  • New Crownline Owner

    Hello, I just purchased my first boat! It's a 1998 Crownline 225BR. Its has the 454 Mag MPI. Sorry, no pics, I don't know how to post them. Do I need an account somewhere or can I upload directly here? It's white with green stripe and gold graphics. I am the 3rd owner. The previous owner owned it 12 years and the original owner did tons of upgrades. It is Whipple charged, has Brodix heads, a cam, Stainless Marine exhaust, captains choice, an IMCO outdrive with a Stern Jack, and hydraulic ram steering. I purchased it as a mechanics special. Apparently the whipple tronics have went bad causing the extra injectors to feed too much fuel and flood the engine. It runs with them disconnected. I didn't get much documentation and will have tons of questions. I will try and make separate post for those. I am technically a mechanic, although not on cars, I work on elevators. I have however been an auto mechanic on my own and for a job when younger for about 30years. I do know my way around wiring and engines. I have an 820hp turbo mustang I built entirely including a custom Megasquirt system for the injection. I boated as a kid and was around lakes growing up. I have worked on a couple boats but not many. I live on the western slope of Colorado, and will be using the boat locally as well as taking it to lake powell occasionally. I want to use it for general boating and will be adding a tower for wakeboarding. So, just a little preface about me and my boat. I do have one question to get started. Why do a lot of Crownline boats have the number 12 on them?

      Was that boat from Indiana or Illinois or Michigan? Sounds like the one that a guy had that was on here years ago. I can't think of his stage name right now though.

        I picked up the boat from a guy in Iowa. Sounds like it was built back around 2002-2003 at a place in Texas called Full Throttle Marine, as least from searching these forums and others for info thats what I'm finding.

          I was thinking it may have been an Iowa Boat, and if I recall correctly, it was on the Mississippi River.

          Full Throttle Marine would be Bob Lloyd.

            The PO did say he took it to the Mississippi and also Ozarks. So, is it as awesome as I was told or just a big hole in the water I need to throw money in?
