  2. I have neglected my dripping shaft seal for too long... its time to dry out that bilge. Good Morning Crew, I have an '87 Sunsetter. I am planning to replace the old-school rope/packing seal with the Flex Gland Shaft Seal setup... https://skidim.com/flex-gland-system-1.html Does anybody have experience with these? Are they as good as they look? Also, a bit of square windshield trivia... does anybody know the prop shaft diameter on an '87 Sunsetter? It would be cool to get it ordered before the next time I will be able to take an actual measurement.
  3. Hello All, the questions are at the bottom and made bold. just wanted to give some preface Im in the process of picking up a project square windsheild 'bu. it will be my first true inboard boat (yes, im really excited for it). the hull looks to be in great shape, only one hit on the keel towards the bow of the boat. the floors are solid, i removed the board behind the engine and the plywood looked like new. the seats are rough and wherever there are rips the wood frame has rotted through. the strut, driveshaft and rudder seem to replaced in recent times, all solid with little to no p

  8. Hello all, I am looking at possibly purchasing my first big boy boat. I gave grown up on the lake and owned multiple boats(outboards/i/o) and skied behind both. I would like to possibly get into surfing, and have been scouring listings for a while now trying to let the perfect fit of my criteria appear, and I think it might have happened. Found a 97 sunsetter vlx with under 400 hours and in my budget, asking 13k I just want some assurance before I pull the trigger too quickly, but in comparison to everything else out there it seems like quite the deal- https://www.facebook.com/
  9. Think i found a boat, going to look at it tonight and test drive it. Only down fall i have seen from the pictures is its missing the center walk through windshield. Any idea were a guy could find one? thanks
  10. I've looked in previous conversations on here and scoured Google with no luck. I need to completely replace the rub rail on my 97 Sunsetter VLX. The issue I'm running into, mine has two short legs on the back that are the same length. All the ones I'm finding have one leg longer than the other. Does anyone know where I can find an OEM style replacement? Thank you!

    Malibu VLX Bow Cushion

    I am looking for the center bow filler cushion for a 2001 Sunsetter VLX. Is anyone interested in selling theirs? Location near Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio.
  14. Looking for some helpful insight from an experienced crowd. I grew up skiing on the SV23 Diamond hull with direct drive. It was an amazing boat for skiing, but we did zero wake-boarding or surfing. I have little experience in either. I am currently looking to get my own boat and am looking at Sunsetters from 97-05. A wide variety in these boats makes me interested in hearing what people have to say. As I grew up skiing, I want to make sure I can still free ski enjoyably. I do not intend on running slalom courses with this boat. So my questions are: 1.Skiing behind the V25 Diam
  15. Hey Guys, First post here, I have been following this website for some time now. I just purchased my first boat, 2005 Malibu Sunsetter LXI with 499 hours on the 383 HammerHead. We are coming from my wifes familys old inboard outboard, so new to the direct drive boats. It is definitely a learning curve, but we are loving it so far. We are a ski family so my first ski last weekend in complete rough water was better than any good day I had behind the old one! I am looking for some information on where I might be able to find a Launch Seat for additional seating for skiing, as we
  16. Just picked up my 1st inboard boat. Got it for $2500 with about 1300 hours on it. It was a trade in at a local dealer that has been sitting since 2017. I was told it was winterized. I figured I would start a thread where I can ask questions as they come up. 1st Question - what motor is it? The motor serial number is - 1C972438, the boat serial number is - MB2W2224D000. It looks like its fuel injected. Indmar Monsoon 325? 2nd Question. The starter is JUNK. I tried hooking the battery right up and bypassed the bendix/solenoid and it was drawing a ton of current. I pulled it
  17. Hi, I have a 1998 Sunsetter VLX. To make what would need to be done to make surf able wave?.
  18. Hi, I just joined the forum to get some advice. I searched for this specific question and couldn't find a thread so I'll ask here. I am shopping for a Sunsetter and found a boat I REALLY like. It's a 1998 LX. I inspected and drove it yesterday. The boat is in fantastic shape with two concerns. 1. When returning to the dock after running at speed for 20 min, i noticed loud ticking at idle. I'm not an expert mechanic but I do know a little and I think its from the valve train. Are these engines known for lifter noise? It's pretty loud. You notice it even with the motor cover down

    How to Create Wake?

    ‘01 Sunsetter 21 LXi. Looking for tips on how to create an ideal wake for surfing. Essentially just a ski boat now.
  20. Hi everyone, I have a 1998 Malibu Sunsetter. The last two times I've had a few problems. It has bogged down a little bit and haven't been able to get up to speed. As it gets moving, the boat quits and the gauges freeze where they were. The boat won't immediately restart, but after sitting a few minutes, it starts and will run for a little while longer. The last time we took it out, we faced these issues and hung out on the lake for a while, and when we were ready to leave, I tried it one more time and it ran great. Got up to speed no problem. Any thoughts?
  21. I have a 1990 malibu sunsetter. It has a 5.7 mercruiser in it. I am trying to find where the fuel filter is.. I already replaced the fuel\water seperator filter
