    Glad to see this thread as we have just ordered a 2007 240DA, scheduled for a March delivery. We recently sold our 2002 300DA, after we were notified that our slip for next season would be approx 6k. We belong to private club now and the slip fee is less than $200, but is limited to 25' max. I know it's a big step down but we don't want to give up the cruising and overnighting. Anyway, would be happy to exchange specs and experiences with other 240 owners.

    You are not alone! We love our 240DA. As for A/C, we did the portable hatch unit. For $799, you cant beat it. It works perfectly and really cools off both the forward and aft cabin. Unless we were going to a transient slip, we left it in our dock box to save the space onboard. As asked before, what unit did you buy? Good luck with your install :)

    Thanks for all the responses

    I haven't purchased the unit yet since I want to know the details behind routing the ducts. There was not that much of a savings at the auto show so I figured I would wait as I still have time to install. I have listed my main questions below.

    -How many BTU's are required. Sea Ray parts list shows 3/8 ton?

    -What Brands are recommended. I believe Sea Ray Used Cruisair. Also saw Mermaid Marine A/C at boat show.

    -If unit is mounted in aft cabin per Sea Ray's drawing how are the ducts run. Is there a better location?


    I have a door in the shrink-wrap so I can go in to the boat if needed to look at things

    Thanks Again for all the help on this…

    The factory unit is 7000btu, slightly over 1/2 ton.

    Hey Shining;
    Remember you from SRO. I'll be up in your neck of the woods at some point this summer. You're on sacandaga right. Friends parents have a house on the lake that I missed last summer.

    I am really starting to consider the hatch option as I can now get a corner dock box at my marina. How much of a pain is it to take it on and off as I'm sure it's heavy. Also is your dock box a corner or rectangle. Need to ask because there is no way I would lug it back to the car.

    I'm also interested in what unit Jim used as he has already done this.

    The hatch unit weighs about 45 lbs IIRC. Its a little tough with one person ( i did that a lot ) but with 2 its a snap. Takes about 30 seconds to setup or take down. Since the 240 doesnt have a genset option, and i'll be in a slip with power to run the other electrics, i figured the $2200 in savings was better spnt on my future upgrade ;)

    Let me know if and when you're coming up. Maybe we can hook up.
    I'm a club member at the Sacandaga Boat Club just outside of Broadalbin.

    Hello all, 2006 sundancer da with 5.0 & bravo III. I have installed a/c but no gen. I also would like to find some type of bow roller and windless to fit. Sea Ray did make a ss bow roller but the coast guard made them stop selling them because it partlly covered the bow nav. light. I hope they come up with something. Pulling anchor is a drag (pun intended). I'll look at the 260 option and install.

    I hope this summer over the forth of july time frame I'll be taking this boat to the bahamas, Abacos specifically. I use to own a w/a fishing style boat that I took but it was just to smiple a boat to enjoy cruising with. Espically in the marinas with the yachts around you and blocking all the air off of us. Hope to enjoy the a/c this time. I'll be consertive with my weather window for the crossing.
    Thanks
    Mike

    Islandhopper,

    How do you like the performance of your 240 with the 5.0MPI?
