  1. Trailer Setup Advice

  2. Trailer Setup Advice

    Awesome guys, Thats what I thought. Ill give it a go. To be honest the boat floats all the way to the winch so I figured I was too deep
  3. Trailer Setup Advice

    Hey Guys, So I have new trailer that was setup by the dealer but I noticed (depending on how steep the ramp is) that I have to lift up on the bow to get it to go up and over the roller by the winch. Then the roller guides it up from the rub rail to the hook. Does that seem right or am I just pulling in too deep on the ramp? I have a continental trailer with the forward bunks. The one thing I noticed is the front roller for the keel does not make contact at any point. Is that because the forward bunks or does it still need to make contact and thats why I am having to lift it? Photos:

  5. Speakers installation in 2200 TE

    I would assume the gunnels are a no no with the 8.8s. Maybe 7.7's? Anyone know the depth available?

  7. Sea star 5358 support rod removal

    Ok I got it in and done and like I said took pics to do a walk through. When at center I have about 1/8-1/4" play total (half that to a single side) when I push on the motor side to side but it appears there's no more air coming from bleeders or helm. Is that in spec? When at lock it's solid and won't budge

    Awesome! So the zerks don't actually do anything? seastar said if the zerks are there I will definitely have to remove the original support bar so I figured it did something.

    Ok sounds good the rod in there just looks like it would be too long to come out when I eyeballed it. i assume any marine grease works? Where does the ground strap connect?
  14. Sea star 5358 support rod removal

    Hey guys, I tried this on another thread but In case someone missed it I wanted to start my own. so I need to replace my seastar cylinder on my 03 2200 and there is a new version that may require me to remove the old support rod. The motor is as low as it will go so the tolerances are tight - does anyone know if you can get the rod all the way out without dismounting the motor? i stole this photo from the other thread to show what I am talking about. To the original owner of this photo: sorry I stole this but it's pouring outside and I am hoping to start this project tomorrow.
  15. Pathfinder.. Which SeaStar Cylinder? SeaStar is So Confusing!!

    No it's a full replacement. The steering rod is pitted.
