Just up graded from a 1974 220srv to a 1988 300 sundancer can’t wait until summer on lake Powell
Nice boat! Isn’t is always summertime on Lake Powell?
Oh no it get real cold up there not like Great Lake cold but still to cold to play
Congratulations! Those 300’s are great boats! I loved my 87 300 Sundancer.
Thanks should be real fun on lake Powell
We had an 88 300 with twin 350s and outdrives when we were on a lake. It was the fastest big boat around. You will enjoy it a lot.
I can hardly wait that for sure. Right now it’s still in phx. But she will go to her new home lake Powell in April.
Congrats. We just made pretty much the same move. I just upgraded from my ‘89 220CC to a 280DA. What a difference! I love my 220, but it sure is nice when you can re-board the boat and have room to relax, wash off, eat, snooze, etc. I think you will be very happy with the entire atmosphere with your family on the water. We don’t feel as crowded after spending the day at Ship Island.
so...what is the fate of your 220?
Thanks I’m not to sure yet. I did a refit on her day a lot of heart went into it. For now she sits in the back yard. What did you do with yours
I have re-done my 220 from bow to stern including adding a bow roller/anchoring system to pulling the engine and rebuilding the transom and pretty much everything in-between. Lots of labor and sweat.
As for now, I plan to keep it. I intend to use it for offshore fishing and diving with my friends and keep the 280 for my family outings.
That explanation is how I rationalize a purely irrational decision to keep the 220.
Nice boat. After putting a lot of sweat and work it hard to get rid of them that’s for sure
I will continue to rationalize until the first big repair expense comes up.
Until then, she’s staying home with me.
My daughters want mine but don’t even know how to drive it
Noooooo......it can ONLY go to someone who appreciates old Sea Rays!
Have them complete an application and forward it to the CSR Ownership Review Committee to evaluate their qualifications for SR ownership.
Isn’t that how the NFL does it?
It’s funny that I’m talking about boating when I just shoveled my driveway
Two best performance mods I made to my 1987 300:
1. Swapping out the original aluminum props for bigger stainless 15 1/2” X 17 pitch made it jump on plane like a much smaller boat.
2. Swapping out the lower unit on the port side for a counter rotating lower unit improved handling around the docks. Took a long time to find one, but it was worth the wait.
I will do the props currently it has 15.5 15 4 blade
That boat must have some hole shot!
With the 15 1/2 x 17 three blade Stainless my boat had a great hole shot with no need for tabs to get up on plane.
The 5.7’s are a perfect match for the 300 Sundancers of that era.
My cruising speed was about 30 mph with a fuel burn rate of about 24 GPH.
Here’s a screenshot of the info on my MFD one early morning in NY Harbor the year before I sold her. I had repowered the boat about 3 or 4 years earlier.
