    Dealer told me.....

    Everytime my boat has been winterized, the oil has been changed. I would just request it now...btw, no spring treatment needed...

    '07 Utopia Intermittent Dash and Nav Lights

    Try popping the bow seat cushion backing in front. I watch the audio guy pop that off to access the radio on the port side. Imagine it would be the same on the other side. Hope that helps.

    Utopia Table Waterlogged

    My table did the same thing and I was thinking about discarding it and getting a replacement at the counter store. Lo and behold, after a week, it dried amd almost returned to its original shape. I have been more careful with water in that area. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Broke the Radio Cover on my New Speedster! :(

    Read a story about a Lexus battery for a key fob that was $100+ and you can get one from Panasonic for $16. Frustrating...know they want to make a buck..but at least they would kiss you first... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Deep cycle battery

    Apparently, the battery gave out after 6 years. I meticulously trickle charge it every year. Oh well! I did some research and decided on the Sears Diehard Platinum battery. It was on sale. All indication is that it is the same as the Odyssey battery except for less cost and better warranty...

    where do you tow tubes from? ski pole or wake tower?

    Not the expert but you should be able to find treads here and other forums on this subject. Consensus is that you should never pull tubes with the tower. Something about bending or breaking it as it was never designed to pull that much weight. Does that mean you can't do it? No, but you...

    Deep cycle battery

    Well it happened. Was out tubing when the battery quit. Good thing a friend had an extra battery. Made it home and have it on a charger. Going to have it checked out tomorrow. One question and request. First question, what brand or model do you recommend if I have to replace? What about...

    Noise Level -- Jet vs. Prop

    At slow throttle, much less control. You have to practice. My first launch this year was evident of that. Felt like it was the first couple of launches ever. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Noise Level -- Jet vs. Prop

    Prop is quieter when just putzing around. For comparison, listen to jet skis when they are going slow. At full throttle, both about the same. No disadvantage but a lot more mobility than a prop boat. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    How bad is the weed in your lake?

    Holy cow! Have never seen it go bad. Can't make it around the lake without diving to clear the intake. With weed clogging, can only get up to 25mph. Didn't seem to bother the jet skis... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New Owner Grocery List

    I'd keep a decent binocular. A swim mask to check under the boat or impeller. A battery jumpstart. A bottle opener. Walkies talkies are useful. A football. Beer coozies. Waterproof uno cards.

    F-'n Doctors !!!

    Congrats man! Sounds like a very healthy baby. My little girl was 6 lbs 1 oz when she was born. I had to go get premie baby clothes for her as the 0-3 months were sleeping bag on her. Gonna look for that picture of her first boat ride!! What did you name her?

    How to Sync Engines on 2009 Utopia 205SE with twin 155's?

    I find that depending on the condition, the engines do not sync perfectly all the time. That said, you can sync the engines if they are off. Read previous treads as there is plenty of info on this. You basically adjust one engine to match the other. Can't remember which.

    2006 seadoo sportster vibrating when I tried to speed up

    You can drive it but it sounds like there is either something still there or you have bad wear rings now. Drive it in. If you have it towed, you need to clamp off hoses...don't ask me which ones.

    2007 Utopia SE Intake Question..Help

    I haven't investigate the seat option. I don't like the fact that it doesn't adjust forward or backward. I am shorter than you but I still find it sitting pretty low. I usually sit on a floatation cushion and on one knee. Did you find what was in there?

    2007 Utopia SE Intake Question..Help

    Get yourselves a good flashlight first. Crawl under and look into the intake grate. The other thing to do is to put the throttle forward and look from behind. Clear out whatever is stuck there. Then take it out on the water and see if it is okay. If it doesn't, you will need new wear rings...

    How to fix moving speedster in Neutral?

    Take it to your dealer, they can adjust it. Unfortunately, it isn't a perfect fix as it is a trial and error. They will adjust it and it will either improve or the boat might actually move backward. I had it done and it is better than it was before.
