  1. Hard Water Spots

    Boat Babes smells the best but Speed Gloss works the best imo
  2. It's probably not the switch itself but the valve is stuck. Try and manually open it with the red allen key and see if the switch lights up when sensor sees it's open. Most likely a valve issue which is common.
  3. I installed a docking light specific "horizontal" rocker switch for the front docking lights. At the same time I cut in another for the rear tower facing LEDs. I put them both in in the helm armrest panel so they look factory
  4. Ski pole

    One of my biggest gripes with my 15 S226 is not having ski pylon. I think every boat should have it. That being said we ski and tube from transom handle tow point and ski from tower most of the time as it helps with deep water starts. Never tow tube from tower thought
  5. Fi23 vs GS22?

    So how would the Fi23 and Vi22 Compare? I was potentially considering the GS22 as I miss the slalom wake of my old direct drive and want a boat that will do both Slalom and Surf "decently". My S226 is a surfing beast but slalom is less than desireable. I know that the 2 sports are on opposite ends of the spectrum but don't want to get back into a ski only boat with terrible surf wave. There has to be a decent compromise out there. Will be travelling at some point to demo once I narrow down the short list because any dealers are a long way away from where I live Thanks
  6. Your issue actually sounds extremely simple and a $30 useable/wearable part as the likely cause/issue/ and solution in both cases. I replace my impeller every year whether I need it or not. Not that these boats don't have issues across all brands but these forums can be your friend as there is a wealth of information on them and doing some of your own maintenance can be a godsend if you don't have a great dealer in your area.
  7. Worxman - did you end up purchasing the SewLong bimini? If you did and don't mine would you pm me the price and what you think of it after getting some use? My OEM has a rip on a seam and considering doing something other than the factory bimini. Thanks
  8. Wall storage for your gear!

    Thanks. Boat's usually in that bay so actually right off the back easy peasy
  9. OEM are Fly High but you can go bigger. I upgraded to the bagbuster kit from NWBS. It's a bigger rear locker bag with the connected under midship seat bag. Contact them to find out the specs on added weight of the rear and midship bags as I cannot remember how much more than stock they are? I'm pretty certain the stock bags full you could still have a little gear (life jackets and such) on top and with my new bigger bag I make sure there isn't anything in there cuz when full there is no room.
  10. it's a PIA but yes mine will still do it if I cycle the key at start too quick. I think its an oil pressure sensor so similar. Mine runs fine since new, vitals all perfect, usually happens if I'm Not driving and wife tries to start too soon (no patience)
  11. Wall storage for your gear!

    Thread revival from the DEAD! I finally got my Krypt board rack put up after about 4 years. Bought them on clearance years back and I've always had DIY pvc racks for years. Wanted something a little more streamlined for the new shop (which isn't new now after 4 years ) Anyway here it is!!
  12. Finally did mine but went with the Angled Starboard and Port side specific LED's.
  13. Viking's S226

    Haven't been on here in awhile and/or updated my Thread. Seems like I'm always doing something to the boat and run out of time to post Anyway I just finished up installing some RubRail Docking lights and VisionX rear facing tower lights. For the tower lights I used the existing lower speaker locations and tower wiring and grabbed a set of adapters. The hardest part of the install was cutting out the rocker switches. The rubrail docking lights were a bit harder since I had to build up the nerve to take a cutting wheel to my boat and measure a million times to ensure I was able to re-use the existing rub rail screws to install the coverplate over the light housing. It actually wasn't too bad. I located the rocker switches in the right armrest cover plate at the top and bottom edges. It looks like it came like that from the factory which is the look I was going for. Now it's time to go use her for the season again ......whoot whoot!!!
