We just purchased our first boat on Thursday, a 2007 Speedster Wake 430hp. I've been on the water my whole life but this is the first boat I've had to call my own.
So far it has been a lot of fun except for two issues.
1. The tower speakers do not work. The seller told me that they did the last time he had it out, but we couldn't get them to come on when I was inspecting the boat. I negotiated a lower price b/c of this, and he agreed to cover hardware costs for repair (but of course I can't get ahold of him now, so I have little faith in that). After going through all the wiring to the amp, and checking all fuses I can't seem to come up with an explanation other than the amp is blown. When I first started workign on it, the little red LED light on the amp was flashing, which the manual indicates the amp has gone into thermal protection, and now I have no light at all, and no sound from the tower speakers, which really bums me out.
2. I cannot get the ballast pump to fill or drain the ballast tank. When I flip the switch I get no sound or anything. We put a mutlimeter on the wiring harness going to the pump, and there is no power back there. Any places we should be checking? We checked all the fuses we could find, the ones behind the dash, and the ones near the battery behind the rear seats and they were all good.
Any help with either of these two issues would be much appreciated. I love this boat and I want to enjoy all its features!
