Great little videos !! I can see youir going to have as much fun as we have in our '98 2655 Ciera,
We had a great summer here in Oz with our boat " Dejeurner" aka ( Take a Break ) , it's a
French name, thats the name she was called when we purchased it last year, I've resisted
changing it due to too many owners telling me it's bad luck to change the name!! so I
haven't. I think this series hull is way better than the later ones as I can attest to how
well they handle the ocean, when I drove mine up the coast to her new home I ran into
some nasty 2 to 2 1/2 metre swells in 30 knot winds and had to grind through it for 3 hours
to reach safety. ( A change that wasn't suppose to hit for several hours arrived in "Express"
mode and caught us by surprise ) and those Chimes around the hull did their work very well !!!
Have great fun !!
Cheers. :)

Our wide body 2655 got a good test recently as well Wilko. Ran into some breaking 2 metre swells around where Pumicestone passage meets Moreton Bay. Running into them was no problem, but she didn't like it too much coming back in in a following sea; very hard to keep in a straight line.

Looking forward to our first away trip next weekend (May long weekend) - It is going to be a blast. Off to Port Browning on Pender Island with friends who have a bigger boat. Should be a hoot!

We did see the bumper car maneuver but unfortunately the GoPro wasn't rolling at the time. Practice makes perfect. My first berthing attempt when we got back from that jaunt didn't go much better. Just glad I didn't bump into anything after a couple attempts ;-)

Was it just me or did I notice a lot of wagging in the vids? My 2000 2655 did that when I got it and I ended up getting my steering pin replaced and all was good (and much easier to back into the dock)

Definitely a lot of wagging - not sure it was faulty steering but more my first time driving the boat and trying to get a feel for how she bites in at slow speed. Will keep an eye on it though. Where is this steering pin located? On the steering column or at the leg?
Thanks

My 2655 tends to wag a lot at very low speed. Usually the trim tabs reduce it but I try to keep my eyes up ahead and not on the bow of the boat and then I don't tend to over-compensate as much on the steering wheel.

Try just putting one trim tab down to help cure the wondering tail. It use to work for me. Just remember to pull it up as you accelerate or before backing up.

I don't have to fiddle with the trim tabs to stay straight. The steering pin is on the outdrive. Once mine was replaced all was good at idle and above.

Not to reshow the video but there is a safety issue in it. NEVER step over the windshield. Open it and walk through. Someone will crash coming back from the deck and when they fall, look beside your helm seat to see how many bones you can break on that deck? Going out, a foot can crack that safety glass. Your trip looked like fun but you don't want anyone to fall on your boat.

Right you are - it was a first foray out on my own that day especially in this style of boat. Since then I have read the manual and warning label by the step up - I have subsequently mended my ways and do not allow anyone on the bow while under way/making way. That is to say I will allow someone up there while under way but boat engine must be in neutral and not making way sea state permitting. I do also make sure the window is open as well when my agile young crew members go forward. Live & learn so vmt for pointing this out...
