    Re: 240 Sundeck Thread - Questions and Answers

    I think I've found a Stereo replacement solution that will work (I have an 02 with the XMD2 and M201 RCS remote). Apparently JVC (and Kenwood) makes a remote that you can perfectly fit into the opening for the M201 RCS.

    JVC KD-X33MBS for the head unit
    JVC RM-RK62M for the remote

    Re: 240 Sundeck Thread - Questions and Answers

    I think I'm going to do the Magma Swim platform pedestal grill mount. It looks pretty easy - drill some holes, squirt 4200 into them and then attach with SS through bolts/washers/nuts.

    Any opinions on mounting the pedestal on the left side of the swim platform vs under the ladder cover? I'm leaning towards the left side as I have small children and they'll almost certainly be swimming while I grill. However, mounting under the ladder cover avoids stubbed toes (not sure if that's even a big concern?)

    Re: 240 Sundeck Thread - Questions and Answers

    That JVC system worked out quite well. The remote was almost a perfect fit (I ended up putting a gasket from the electrical section at Lowes behind it to get it to fit just right. Polk DB651s are a perfect fit replacement for the original Clarion 1602s (and sound 10x better... but then again it's not that hard to improve over dual cone speakers from 2002 :-))

    Re: 240 Sundeck Thread - Questions and Answers

    Hi All,

    First time poster and hopeful new Sea Ray owner. I have an accepted offer on a 2006 24' Sea Ray Sundeck 240 and had the survey/compression test/sea trial done today. It went great until the very end when we hauled it and the surveyor showed me a 1" left and right "play" in the B3 outdrive. He explained that it is an issue related to the gimbal ring and would need fixing. He said there it involves taking out the engine and having it done, or a less expensive option but not the best way that involves a kit. He explained it will only get worse and could present a serious safety hazard if left unchecked.

    A reputable marina around here on Long Island quoted $3500 to do the full repair. I'm still waiting to get two other estimates.

    Just wondering what everyone's thoughts are on this. Do I ask seller to fix, or, ask him to knock the price of repair off, or meet in the middle. I believe(and my surveyor agreed) that I am getting the boat for a very good price(up until this was discovered).

    Risers/Manifolds/Bellows/Water Pump were done in 2015. Compressions were all 170 =/- 5. It is a Mercruiser 5.0 with B3 outdrive.

    Finally, is this as serious as the surveyor made it sound. My dad who has been boating for 30+ years says it must get fixed.

    Thanks!

    Personally I'd push to have the seller repair... probably won't go over well and he will push back. At that point try to meet in middle and settle in price. If surveyor said it needs doing then take it seriously.

    Re: 240 Sundeck Thread - Questions and Answers

    Hello All !!

    I have purchased a used 2013 Sundeck 240. It currently does not have a chartplotter. Can anyone please recommend a chartplotter / GPS. If anyone has pictures of their current electronics, that would be appreciated.

    thank you,
