    Take some time and read a couple of the STICKYS located at the top of the Introductions Forum regarding the benefits of becoming a 'contributing' member and regarding 'manuals'.

    Been to St Williams a number of times and used to have a cottage at Long Point so I'm very familiar with the area.

    It's been a while since I got on line and noticed your post. We have a 2000 Z308 and absolutely love the boat. We've made a few mods for our style of boating. I've done about anything you can do to our "Good Chi" so ifyou have any questions, fire away and I'll try to answer.

    Yes, twins were only offered on the Z308's, (twin 4.3's, twin 5.0L, twin 5.7L's, or D-tronic diesels (volvo options also available). According to the build sheets I have, only 24 of them were ever built, and only one was with a single engine.

    Good luck with it, and you'll have to keep us posted with the cleaning process and post some pics when she's all spiffed up! I know I'm jealous


    Wait, are you serious? Are you saying only one Z308 was made with a single engine?

    Thank you..We absolute love our Z308. The only thing we weren't in love with was the swim platform. That is all about to change though. We've ordered a new one and are having it installed in the spring. I will post pics when she's done

    As I wrote early on, I think I've done about every MOD on our "Good Chi" that I can think of. Here's a couple pics of the extended deck we had made for her. We love it!! as you can see we incorporated a new locker for the ladder and used the old one to store a washdown hose and BBQ stand. The two retractable cleats are really used for grab handles as you come up the ladder. Otherwise there is nothing to hold on to. Under the deck, I installed lights that illuminate the water and make it easy to play in the water if you are so inclined. Unfortunately, I had filled the gas tank to full when it went into dry storage from one of our outings. The gas expanded and some leaked on the deck and made the stain that I have yet to figure out how to remove. Bottom line though is that I'm not sure we could live without the extended deck. It is so much fun and practical too.

    I'm trying to send some pics of our extended deck, but having some trouble. I have contacted the administrator to see why I'm getting and error message I'm getting. You can contact me at [email protected] if you would like me to send you pictures direct.

    If i remember right from my Mod days here, this site had a size limit on pics so you may be exceeding that limit. The software here is old and needs to be updated. Good luck getting Admin to respond.....
