    My Sea Ray sundancer

    They don't build 'em like they used to. John, I had read an article a few years ago about folks who "shop" around to find older sea rays. Mine was a one owner and was always maintained. I am hoping to get something bigger in a couple years, so we can cruise for a week or two at at...

    Call goes out: mandate boat licensing. Should they do it or not, If you really think

    License is an excuse for government revenue A license will serve no purpose but to generate more revenue for government.

    Leaky row boat

    The problem may be that the rivets are fatigued and just putting a sealer on it may not give you a solution but more headaches. As another boater suggested doing new rivets is simpler than you think. I would remove the old rivets in the affected area, seal the seam and pop new rivets in...again...

    GPS upgrade problem...

    Sea Ray forum

    How about adding a forum for Sea Ray boat owners. We know there are other web forums for Sea Ray owners... but my experience is if you do not have the latest are a "retread" boater. I am sure it would attract many of the vintage owners like myself.
