  1. Last week
  2. Mine had a circuit breaker for the bilge pumps at the Main battery switch panel.
  3. My boat has the upgraded premium JL Audio sound sustem, but I don't have any information as to where the amp is located or what model it is. Looking to add a few more speakers, but need to know if I need to upgrade the amp as well. Any help would be much appreciated!

    Cushions

    I have a cushion to place over the walkway to the swim platform but is there a cushion to use for the back to make a solid bench?
  6. There are two bilge pumps in cabin floor with shower sump. Cant get them to come on even if i turn float manually. Seems that both not working it is a power issue. Nothing on DC panel for them. Any ideas where to look for their power supply ? also the sump pump does come on if i run water in it.
  7. I am an owner of a Monterey 270 cruiser, and my stern pullup cleat is broken. Any advice on possible suppliers for the part? Cheers, John
  8. I turned on my batteries to raise the engine hatch and everything came on fine but the engine hatch will not open. I can start the engines fine and everything works but the hatch will not open. I do not see any other access into the engine compartment. I have a 2012 328SS. Any help would be appreciated.
  9. The Hummingbird Depth finder doesn't work; I'm wondering if anyone has the schematics for it.
  10. Any Tips how / where advertise for selling Monterey 233 Explorer? Also what are main details people looking for a used boat want to know? Love the boat since bot it 2005 but getting older and its time for another family to enjoy it. Thanks.
  11. Allow me to attempt to provide an answer to your question. I think the second part of your question is easier to answer than the first part, speed, unless there is someone with the exact same boat and setup. The speed probably varies based on the propeller size/type, hull shape, weight etc. Using the stats provided by Mercury Marine https://www.mercurymarine.com/en/us/engines/inboard-and-sterndrive/mercruiser/82l/, this engine produces 430 HP, 4600 - 5000 Maximum RPM @WOT. Not sure if the engine is a Mercury Marine or Volvo Penta but it is a Chevy 502 so the brands are probably similar in HP and RPM. I would say that what you reported seems to be accurate with these stats.
  12. Greetings, Trying to understand/troubleshoot the windlass operation on a 2004 Monterey 302 that I have been working on for the last couple of years. The windlass is the original Simpson Lawrence, not sure if it's a 600 or 700 since I can't see the label on the windlass. On another note, I was able to get the bow thruster working so hoping that this problem is easy to resolve. I disconnected the windlass motor from the terminals in the anchor locker and connected directly to a 12V battery and it worked. Reversed the polarity back in forth caused the anchor to go up and down. I found the circuit breaker which is installed on the battery panel, for clarification, this is the panel that controls the battery voltage for the port/starboard motors and the generator. The circuit breaker switch is okay. One other thing I'm going to do is ohm out the wire from the circuit breaker so I can make sure power is going to the terminals in the anchor locker. There is one cut wire. If you've ever worked on a boat that someone else owned, you realized that people do some stupid things to save money not to fix something. Will also attempt to find the ground since the wires are packaged up . Here's my question: Where is the solenoid reversing switch? There should be one somewhere since there are foot switches as well as a 3 position toggle switch at the helm. I read a previous post where the individual said there wasn't one on the 298. My understanding is this is required like the bow thruster to reverse the direction. I suspect it's somewhere in the helm but before I start taking things apart I wanted ask someone. Thanks in advance for you help.
  13. Hi folks, Just purchased a 2023 monterey M-205. Want to get it into the garage for the winter. It has the wake tower and even folded forward its too tall. Does anyone know how hard it would be to take it off?
  14. Hello, I have a 2004 explorer 233. It looks just like yours and has a clean bottom and I got it up to 43 miles an hour at TopSpeed with a 5.0 MerCruiser and the alpha three out drive. I really like your double canopy set up. Did you do that yourself? Where did you get them by chance?
  15. Did you ever find this part? I need them also. Thanks
  16. I have a 295SY, does anyone know what the material is under the horn cover starboard side. Can water enter the boat if the cover is compromised.
  17. Based out of Lake Cumberland, new to the forums
  18. Anyone know where to find a replacement 2015 Monterey 360 SC Windshield motor for the vent?
  19. So I found a suitable solution. Screw In Plunger Latch with Stainless Steel Cover | Boat Outfitters It is not a 100% direct fit as the hole diameter in the boat is a 1/16" to small but just a few minutes with a Dremel and sanding wheel enlarged the hole for a great fit. Get the 22 lb hold version as it matches the OEM screw hole pattern.
  20. My 1998 262 CR cockpit cover has one main cover but it also came with three matching canvas strips, about 2 to 2.5 feet long, 2-3 inches wide with snaps on the leading and trailing edges. I can only guess that these are extensions of some kind? Does anyone know what they are for and where they go when the cockpit cover is put up?
  21. I have a 2021 295 Sport Yacht 8.2 single engine.Best speed I can get is 35mph, tach will not go past 4500RPM. Does this sound normal?
  22. Has anyone had any luck finding replacement rubber seat "pucks"? Ours have softened and I can not get Monterey to reply to e-mails. I did find an old thread on I.boats that referenced an Eberhard Part #776. Found those but they do not have the flange that extends past the main body to seat on the edge of the hole in the fiberglass under the seats.
  23. Hello, The Tach based information system for our boat seems to be fairly accurate in comparison with the analog gauges except for the water temp. I am pretty sure the water temp in the lake is not 179 degrees Fahrenheit. I mean we are in the south but that is a bit much. Anyone have insight? Thanks in advance.
  24. Hello, Did you ever come up with the solution? We just bought a 2013 288SS and some of the rivited snaps are loose. I was hoping someone had done this and could advise.
  25. Finally found the solution. There is an access panel under the helm, not the breaker panel but a carpeted access panel that all the dash connections are run too. Every ground connection was loose, once tightened then everything works fine. The dealer and Monterey were no help. If you have electric problem this is the area I would look to first, you need to remove everything from under the helm and crawl in to find the panel. Simple fix but a little Loctite Threadlocker on the screws would have prevented this.
