are over propped.
    Thanks in advance!

    I can't help you with the props but I just had an issue that the Joy stick for the axius drives just failed and had to be replaced. Anyone else have this issue. My boat only has 82 hours on it.:huh:

    Hi all! I am hoping someone can answer this for me as I am trying to figure out this new (to me) boat. I have a flat panel tv in the mid birth that is built in. I am trying to get to the back of it to plug in an hdmi cable but can't figure out how to gain access. Can anyone give me a clue on this one? Thanks for the help!

    there are screws that hold the "framing" around the tv. You have to pop off the caps on them (the screwed) to access (Philips heads). There are screws as you come down the stairs and some underneath. Get them all out and it will pop off. Takes a bit of wiggling, would will want some glue of some type to up the screw caps back on when done. The are suppose to fit in the hex of the Philips head but I find a drop of glue helps make sure they stick and not too much as you might need to remove down the road at some point.

    Does anyone know where our stereo amps are located? I'm betting in the aft cabin area but not 100% sure.
    Also does anyone know the OEM speaker specs? ( cabin spkr wattage and ohms specifically, but knowing cockpit ones would be nice too)
    thank you

    on my 310 - it is behind the starboard cushion in the aft cabin. There is a "cabinet" behind it so I can pull out at the top and you open up to where the amps are.

    I am finally ready to move up from a 280DA to a 350DA. I really need some help here guys!
    I am looking at 2010 models. Wow, I cannot believe the engine options with this model. everyone selling has a different option! I am interested in one with 377 mag, B3s. I have not any 350 DA at this time. They are all far from me.
    Is the 377 enough power for this size boat??? Pros / cons with 377s vs 496???
    Any other info would be great!!! I definitely want the Axius.

    Thanks,
    T

    Yep, behind the starboard sofa back support cushion. I replace amp and speakers. Recommend car amp as they are much more powerful and less expensive. Speakers in the cabin, just pull one out and again, upgrade to the new amps power output. In the cockpit and swim platform I used JBL marine grade. Searay does not put the best speakers in, so definitely upgrade to something good.

    Cheers

    6.2's are fine, just a bit less HP. I have the 8.1's and it is quite powerful, but expensive to operate. But also I have the larger 2008 350 (now called the 370) which weighs @3000 pounds more than the 350 your looking at. Both are great boats and a lot of fun.
    I cruise at 3500 RPM and average 30 gallons per hour.
    My next boat will absolutely be diesel, but that's hard to find in anything less than a 40 ft boat.

    I found the large Clarion amp in that "hidden" area behind the cushion... there is 1 RCA pair connecting to a "Y" going into the back (to simulate 4 channels) and 12 speaker wires coming out.... but I unhooked the RCA's and the "Cabin" speakers were still playing,,, so I'm thinking there is another location with the Cabin amp (maybe in the cabinet area with the head unit). I got a Planet Audio 4ch 1600 watt amp to put beside the Clarion amp and will run the transom speakers and maybe the cockpit ones from it also. Then I will hook the cabin speakers up to the existing Clarion amp. The Clarion amp doesn't match the wiring schematic from SeaRay.. as it shows a 50W amp for Cabin, 50W amp for Transom and 400W for cockpit... I can't find a "wattage" on the Clarion amp anywhere, but I'm assuming it's 400W. Does anyone know? my new speakers for the transom are Infinity marine speakers

    I Wouldn't worry about it, the more power the better. Also Infinity marine speakers don't get as loud as other speakers, so you need the extra amp power to wake them up.
