Just wanted to say hello. I just picked up my new old boat, a 1977 V240 Weekender last weekend. She'll need some TLC but she'll be a safe sea worthy boat when I'm ready to launch.

I'm looking forward to meeting some new friends at Club Sea
Ray.

You will both probably have alot to share I'm sure - He's another "Jeff" by the way.

Hi Jeff,
I purchased a 1980 24 late last year. Looks the same,mine is a light blue. Funny I tow it with my dodge 1500 4x4. I'm hoping to splash the old girl this up-comming spring. This first year has been spent working the gremlins out of the running gear. It's a labor of love. After all we all know the real meaning of the word "B.O.A.T." BREAK,OUT,ANOTHER,THOUSAND..(LOL).

I'm looking forward to getting her back in shape. Its been a long time since I've messed around in power boats so I need to re-learn a lot.

Welcome! The Weekender is one of SR's finest looking as far as lines in my opinion. Good layout too. Is that a yellow hull? Can't tell if that's a faded yellow or cream...

Sounds like you are committed dollarwise to the restoration/renovation. At least not underestimating the task.

So did JC Weekender ever finish his resto? I don't remember any postings and couldn't find the end results in a search?

It will be a great boat, my '76 SRV200 is. Welcome to the site and another yellow bottom too.

This past year it spent still in storage. A crazy year for him with a new house and growing family. I'm guessing he will be back at it over the winter / spring.

Thanks. The hull is yellow. A bit faded yes, but definitely not too far gone to bring back.

This is the third project boat I've picked up in the past 6 years. Two sail boats and now the Sea Ray.

I sold the first one and made some money. I kept my 1966 Bristol 29 sloop and now I'll probably keep this one too.

I'm a dedicated bottom feeder when it comes to buying boats. My old boats all have the common features that I love....Free & clear & no payments.

By the time I'm finished they look good. Not showroom-good but nice.
