Inboard vs. Stern drive on Sundancer 310

Based on your other thread it sounds like you may have bought a 97 Cruisers :)
haha no kidding.
I can't wait to unravel this mystery.


Weird things happen. When he was age 4, we discovered our son's birth was completely unregistered. Gov didn't know he existed, somehow. This is in 2004, not the dark ages. He should have pursued a career as a secret agent. Instead he now goes through life explained that his birth certificate registration number is NOT an error, he really does have a 2000 birth year with a 2004 registration.

He can be completely off grid ... not such a bad thing in this day and age o_O
 
I think the likeliest answer is that someone filled in the wrong hull number on the registration years ago. This is the only boat my Seller has owner, but who knows prior to him. I'll see the boat tonight so I can check it out.
 
here she is (att'd)

Hello all
I am shopping for my first Sea Ray. Looking at Sundancers in the '99-'04 range.
I see quite a few 2001 Sundancer 310 in my area. From what I have read this model was available both as a Stern Drive and as Inboard/V-drive. Do owners have a preference? Are there any known issues with one vs. the other? And, since half the owners don't know what they have, are there any other telltale clues I can pick up from pictures, before traveling to see the boat? Many thanks
I hope it all works out for you, issues I have with the inboard outboards is, there is constant maintenance with those drives, rather than having any of that with straight inboard, or inboard V drives, which really don’t have that extra maintenance issue one major issue with it. Sterndrives is the boot the connection between the transom and the motor. There’s always leakage there.
Good luck, Have the boat surveyed by an excellent survey company. It’s worth every penny.

I’m not sure you saw he bought a boat over a year ago - this is an old thread. Where do you keep your boat?
