      Hey! im looking at the same exact boat as yours. It s 98 with the single 7.4 I sold my 1999 290 sundancer with twin 5.0s last year and wanted to get a single for maintenance and just to simplify. We only cruise the bay and sit on the sand bar. i was looking for real world experiences with the boat and was curious on power handling characteristics etc. hows she doing?

        cobras281,
        Just saw this message from you. I have a full season under my belt with my boat now. No complaints at all! Love the boat size and handling of the single 7.4. No problem getting it around the marinas with the single, but I've had lots of experience owning singles so that doesn't scare me at all. A breeze blowing me away from the dock can get a little tricky but that is my only problem with handling.

        Had her running 36 MPH a couple days ago into the current on the big river that we frequent. Pretty impressive with a 10,500 lb boat and a big single engine. Handling at trolling and cruising speeds is phenomenal with that Bravo III.

        I had a 268 DA back in Feb 2018 (26ft Sundancer 1988). Just moved up to a 290 this past June. Sorry for the late response.

      I read that you build custom arches. I am interested in having this done. I have a 1984 SR 270 SD. My bimini is high so was wondering approximate cost
      Thanks Mike

        I guess I need to check this a little more often. Sorry for the late response and hopefully you got your arch built 7 years ago...LOL

      Hey BBY! Eventually yeah. Just been so busy and focused on getting the "little" things done.

      Sorry this took so long to answer. I don't check these visitor messages much.

      I just added the radar arch, radar etc etc. She's been on Lake Huron already this year and running great! Just a couple minor little things I'm working through like 2 frustrating little fitting leaks. I think I may have it fixed, but I won't know until I get her out this weekend.

      Hows your newly rebuilt rig running?

      Getaway is looking great! Glad you managed to get her back up and running for the 2011 season!

      Are you going to do a full write up of all the work ya did?
