    Closed on buying her the last weekend in June....made for a short summer. Here's a pick as we walked away after doing our part of winterization and taking stuff back home for the winter. Sure made some good dock neighbor friends at the marina, it's going to be a long winter as we await April '19 to arrive and getting her dunked back in the water.

    Nice pic - she looks like she's thinking WTH?! Recently went from a 6 month season to year round - love it.

    I don't know how you folks do it. 30 more days and I will shut her down but she stays in the water and I use her as my man cave.

    She is a great looking boat! Any plans for the winter upgrades?

    Thank you,
    Mostly plans for maintenance, and replacement of important parts to help resale value, after spending time on dock neighbors boats and enjoying this one (we spent every weekend of the summer on her)...wife already wants a bigger one. Just got her end of this past June, I feel like investing a bit in the engines for longevity and resale value..water pumps, belts, headers/risers. Hull 'n top sides need a serious buffing/waxing. Send props out for recondition, replace H2O heater.

    300 is a great boat and great for getting your feet wet in the cruiser life. I've had mine for 6years now and I have been looking to move up. For my area, I can't find one to beat her.

    Good luck.

    We bought ours on the 1st of August, 1990 310 Sundancer. Currently wrapped and on shore. Outside temps are currently in the mid 20's F. It's gonna be a long winter......Sharp looking boat!!

    Ahh so you felt that "short summer" even more than us! Yes...long winter ahead of us, with major anticipation for an early spring launch!

    Yup....I'm way behind in my spring "to do list" on her...all risers/manifolds are off, hot water heater out, still gotta paint the water line, put in new water heater, put manis/risers/elbows in, think I'll put new bilge pumps in. New canvas top and strata glass for forward of radar arch.
