Default 2500 SCR

Hello Chris,

Did you buy your 2500 SCR, l am looking through the forum and see you may have the same boat l have just bought it, l get home on August 16th to see it for the first time, the boat has been delivered and is waiting for me arriving home, my wife says it is like a house and beautiful, so l am sure l am on a winner, it is the 5 litre EFI modal as well, built in 2001.

Do you have ant tips? I am planning on launching it on the weekends form it's trailer in Loch Lomond, scotland, the s;lip is purpose built for bigger boats, is it easy enought to launch and recover?

Cheers,

Gary

guys..when launching your boat from a trailer...make sure that you go thru the check list ...butt plug in....drive up so it doesn't drag...fenders out...dock lines ready..the hold down straps off.........etc....don't waste time trying to do all that when your at the ramp....then quickly tie it off at the dock and drive your trailer up and park it ....then get underway and away from the ramp as quickly as possible so as not to tie up the dock space.....be polite about it.....

the 2500 is what we call a pocket cruiser....not like the little lake boats for skiing....they have a problem in the wind as the top likes to become the sail and twist the boat....be careful when docking.....

enjoy the new boat....

SP

The check list is a good idea. I usually run the engine on the muffs prior to launch just so everythings warm, not nice to have the engine stall reversing off the trailer.....
I would imagine for your boat a substancial tow car would be good due to the weight involved.
On another note I am trailering my boat to Lomond in september for the first time, just sent the docs off for registration any unforseen hazzards that I should be aware of? other than the weather!
