    Finally ready maybe. This will be the first full season for our 2001 340Da.only had this boat on the water for three weeks before season was over one week the weather sucked. Last season was typical season when you decide to move up and sell and buy another boat. Over all besides repairing a burnt valve exhaust on one of the heads in our 310Da the sale went smooth. Paid a little more for a harder to find 340Da. with 8.1s locally. The 340 was in a marina less then a 1/2 mile away didn't even to take it out on the lake to bring it to our dock. The electronics were bare minimum and out dated. 20 yr old Raymarine GPS device that didn't work a Tridata that had depth but no speed or water temp. and a basic Raymarine VHF radio,New Simrad Cruise 9 chartplotter that still has the protective film on the screen. The 2000 310 we had for 6 yrs. had updated electronics plus Autopilot and updated Radar. Unfortunately the new Simrad plotter is not a MFD. so it's sitting in my basement. So out with the Simrad in with the Garmin 1042xsv with Xhd 18 Radar coupled to a Furuno brass housing Airmar DST810 smart Transducer. Relocating everything Sea Ray mounted in the middle of the Arch in the way of install the Radar Dome mount was fun. On top of Buffing, Bottom Paint, Prop inspection, Canvas stitched cleaned and waterproofing We're ready for the upcoming season.

    Wanna do mine? I got the new mfd in, NMEA run, engine gateways in. Still waiting to tackle the radar dome. Have to fill some holes and top with gelcoat before I mount the new. New props are on. Today using one of those eraser wheels to take the old number decals off. What a mess.
