      Have any of you guys replaced the portholes? I'd like to find something close to OEM. The old ones pretty much self destructed coming out, dang all that 5200

          I talked to a few people and I think these will fit. Ill report on them. Should be better than the OEM ones with the Lexan windows.

            Well been workin on the boat for while, thought I'd post an update. Descriptions with the pics. I've done a few more things like replace the other lights in the boat, been rewireing, replacing the macerator and hosing, scuppers, new stereo and speakers, new side vents (the old ones let rain drain inside, didnt want that), and a bunch of little interior things while it was winter. Overall its been a great learning experience, its my first solo boat restoration.

            Carpet and a lot of the other stuff will probably be next years project. I just ran out of time, got to work on the running gear now!

              Looks great dude! Love the look of your refinished teak but must admit I don’t envy the maintenance.

              I'm pretty sure this stuff is pretty durable, its some newer synthetic stuff. Plus its going to be covered most of the time so should last a long while... Hopefully, its was a paint in the butt.

              Haha I wish I would of saw that, but I did find the correct size and didnt need to do any cutting which was nice. The hardest part was getting the old ones out! Bayliner went nuts with the 5200.

            So my boat came with 3 props and I thought I'd defer to the 2556 pros. The prop thats on it (the only markings I could find on it was a "1" stamped in it) has a bulge on the inside probably from some past winter so it probably needs to be replaced by one of the other two:

            quicksilver 48 18616 a43 21p
            -or-
            a6 48 18610 a42 15p

            Or would neither of these two not be suitable?

                Its the 7.4

              #99
              The 21 pitch prop was stock on the Bravo II package with the 7.4..
              Not sure about the 15 pitch one, or the one on.
              I switched to SS 17.75x21, loved it, kept the AL as a spare. Never regretted it in the 10 years we owned the 2556

                Thanks! Stainless is great until you hit something right? You just dont bend the prop, but the driver gear also so I've been told.

              Depends on the size of what you hit. They are more resistant to small strikes, vibrate less (because they don't bend when you hit small items.) they still have rubber hubs which shear as protection.

                Just purchased a 1991 2556. It needs some work, but overall in good condition. Its currently in the water, and I plan on bringing it home in a couple of weeks.
                one question is my trim tabs don't work from either station. There is an electric pump that runs when I raise and lower the outdrive - a mercruiser 454 with a bravo 2 outdrive. But where is the pump for the trim plates located?
                thank you.

                  Trim tab pump should be mounted in the engine bay, port side on the transom. Somebody could have removed it. Looks like this.

                    Great. Thank you. I think I did see something similar to that mounted to the transom wall just under the decking. I will take a look for it.

                  Do any of you guys have, or know where I could find the removable fiberglass storage box behind the door? I have that bait-well and I'd really like to tear it out if I can find one. Its just too big down there and I cant replace my belts very easily.

                    what year of 2556 do you have? not all years had the "removable" box, but it was a box that was epoxied in. it can be cut out to make access to the front of the engine easier and to increase the storage room.... in my opinion, it is not good for a fish or crab box because the heat of the engine keeps it way too warm, unless one has a constant supply of fresh seawater washing thru it...

                    and as a storage box, it is not good because when it gets a little moisture in there (and it DOES) the heat from the engine will quickly cause rust, mold or mildew on anything kept in there... cut it out and replace it with plastic totes... any moisture will have a chance to evaporate into the constant supply of fresh air that passes thru the engine compartment....

                    Thanks centerline2, its a 91 so it has the live-well. I was asking to see if anyone had a spare box, but I just ended up cutting a hole in the well for engine access and I think it'll work (until I need to replace the fuel tank, then the whole thing needs to come out ). The piece I cut out was at an angle so it will just fall back into place so I can put lines, hoses, and other misc things. I think I'll cut a venting hole in the side for more air flow, thanks for the advice!

                  Where you located? I have one but imo and like centerline said some removable storage containers are the way to go. I can fit 6 of them in that area if needed, I currently only have 2 containers and my bbq in that area but it’s awesome being able to drop down in there to access the front of the engine for whatever reason.

                    Everett. You have other containers in that space in place of the fiberglass liner? Is there a shelf below yours, because mine is just the fuel tank.
