Have a 2001 bayloner throphey how much fuel it holds


Are you sure you don't have a 2001 Bayliner Trophy? ;>)

7 gallons, but they come in sizes 17 feet to 31 feet and 125HP to 225HP.

2001 Bayliner Trophy Asking Price: $13,999 OR BEST OFFER Condition: Good. Description Location: Ridgewood, New York Seller's Notes: AWESOME BOAT!! Body Style: Power Boat Length: 21 Hull: FIBERGLASS Class: FISH/SKI BOAT Engine: 2010 Hyundai 150 # Engines: one Fuel Capacity: seven gallons Horsepower: 150 VIN: Request the VIN Seller's Comments Great boat, Lots of storage, 270 hours on motor, Well maintained, Reliable, Great for the lake, Depth/Fish/GPS System, Well equipped, Live well, Pump, Anchor, Seats four, Lots of cabin room, Equipped with toilet.

Easiest way is to run it dry with a 1 gallon portable can on board. Stay close to the marina until main tank runs out, top up with the gallon can, and then go to the marina and fill it up. Whatever it takes minus 1 gallon is the capacity. Then refill that gallon can and log how many miles you do on a full tank. I carry 2 x 6 gallon tanks, I know one tank will take my 95 kilometres (I am in Canada)

Red portable fuel marine tanks hold 6 gallons. The size is marked on it. If you have a fixed tank, they are usually 20 gallons, but to be sure use my method and a fill.

My garmin 545s does not turn on


My Garmin 545s would not power up. I took the unit to West Marine, where they had the correct cable to hook it up and test it. The unit immediately powered up and I purchased a $22 cable and installed it. Easiest test and fix I could come up with. Really cheap fix.

In my boat is a Clarion CMD6 head unit with two rear CMQ1620R speakers, it distorts at medium to high volume, you cant turn it up load when going.Wishing to put two new speakers in the front, cannot cut...


Best bet is to take your boat to a qualified Marine Audio dealer (generally not a boat repair shop or marina), or to a good quality Car audio store that is insured to work on boats (separete insurance usually).
When it comes to boats, you need lots of power and speakers.
First thing to do is make sure what you have is properly installed. Then determine what is "distorting" .. is it too much base, purely volume or what.
Most boats we do (wakeboard style and river boats) we do: 40-75 watts RMS per speaker 4-6 speakers in boat 1 10" or 12" sub with 200-300 watts RMS Tower speaker if requested with 75-125 Watts RMS per speaker

This site used to have a Boat section which would have more interested parties than Cars and Parts do. I would relist to proper area. The Marine parts area is one I happened to get involved with through rebuilding my salvaged Bayliner. You need someone to be a Research Librarian to find your parts. Try using the Brand and if you can find it, then go to specifics.

I would look at the tiny ads in Boating magazines and Boating Trader type papers. When looking for my Volvo outdrive components, I discovered that speculators buy pallets of old stock from Marinas going out of business. They then list some parts on Amazon or Ebay. Unfortunately some throw away cheaper parts that you may need but are not worth it to them to list.

I live in Michigan and had found my parts in Florida and California as well as Kentucky and Tennessee. You will find that some brands are not popular in some states and the makers never had a Dealership in certain states.

I worst situation comes up, there are Boat junk yards similar to car junk yards.

You can get them second hand and often new on e bay but I would check how much they are new from a Dorel distributor such as Mothercare first as sometimes e bay is more expensive! Mothercare have a catalogue in store which they can look through for you giving prices for replacement items, they can order it and you can pick it up from store so no postage costs. Quinny decals are available very cheaply on e bay - I have used them and found no problem, looked great

I have a Lowe 24' pontoon boat ,I need the wiring schematics or diagram to rewire the lighting system..


go to the website for lowes boats and request a pdf version of the wiring for your model of boat. good luck. unless the wiring was removed or disturbed you should be able to follow the existing wiring to solve your problem. you also might find another boat like yours and look at the wiring at a marina and take notes. get permission first of course.

Position off


I recommend upgrading the system software of your GPSMAP 545s to the latest 5.30 version. Find directions and the download link here.

  1. Click on "Download" and choose to save the file to your computer.
  2. Choose a location where you can easily find the file, such as the 'My Documents' folder or 'C:\'.
  3. Once the download is complete, go to the location where you saved the file.
  4. Double-click on the downloaded file. This will automatically extract the files to C:\Garmin and run a program to transfer the software update to an SD card.
  5. Load the SD card into your GPSMAP 545s and turn it on to replace the system software of your unit.
I hope that helps.
