      What does yours need? These are great boats, very powerful package (small boat with a 350) and can pull a water skier out like nobody's business! Do you have the service manuals and everything for yours?

          I checked my title and it does say the same, 1996. I thought it was a '95 as that is what year the Mercruiser in the boat says it is when you cross reference the serial numbers....

          I don't have any other info on this boat as the PO didn't have any of the books, etc. Do you have any of those? What options are on yours? 5.7L V8?

          Mine screams! I love it.

            5.7 L magnum
            I don't know what options were. Has middle cushion for bow and a full bikini top that you can stand under.
            I have the mercruiser operation and owners mannual and just bought a SELOC service manual
            No baja manual
            Boat runs about 53mph
            How fast is yours?

              Mine says about 55 on the Speedo, but I've yet to run it with myself and a low level of gas....

              Need to download a GPS app for my phone and see what the real numbers are....

                Not tryin to be rude but some may jump at ya for this one... its a Bimini Top not bikini...

                Great looking boat! I'm a tinny owner myself... What type of work ya doing on her? Shining the gelcoat? Floor soft? transom/stringers rotted? Is the middle glass missing from the windshield?

                  got the boat just past 60mph last weekend on speedo
                  trimmed up while racing some jet skis and other boats
                  still had more mph in her, but ran out of lake
                  this boat is a blast!

                      Hi
                      What do the two ACC switches on the dash operate on this boat?? I cant figure it out. I might have the fuses missing or something.

                      96 188 baja islander 25ann edition

                      Thanks!

                        I'm pretty sure those are lights that illuminate under the driver and passenger consoles. I will look and double check next time I'm on mine, but I know there are lights under each one that illuminate.

                          Hi
                          I was hoping the acc switches went to lights. Mine must be missing or burnt out. Do you have a fuse panel diagram for this boat?? or know which fuse goes to the lights????
                          Thanks

                            Usually those lights will be labeled "Court Lights". It isn't uncommon to have unused accessory switches....our current Baja has 2. This allows you to add things like a GPS speedo recall, additional lighting, etc.

                              What prop dimensions/pitch are you running?
