    If you don't plan to remove the front panels often, get strataglass. I'm on year 8 with them, and still perfectly clear. I did replace the rear panel in Eisenglass again to roll it up. After 7 years, it is shot and needs replaced to look nice, but who really looks through that panel?

I have not noticed any issues with rain coming through the top.

    I just don't know how we are going to use the canvas. I would prefer it stay up all year, but then I worry we will be cutting off a main source of breeze during the summer. On the other hand, I want it up during the summer so when the 15 minute thunderstorm pops up, no big deal. No scrambling around trying to get isinglass put up. The windshield is pretty curved, so I am not certain I can put roll up isinglass on each of the panels between the windshield and the arch. Does anyone else have roll up isinglass on a 320 (the u-shaped cutouts)?

    Spikedaddy99 - Does your Soft Top attach to a canvas/awning track, then snap shut? If so, you may have to reseal or replace the track since they can wear over time. If not, they make a huge difference with not letting water in. If you mean where canvas meets canvas, it could be the stitching (zippers or whatever fastener you're using) as they'll also wear over time. Restitching is a cheap fix that any boat canvas shop can do. I always try to keep my enclosure seems taut, but leave a little bit of play to account for weather/temp changes to avoid putting too much stress on the fabric and stitching.

    I felt the same way until I read and used the bottle exactly like it says. You have to put this on wet and it is VERY slick. Then let it dry and wipe the deck. After that it's not slippery and is amazing at repealing stains and marks. I will admit that is a bit of a pain because you have to wait for the boat to dry before wiping down the deck but the stuff is amazing.

    Joe, My problem seems to be getting the top tight against the metal tubing that compromises the hard-top. The top fits into a track on the arch, then a long string like a shoe lace gets weaved through eyelets around the tubing. I can't seem to get that tight enough. Make sense?

    Re: Official 320 Dancer Thread

    Hi all

    Trying to decide between 2006 320 and 340. Both with around 450 hours and the same kit on each. Both maintained by fanatics and both surveyed. The 320 is our fave, but the 340 seems to have a pretty good following so I thought I'd check in case anyone else has gone through this and made a decision.

    Also, I can't help but notice how close the engines (8.1 Horizons) are together in the 320s... does that create maintenance issues when being serviced by the dealer? I am not a DIY for boats (yet), so don't want additional cost for smaller repairs due to having to dismantle the engines !

    Any advice for a soon-to-be Searay owner would be much appreciated!

    Re: Official 320 Dancer Thread

    ericliebman, The admiral and I went through making the same decision last year. We ended up with the 340. The 320 would have been sufficient, but the extra 6 inches in the beam and the few extra feet in the length influenced our decision. That and the fact that the 320s and 340s we were looking at were priced pretty equally, considering the differences. Then there was V drives or I/Os, went with the I/Os - we keep the boat at home on a lift which helps to save the drives considerably. Also, a ton of room in the bilge to do maintenance. I work on my brother in laws 320 with V Drives - it is a nightmare compared to mine. Try them all - don't be rushed. You will know which one is right for you. Happy hunting.

    I love our 320 but I'd probably have to think long and hard between the 2 if we had it to do all over again. For us in salt water v drives were a must. The admiral loved the port side lounger over the forward facing seat in the 340. Personally I like the lower swim platform on the 320. All that being said it would still be a tough call between the 2.
