      You mentioned in a thread having an excel doc with mileage port to port on both sides of mitten. Can I request a copy from you?
      We just bought a 500DA in Benton harbor and going to plan a trip to bring in home to lake st clair. My email is almightys@yahoo.com thanks in advance!

      Thanks! Any things to look at with this boat before buying?

      What were you cruising at with the 6 people on board?

      I’m looking at buying a 1998 330 sundancer with twin 5.7.

      Wondering how well this would plain out/cruise with 10-12 people on it? Any experience with having many people aboard and getting on plain with these smaller engines?

        Evan, I had two 1996 330's, both with the 5.7's. I don't recall having that many people on board because it would have been just too crowded. The 330 is perfect for about 6 people because keep in mind that nobody wants to be down below when you're running on plane. I think the 330 is just about the perfect boat for any inland water and, with the right weather conditions it's a good coastal cruiser.

        We had ours in the San Juan Islands and ran on plane in 5'-6' waves most of the way to Victoria BC The only reason we came down off plane was the girls didn't like the ride. I was loving it.

        I think the 330 is just about the perfect boat for inland waters and, with the right weather is a good coastal boat.

      Hi, I was wondering if you could send me the spread sheet you made up of the great lakes.
      Thanks, Don
