    Official 240 Sundancer Thread

    Looks like DaveS has started the 260 thread so I'll follow in his wake and start the 240DA thread.
    Chime in all you 240DA owners and talk about your boat. If you don't have one and maybe interested in buying one, ask your questions here.
    The biggest thing that bothers me about my boat is that no anchor roller came with it. A big over-sight on the design of that boat. Other than that, I wish I had a bigger motor.
    It's a great boat for us!

    Hello Mike, Seems like Sea Ray agreed with you. They made the anchor roller/chute an option in 03. Have you considered an aftermarket chute? Take care, Brian

    Brian..I have been looking at them but not sure which would fit the best, or brand is better. I know I could go to Sea Ray and ask, but if anyone knows of one that would fit right, please let me know. It's my #1 thing to add once it's out of storage in the Spring. My wife is tired of dropping the anchor. :roll:

    Here's a pic taken today as she heads off to sleep for the winter. (inside storage at $10 a foot.)

    Mike, I had to have my anchor chute replaced after an #ss hole(sorry for the term) hit my boat while it was slipped and never had the decency to leave a note on my boat. :evil: Anyway, I had Marine Max put a new one on. I imagine the anchor chute would be around the same size as I had in my 260DA. Part #/MM302775. With tax and freight was 461.00. This does not include labor to install. (I think around 100 dollars) Money well spent if you want my opinion. Take care, Brian

    All 240'ers,

    I am just diving in here. We picked up a 2002 240DA this summer and I can confidently say that it made our summer!
    Anyone looking to install air conditioning, power inverter, LCD TV, DVD, or XM radio, I can at least offer some pearls of wisdom on what we did.
    Looking forward to getting to meet more 240 owners here.

    Life is better when boating,

    Jim

    Mike,

    Thanks for the welcome!
    I have gotta tell ya, I was a complete bum this whole summer about taking any photo's. I was planning on getting the boat out on the water this fall with some nice fall colors in the background and getting some good pic's of the boat. This is where the lug nuts fell off of the plan. About the middle of the second week of September the engine/drive coupling failed! Dead in the water, literally. By the time the ensuing repair was done cold weather and the end of our slip contract was looming. So, end of end of season for Jimmy. This really pissed me off as I was really looking forward to some fall boating and overnights.
    So, I guess the photo shoot is going to have to happen in the spring. I'm not big on boat pictures sitting on the trailer.
    Have a great weekend, hope you are still out enjoying!

    Things go better with boating,

    Jim

    03' 240DA A/C install

    First off let me start by saying how happy I am that the boards are back. I was going through withdrawal like you would not believe.

    I wanted to bring a topic that I started talking about in SRO back.

    Jim;
    I believe you commented to my post in SRO and I am going to start the process of installing A/C in my 240 da. I went to the NY boat show to locate some dealers and most want 3000+ for it installed which I thought was kind of high; but that’s what I have you guys for. I have a few drawings and part numbers but nothing about how everything is setup in the aft cabin. If I am not mistaken you have to build a new box so that the duct work can run. Any help you guys can provide would be greatly appreciated.

    Let me know if I should start a new thread with this.
    Thanks,
    Luis '03 240DA 5.0MPI

    You might want to start a new thread. It will attract more attention that way.

    Ifalla,

    How have you been? Well I trust....
    One of the first things that you are going to need to get is the circuit breaker for the A/C unit that fits in your boats electric panel. The part # is MM461443. I believe that is a Marine Max number, not SeaRays. The cost at Marine Max in Oakdale MN was $22.49 + $2.92 shipping.
    My boat is currently buried in storage so I am not going to be able to provide photos until it gets pulled. But, I think we can get you moving on the project.
    It would help me help you if you would reply back with what A/C unit you purchased????

    Take Care,

    Jim
