    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!

    Batman, did you end up buying that 240 Sundeck?
    If it were me, I'd ask for some $$ off the asking price and have the repair done myself. There is a great chance that if the seller agreed to do the repair before the sale, he would find the cheapest mechanic who would do a sub par job. Have the repair don yourself and you could be sure it was done right.

    I switched to a $40 cover support strap system from Overtons, overtons.com/modperl/product/details.cgi?pdesc=Cover

    Thanks again for the comment. The link indicates it will fit boat up to 22 ft. Will that work ok on a 240 Sundeck?

    It fits mine. Stop has hooks on each end that attach to the rear cleats, I looped the strap through the anchor locker at the front, using the slots for the bow ladder to keep it in position. I'm in season 5 with it. The 1 pole that they give you works great for the cockpit support, it has a cross member that spreads the load and keeps the stats in position. I added a single pole with a snap to the bow area, to keep it elevated for snow loads.

    A bad day at the lake is better than a good day at the office.

    Re: 240 Sundeck Thread - Questions and Answers

    So I'm thinking of making a 430NM trip in my 2001 SD 240 from NY to VA, has anyone done such a long trip on the intercoastal in a 240?

    Re: 240 Sundeck Thread - Questions and Answers

    Does anyone have the center windshield from their 240 Sundeck that you are looking to sell, the part that opens allowing access to the bow area?
    Maybe you removed it and its been sitting in the shed for a few years, or you sold the boat without it?

    I need to replace mine (2007 model year) I called Taylor Made and got their pricing for the piece, which is why I'm looking for a used replacement.

    I'm making a lexan replacement for the time being, just not sure that will hold up as far as surface scratches.

    The Sea Ray # is 1801271

    You can reply here or send me a message.

    Thanks.

    Re: 240 Sundeck Thread - Questions and Answers

    Do you have the frame? You could take it to a glass shop and have them install new glass. Thinking of mine it is just flat glass. I broke the slider window inside of my cap of my truck and the dealer wanted I think $200, and the glass shop cut one for less than $20

    Re: 240 Sundeck Thread - Questions and Answers

    I have the frame. It isn't flat. There is a slight curve to the glass. I ordered some 1/8" 24"x24" lexan from Amazon. I cut it to fit and that will have to do for now. It looks good, just not sure how it will hold up, will it still be clear in a few months? Time will tell.
