2000 Rinker 180 Bowrider Questions *Newbie*
***First time boat owner***
I am a new/proud owner of a used 2000 Rinker 180 Bowrider and have a few questions.
1. Need a new prop as owner kept the old one. What type of prop did the boat come with and what would you recommend for overall performance? I plan to do some tubing, waterskiing and cruising with the boat.
2. I know the boat has a Mercury Mercruiser 3.0L, with Mercury Alpha One outdrive, but is there a standard equipment list or standard build list for the boat? I do not have any of the owners manuals or docs.
3. Where could i get replacement parts for the boat? i.e. new dash switches, gauges, lights, etc… I plan to restore and update some of the worn parts over the winter.
4. What should I do to winterize the boat? I keep the boat in my garage but would like to winterize it.
Many thanks for replies : )
