|Just picked up a 2007 Sanger V215 from a dealer out of state that has gone out of business. My question is this being my first V drive what do I need to look out for from it sitting for 2 years? It has 0 hours on it and original oil and so on.|
|I would change the oil and if there was any gas in the tank have it removed. |
Congrats on the new boat! You will love it!
|Thanks! That is what I has in mind. The dip stick has a hint of rust toward the top of it but thats it.|
|I would also change the tranny fluid, V-drive oil, and fuel filter. Charge that battery and you should be good to go! |
|Change the impeller too... I purchased a boat that sat for 2 years last year, and the impeller pulled out in pieces.. |
|^^^ good call Ken! |
A dried up impeller is no bueno
|Thanks for all the help guys! I want to get all the kinks worked out before that time of year gets here!|
|Go ahead and buy two impellers while you are at it. I always like to have an extra one around. If one goes out and that is all you have it could ruin the weekend.|
|^^I second that...along with a spare prop+puller IN THE BOAT. |
|yikes pete that must have been one bad day. |
Mike lets see a pic!!!!!!!!!
|The engine with zero hours is a good thing. It's not broken in, so the cylinders are a bit rougher than they will be. Any surface rust will vanish quickly. Change the oil before you start it and change it again at 10+ hours instead of 20. You're going to love it.|
|Wow.. sounds like a basket case to me, I would have ran the other way... espically since its a Sanger.. Should have atleast gotten a V230|
|Lots of love Rich...LOL|
|O yeah.. Its against the rules to talk about your new boat and not post some pictures! |
Lets see this bad boy!
