Boat Info
390 EC 1989 gas
Engines
454 mercruiser w/ hurth shaft drives
so in my old age i decided to sell my yamaha jet boat last year and get a bigger one that i could just dock instead of trailer. the jet boat was lots of fun but trailering became too much work.
found a very nice 89 390 express cruiser that i figured would give me what i wanted. the boat was very well maintained BUT, like all aging things, i have had to work on and fix various stuff to bring up to date.
this web site has been very helpful and, since i want to learn and properly maintain the boat, i figured i would join up.
my boat is docked in port clinton ohio on lake erie and i live in the cleveland ohio area.
appreciate all the help and insights that other members provide. bob

Welcome to CSR from a bit east of you
 
We got our 1988 last Thanksgiving weekend. We spent almost every weekend this summer on it and I worked on it almost everyone of them. Still haven't got all the kinks worked out, but I've gotten a lot of them done.

We absolutely love our 390EC and get compliments it frequently. People appreciate the looks of this classic and are blown away when they step into the enormous cockpit. If our marina didn't shut off there water over the winter, we'd be there this weekend too!
