  1. Well after much online research boats, RVs, etc., still no answer to the manufacturer of the icebox. So I have taken it out and placed 2 Rubbermaid small plastic containers with the see-thru side door inside the cavity. Holds most of my Plano tackle boxes until I come up with a better solution. Probably going to build a Sunbrella roll up cover until I make something permanent. Another board member fabricated a door and is also using the space for storage.

  2. Greetings,


    I'm planning to install an anchor windlass in the bow of my 2000 262 CR. Has anyone done this? Is there sufficient room in the forward anchor locker for the below deck parts plus enough fall for the rode?


    Or is there anyone who has a 262 with a windlass who can give me some tips on the best way to do this?



    I installed a Lewmar 700 a few years back. Plenty of room for the install. I have 150' rode with 25' of chain. I gained access to the anchor locker through the mirror by fabricating a hinge set up. The boat is pre-wired for the windlass; the cable runs along the hull to deck seam on the starboard side to to dash.

  3. Does anyone have the specs for the cockpit icebox for a 2000 262 cruiser. This is the one installed underneath the wetbar. The plastic frame broke and the door fell off... looks terrible now. I'd like to either replace the whole unit or convert it into a storage locker... however it depends on the price to replace and availablility.




    I converted mine to a tackle locker the day I bought the boat orignally replacing the door with marine plywood. It removes easily with 4 screws so you should be able to take exact measurements. I will be replacing the original doors hinges with fabricated aluminum hinges during the winter lay-up.

  4. Again, it depends on what props you are running and the ratio of your drive. You should be running a 1.95:1 ratio. If they are F4's or F5's with the 1.95:1 ratio and 250 SHP, then you are right were you are supposed to be. The speed range according to VP's prop catalog would be 37 to 44. The rpm specs are the same for the aluminum D props. D4's max out at 35 mph and D5's max out at 40 mph. And obviously your weight and how much you trim out the drive will impact your max rpm. Hope this helps.
