new boat

Postby ls199transam » Tue May 13, 2014 10:25 am

I just bought a 2004 212 with an efi 5.0. Is there any tricks that I need to know about these boats? And where is the best play to buy parts replacement or aftermarket? I will try to post pics soon. Im new to the forum.

Basically the same boat I had, mine was an '05. Tips: drive her fast & turn her hard. Nothing to look out for really, other than the typical boat related issues. No worries about rot, other than seat cushions & covers.
Boatless, again.

Welcome. I recommend purchasing a service manual for your motor (Seloc makes good manuals) regular maintenance, and most of all Just Enjoy Her!!!

Change the impeller, or at least pull it out and check it. (but if dissassembled, might as well change it)
