    Sundancer How long is too long

    It's that time of year again where I seriously consider selling my 50 DA. Probably going to write up a new description, take new pics and get it listed within a month.

    Sundancer How long is too long

    2004 50 SunDancer here and we routinely spend 3-4 nights with 4-6 people. We have an absolute blast. Nice big open cockpit with shade, AC, heat, wet bar and seating for a ton of people. There have been times when I'd look back and count 18 people hanging out on my boat.

    QSM 11 Maintenance Protocol & 1000hr Service??

    What model boat? The QSM11's have different service recommendations based on use, commercial vs recreational if I remember correctly. If you are starting from base line the usual is recommended, impellers, oil change, zincs, after cooler cleaning, etc. The over propping and associated...

    Garmin Echomap options

    Looking to add a basic chartplotter w/internal GPS to my boat. The 9" models will fit with the included mounting bracket. My question is which Echomap model to get? The 93sv or the 94sv? Not concerned with the processing or transducer options but rather I want to make sure the included...

    Stereo Upgrade

    Sounds a bit too confusing and complicated for me. I have the T Mobile wifi setup on my boat so wifi isn't a problem but hardwiring the headunit to the T Mobile router would be a major PITA. If everything connects wirelessly then I will probably give this a go. If hardwiring is required I'll...

    Stereo Upgrade

    Speaking of stereo upgrades, the one boat has an older Kenwood headunit and although it's BT compatible and has a remote on the helm I'm interested to see if I can upgrade to a Fusion unit and also upgrade the head unit on the Sea Ray to get the Party Bus mode for these two boats. I did a...

    Mid Winter Checkup

    Had the Fountain delivered to my home so it's sitting in the driveway. Finally had decent temps today so I installed the shrink wrap zipper door and climbed inside for the first time. Zero headroom with the shrink wrap coming off the windshield but it was fun to hang out for a few. I'll be...

    Upper Bay freeze up

    I'm hearing of ice in the Upper Bay as well. Good news is bright sunshine today with 40s Tues/Wed and into the mid to upper 50s for Thursday-Saturday. Almost warm enough to go for a boat ride.

    So, lets talk weather....

    Decent amount of snow at the marina in Bear, DE. Good excise to spend the day at the boat cleaning off the snow. 50s by the end of the week.

    Onan generator starting issues

    It cranks but for only 1-2 seconds. Then I have to release the button, hold it down, see the lights blink then it will try to start again. Only goes for 1-2 seconds then no more. Some times I only need to do this 2x and it starts right up and others it's a 20x. It goes through the proper pre...

    So let's hear about and see your cars.

    Lots of modifications done yet maintaining the OEM look including an ECU tune. It's significantly faster and more powerful than the other 3 Twin Turbos I've had over the years.

    So let's hear about and see your cars.

    I don't know how you guys and these big HP cars actually drive them. I've had lots of cars but this current 300zx Twin Turbo is a handful. It's nice and mild under 3000rpms but when the turbos kick in at about 3200 you are in for a wild ride. Pretty much lose traction in 1st-3rd gear. The...

    Onan generator starting issues

    Odd thing going on the past few times I've used the Onan diesel generator. Runs perfectly, puts out power, generally no issues except when starting. Not really having issues starting, but rather the starter doesn't seem to stay engaged long enough to get it to start. I have to let go of the...

    Mid Winter Checkup

    I still manage to get to the boat at least once a week. Sometimes it's for a few hours of "work" and others it's just for a couple to minutes to check on things. Boat is now snow free and awaiting the next bit of snow forecasted to come on Friday.

    Am I crazy?? Thinking of buying a Fountain go fast...

    Figured it's a sign if I've been thinking about a go fast for going on 3 years now. Decided to buy a 29 Fountain last night. It'll be very interesting to see how much we use this thing. Could be the best or worst decision ever. We will find out in a few weeks when spring finally arrives...

    Thoughts on a 44 DA

    Any thoughts on the 03-08 50 DA? I found that the prices were the same, or even slightly less, than the 06-08 44DA with QSCs. Love my 03.5 50DA.

    Am I crazy?? Thinking of buying a Fountain go fast...

    My parameters? Well, my point of reference is about 22knts so there is zero reason for a 100mph boat. I really think the 29 Fountain Fever with a single 525 blue motor is ideal. Of course it's gotta be the deal of the century. I'll use NADA to my advantage which is not in line with reality...
