Boats & Waterborne Craft / New to me Chaparral 1800 SCL
« on: August 13, 2018, 12:28:02 PM »
Finally decided to get a real boat. Was not going to drop $25k on a new boat so I started looking on CL via "searchtempest". Wanted something in the 18-20ft area with an open bow for fishing and the extra room. Wanted a V6 but V8 would do, the 3ltr 4cyl was underpowered by all reports. I wanted something clean looking and NO PROJECTS! I found a list of 8 or so in the 2k-8k area, 8k was pushing it. Went by a couple local boat stores and went real shopping on Sat.

This 1993 Chaparral 1800 SCL had all I was looking for. Price was a little more than NADA but for the hours (just 116) and all the little extras I paid $4300. Came with about every little thing you need, plus ski ropes and ski's. Anchor, paddles, PFD, cover and a full tank of fuel. It has a few little dings and scratches, but it is 25 years old. Picked it up from guy who got a bigger boat in Stockton. Pulled it down to Bass Pro shop in Manteca, then home. Pulls great, can hardly feel it. No brakes but it weighs just 2500 with trailer and my 6in drop hitch was perfect for it.

It runs smooth as silk and will get my trail tomorrow at Berryessa. Have to rewire the trailer today, but that is the worst of it. Wife and daughter are busy, so it will be the boys and I with a a friend of theirs. Berryessa is a large lake between Napa and where I live and has great fishing (crappie, bass, trout, cats, salmon and trout) with lots of open water for a new pull toy.
 




The kids and I love getting out but haven't used the TH in years now. I keep pushing it but they do not like the work before and after its use, so it will go.

With 2 lakes less than an hour from here, several more another hour out.

Nice looking cabinets, like the natural sealed finish.

I might on a nice day get the boat in the bay, delta is not bad though but you have to watch the tides. For now just fresh water.

Here is a link for a kit for the tranny. Little pricey but you can do it on your own too.

Glad you are getting better Dave. That is never fun but we all have gone through it.

Nice score Ken, more toys are always better.

Ryan, I have been lucky on that. Mine have always been near home before a trip. Last few have been free via costco warranty.

Speaking of toys, this followed me home today. I have decided to sell both the XR600 and the TH. We just don't use the TH and the honda needs lots of work still. Then the 1500 sub goes and I may have a buyer.

This is an 1993 Chapparal with a 4.3 V6 with a looks to be a carter carb. 18ft open bow in great shape. Advertised as a 91 for $4800, I paid 4300. Hopefully try it out on tuesday since school starts thrursday.

It is burning everywhere in this state. this is over the hill from my house, out now thank god.

At least there is not blood mixed in there. Solid machine it appears.

Looks great Don, keep it up. Maybe a nice platform of that rock around the lip of the pond might toughen it up some?

You break things pretty consistent, have that going for you.

I have noticed that naps come very easy these days.

Did that a few times, works well.

I particularly liked how they left 2 M4s unattended, propped against the garage door....

My thoughts too, plus parked right in front?

Had to be training, but nice door stop! Just hit the 3 hinges and your in.

Don't get me wrong a manual would be great. Would like on in the sub too.

Only start stopping would really slow you down if hurt. Not real hard to shift on rpm, sure you could handle it.

13
And now with self driving cars being touted about, they would have to be auto.

But with cars now being push button start, shift and even the parking brake, you could be safe for a long time.

14
Love to see it going again. I think going with the manual would be a great idea, from the beginning.

Now that the auto is in there, just get it going. Between linkages and drive shafts you would have a new buildup.

Wen't camping, fishing, shooting with the kids. They mostly played on kayaks and caught water snakes.

We shot the ruger 22/45, henry lever 22 youth and mossberg 500 a little. I shot a whirly toy out of the air and they loved it.

Can't tell what the Lathe is. I have always wanted a nice Clausing, but then I can't complain about Emco at all.

Congrads on the grandkid. Wait til he walks!

We have those windmills all over here, hate em and if the gov was financing they wouldn't go up at all. They just don't produce enough.

Loaded up the 1011 with 4 kayaks for a little fishing at Ice House, and shooting, archery,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Just took the boys to indoor racing, my 2 on the left. Boy on right is another scout but his dad just canceled camping for a hernia, so I'll take him anyway. Daughter is tagging along

2nd floor at work?

Got the toilet plumbed on the upstairs bathroom. A little tight and above a cabinet over a sink.

A nice 1/2 sheet of lexan would not break. Scratch yes, but not break.

Now to tease Don a little about pics. Same story when he flipped the little motorcycle, no pics. Kinda sounds like H emails that are missing, russians have some I bet!

I think getting into the container is the trick. When I got mine we laid it down for the ride home. Getting it out and upright was the work and I painted the bottom which was done at the factory.

Once upright in the garage it was easy on 2 dolly's, left it on the pallet!

Deep pockets. I sat through so many cases that crazy things came out of.

One where a lady lost an eye in an explosive factory, not following the rules. It was deemed the company's fault via lack of training since jobs were so scarce she had to work there. They were going to pop her eye out in the courtroom, but I addressed that without affecting the case.

All wen't to appeal anyway as they broke the set rules all the time in front of the jury.

I was a truck mech for a couple years and ran with them a little in the 80's. I could drive anything when I was 18. Kept it all up for work until I retired, just to much to keep them as a civi.

Breaking the rules was the game. Drugs, booze, overweight and running fast. Lots of good ones out there too. The rules make it tough now.

It will vary state to state also. But as Sean said, personal vs commercial towing is looked at diff in many states. POV with a company trailer on the clock would be commercial.

GVW is truck and trailer with the proper hitch and tires. I do not think the stock hitch/bumper on our trucks will handle what the truck can pull.
