You must use a solvent. They insisted that you cannot reattach the plastic housing of the arm to the acrylic cover (the arm assembly is black plastic and the hatch is acrylic) and they tried to sell me a new hatch assembly unit for about $130. After doing some research, I found a $3 tube of "SureHold Plastic Surgery" adhesive that works on both Acrylic and other plastics. You can pick it up at Walgreens. It has now been about 4 weeks since the repair, and all seems to be OK! Hope it lasts.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->


    UPDATE- After another 2 months the "Plastic Surgery" product is still holding fine!!!

    I have the same problem with one of my hatch arms on my 2001 262 CR. As soon as the weather breaks I will give your solution a try.

  2. I have a 262 CR with a similar issue. The unit will cool the cabin for serveral hours and then it will shutdown with a "HPS" fault. We too have checked everything. I think we might have a bad "High Pressure Cut-out" switch. I plan on replacing it in 2010 and will let you know it that works.

  3. Raybob, get used to the rolling. Ours rolls with just 2 aboard. Our cruisers have a high a profile, 8'6" beam and with all that canvas, it's like having a sail in the wind. With time and experience, you'll learn to control much of the rolling with the trim tabs. If you find you just hate the rolling, upgrade to a bigger boat with a much wider beam. <img src="http://montereyboats.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />

    I have been told that this size boat has a "tender" hull. I have been working wiyh it for a while and like you said, it's going to roll some. One thing that I found has helped is if I first trim the outdrive to level things out and then treak the trim tabs it works better.

  4. RayBob, I have a 2000 262CR with the 5.7L B3 combo and tabs. She'll hit 40 when properly trimmed. As the admin said, take your time and make small adjustments. Note the water and wind conditions and also, how you're loaded. But with that big a** 7.4L, you shouldn't have any lack of power issues.

    Midwest, You are right about the power. We really didn't get a lot of use before we put it up for the winter. Driving with just the top up wasn't to bad, but with the full canvas on it and 6 people, it seemed to want to roll from one side to the other. We will soon be back out on it and will let you know if it gets any better. Thanks.

  5. What is the engine/outdrive/prop on the 262 Cruiser you are looking at?


    It has 7.4 liter Mercruiser, with the Bravo 3 outdrive with stainless steel duo-props.


    This boat runs really fast, ~40 MPH but I seem to have some trim tab control issues at high speed.
