I have the same single-axle trailer with the 5200 pound axle - but my boat probably weighs 1000 pounds more than yours (well, even more when we're towing to Lake Powell for a week).

I have the '98 version of this boat. I really enjoy getting in my buddies' '93 PS190 - it's like driving a sports car - but this is definitely the better boat for a family. There's enough hidden...

I agree with curver that the fit needs to be tight - if you didn't have difficulty getting the coupler off, it was probably too loose.

That said, IMHO the more critical item than the grooves is...

And grease the rudder box.
Note that there is a weep hole from the rudder box, under the boat. When you grease it, you should grease until it comes out the weep hole. On mine, the weep hole was...

Normally, the toggle switch for the rear deck lift is just aft of the throttle assembly, near your right elbow. If the switch is gone, that's your likely culprit. One thing confuses me though - I...

Do you still have the electric rear deck lid? If not, that might be a connector for the deck motor. It's been a long time since I've had mine apart up there, so I'm not sure.

Well, if you're concerned, the best thing to do is to first align the engine to the strut. Note that the strut is the center of the universe - it's the one fixed thing in the drive system. The idea...
