    I haven't calculated it yet! Next Friday we are taking it to Apalachacola, about 65 miles one way, and I plan to do the calculations on that. I just changed all the fuel filters and the bottom will be cleaned next week.

    A friend just bought a 05 360 with 8.1's and we are going to compare the numbers. It should be pretty interesting because the boats are very similar in size and weight.

    I'll keep you posted!

    Dog Daze Don, nice job on the TV! It looks like you need a bigger bar area though. I post some pics of mine as soon as I can. Mark

    We got our 1998 370DA in May 2008 and drove it back from Marblehead Ohio to just north of Burlington VT. Lake Erie, Erie Canal, Champlain Canal and then up Lake Champlain. 7 days and 45 locks was my introduction to inboards. I am still amazed at the response and maneuverability. Won we found true love (the 370) we searched the world over and found everything we wanted at the right price in OH. We spent the first summer leaving aboard and had the time of our life despite the very rainy summer we had up here in the north country. I have not needed to do any major modifications yet but find these posts VERY interesting and informative. I especially think the idea of hanging the flat screen from the camper canvas support framing is absolutely brilliant and will be set up for this in the spring seeing as how we have already witnessed snow here. I believe this thread will be of great help to all. I'm on the website at least three or 4 times a week and can't wait to here more.

    We love our 370 for all the same reasons you all have mentioned. This is our 5th year and it's been fun upgrading the boat along the way.(besides the usual mechanicals, carpets in/out, curtains, tables, lighting, dinghy with davit etc) Begining this year we thought about moving up to a sedan bridge, we cruise often and thought that the extra room would be great..but after carefull consideration we both thought why? we have everything we need allready, plus I know every inch of the boat. The only thing on my wish list is a tv that can be watched in the salon. So please post your pictures of any upgrades for inspiration. I'll post mine as soon as I get my computer back.
    It's going to be fun to see what we've all done to our lil 370.
    Also as far as the boats looks being timeless, have you ever noticed whether it's a decal or an example on some embroidery or even a necklace charm, they all seem to use the 370 as it's image. I'm sure we all count the portholes to see if it's a 370 and not the 330..

    I store at the Gunpowder Cove Marine Max, back in the mid '90s they had tee shirts made up with a cartoon image of the 370 on the back. I bought a couple of them and rarely wear them as I want them to last a while, even back then I knew I wanted a 370DA. I've had the 370 for five years, still like the 450DA, kind of looks like a 370 on steroids...........oh well, very happy with what I have, staying put for a few more years. I didn't mean to offend anybody that has camper canvas, I didn't want to loose the lines of the boat so I went in a different direction, mine sort of looks like FWebster's rear canvas.

    That is what my camper package looks like also. I like the fact that it maintains the lines of the boat.

    Re: Official 370 Sundancer thread

    Great info on a great boat. Here is a dumb question for you guys about these flat screen TV's in the cockpits that are now so popular in new boats and retrofits on old.

    Are these things sealed against the weather or do you have to protect them or remove them in some way?

    I intend to do the flat screen upgrade in the cabin one of these days. Lucky for me my 370 was ordered without the TV in the master stateroom (which later became standard) so now I dont have to deal with the hole in the wall. We have a small portable sitting on the gunnel shelf on the starboard side which works fine for now. I would love to see a picture of how guys have mounted larger flatscreens in the salon especially the idea about mounting it on a bracket on the wall in the mid cabin.

    Re: Official 370 Sundancer thread

    J, the flat screen in my cockpit is attached to a bracket that attaches to the radar arch. I removed the padded combing piece that hides the seam between the boat and the arch so I could attach the bracket and then re-install the combing. Now the holes I drilled to attach the bracket are hidden behind the combing. I only take the tv down when I'm not there during the week just so it doesn't get stolen. Other then that it's up all the time, even when under way. I'll try to get some pics up as soon as I can figure out how. Most of my pics are to big. Mark

    Re: Official 370 Sundancer thread

    Thanks, so I take it these things can hold up to the typical dampness they would be exposed to while in the cockpit?

    Does anyone have this. It comes in handy sometimes. Merrit Island sent it to me when I was checking into shipping by land. Mark
