Another happy 30 foot Weekender customer. Bought a new 1986 SR at our local in the water fall boat show. We owned that boat for about 10 years and really enjoyed it. Had not heard about the tunnel drive question. We just wanted to be rid of outdrives after two boats with them. The straight inboards were great and docking was much better than I/Os. The layout was perfect for our needs and our current boat is a bigger version of the 1986 Weekender. We really enjoy it as well.

I see you have a '77 300 WE; I'm looking at a '78 30 EC. Any pro's or con's on your boat? Looks great! Does it have tunnel pockets? Although the photos are not real clear, it looks like the 78 EC has a traditional hull. Do you have any idea when Sea Ray went to the tunnel pockets on the 300's and 340's?
