    Wanted to start a 350 SLX thread. I am on my third 350SLX and have just moved to Outboards and wanted to share my knowledge on the 350 SLX's as well as have a forum for others to share. Add yourself to the thread and share your pics. Here are my 2014,2016 and 2018 350's.

    That is one beautiful boat(s). And you must really, really hate money to cycle through them that quickly! :):)

    When did day boats become so dam expensive?

    We are purchasing a 2017 350 SLX OB. This may sound like a silly question but how do I tow tubes and the like with it? Do I use a bridle attached to the rear cleats or tow from the canopy or what.

    Thanks in advance,

    Howard

    I would think you would use a bridle long enough to clear your OB's.

    Congratulations and welcome to CSR!

    Yep. Weird setup. Restaurant docks had been destroyed. In order to stop in and eat, we had to tie bow line to docks and anchor in back. Fendor was for the boat that was beside me.

    Got it! Just a weird pet peeve of mine with fenders on boat pics. That said if that was my boat and there was a boat next to me, I’d have 20 of those suckers hanging off the side. Can’t wait to hear more about your boat and of course, lots and lots of pictures!

    We have a 2015 SLX 350. Has been a learning experience, and have some issues keeping all the systems working. At the moment, our head is not producing any vacuum. Anyone been through this? Have verified all the plumbing is open between head and holding tank. Can you help me locate the vacuum pump?
