    Thank you Vince! I am so excited for this boat. Can’t wait much longer, working on getting it shipped. Agreed to terms about Jan 20th, survey Feb 4th and corrections are done. Needs a good cleaning from a winter if sitting

    My 380 is scheduled to be delivered Tuesday. I am hoping someone will have info on this. 2000 380 DA, the Previous owner swapped out the cockpit Ice maker for a fridge. Luckily it is dual voltage, but they only wired up the 120. Has anyone did the 12 volt part? what's the best way to pick up that 12 volt circuit? is there a chase in the salon, or am i going to need to use the engine room? to route the cable?

    Thanks in advance

    In process of going through this now... I was unable to find a way to fish directly from the power panel to above the cabin refrigerator, so I am routing a new wire from the cabins 12V circuit breaker panel through the engine compartment, and up into the cabinetry where the ice maker is now. On my '01 there was a conduit from behind the stereo to the compartment adjacent to the helm seat. It passes through the area behind the cabin 12V panel. I cut into the conduit there to feed the wire to the area adjacent to the helm seat, and from there I have a conduit that runs to the engine compartment (terminates at the firewall bulkhead). I'm running the cable along the top of the firewall bulkhead to the chase that resides above the battery bank, which you have access to if you remove the lower shelf in the cockpit cabinet under the sink. From there just fish through the partition into the refrigerator area.

    Choose your wire size carefully based on the requirements of the new refrigerator. I originally ran a 14G wire (which Sea Ray used for the cabin refrigerator), but will be replacing it with a 10 or 12 based on the requirements of the refrigerator I purchased. (Isotherm Cruise 85).

    Hello all, this is my first full year with the 380. I got it July last year and had a blast. It has been in heated storage all winter with the battery disconnected. I'd like to get the engine hatch open to check things out before they launch and bought an adapter for the 110 30A to 15A but no dice. What is the best way to get the hatch open without 12V power? Thanks

    You can remove the port side hatch over the batteries and reconnect the batteries (which may be the easiest way to open the main hatch). If you don't want to reconnect the batteries; while inside the engine compartment on the port side, you can remove (pull out) the connecting pin on the top of the hatch actuator, which will disconnect it from the hatch to allow lifting the hatch manually. You could also try to use a battery jump box connected to the 12V cigarette lighter connector at the helm station, which I have done successfully on my last boat (310 DA). You may need to turn on the Port circuit breaker in the cabin or engine compartment prior to pressing the hatch button. I can't confirm that this technique works on the 380, though. Regarding powering the boat with a 110V 15A adapter, that should work, but make sure it's connected to the correct leg of shore power (which is the Line 1 side of the cabin AC panel) and also ensure that the Line 1 main breaker is on, and the AC Converter breaker is also switched on.

    Hope this is helpful.

    RE Macerator pump. Does anyone know the brand and model that Sea Ray used for the macerator pump on the early 2000's 380? It is Sea Ray part number 134858 but that really doesn't give me much info. My boat was converted to lake use by the PO and I am changing it back and would like to find a pump that fits the same bolt pattern.
