    But seriously your 260 looks great
    The air conditioning unit isn't the problem Chuck..............trying to find a long enough power cord to keep it working when you leave the dock is the real issue.

    Hi Chuck,

    GREAT PICS! The camping canvas is exactly what I was thinking. It's nice to be able to see what it would look like. After looking at the pictures, I'm thinking of taking a day and going out on the boat this week.

    Dave, thanks for the reply. That is great information; exactly what I was looking for. We're still torn, but still have a year or two to decide. :) But we'll probably stick with a bowrider for the the 2nd boat, for reasons you say. We love to cruise around (did some of that yesterday) and also love watersports (did some of that too yesterday), so a larger bowrider sounds like the ticket for the time being.

    We're thinking about going to the Annapolis on-water boat show this weekend, but I'm kind of afraid...I don't want to be any more tempted than I already am looking at brochures and pictures of other people's boats!

    Glad you I could help. I've started a new site with some of my trips and boat pictures. Just remember a bad on the water is better than a good day at work. and make sure you don't take to cell phone with you when the boss calls

    I know how you feel Gunn, I wish SeaRay would come back with the small sport Overnighter or SunSport. You can still get a 240 SunSport outside of the US. It is on SeaRays International site. Would be the best of both worlds Cruising and water sports for the kids. Watch out for those boat show, they can really get you in trouble--- Common Cell phone call from the show--"Honey how much is in the account, just put a deposit down on the new boat, it was such a good deal"

    chuck1, there is always the 290 Sunsport... if all goes well, it's likely my next craft.

    50 to 51 should normally a best in ideal conditions with what now is the largest motor from SR. With my stock 7.4 it would do 48-49 just about any day with our normal load. A 6.2 should do about the same if not 1 MPH more just based on the weight savings. After some engine mods mine would do 50-52 on a good day and that was with an estimated 350-375 HP. I think that's why SR still won't offer a 496. It'll put it out of the price point and really doesn't give you much more performance.

    With the new motor, I'm still dealing with prop issues (cavitation burn) but with a normal summer load and in 102 temps this summer it still did about 64. I'm on another prop combo which feels much better and actually has increased cruise and top end speeds a little.

    Fuel consumption always comes up so let me dispell the myth now. :cool: I don't burn any more, and sometimes maybe less, that I ever did, as long as I stay out of the throttle. I can make the fuel gauge move if I want to, but I can also get up on plane and to a nice comfortable cruise speed and never break 2800 RPM if I wanted to. Open the secondaries for long and at 5000 RPM I can drain the tank!
