    Hi Everyone
    It's January 3, 2016 and I just joined this forum. I only have a bimini top and I'm looking for a full cover for my 1991 Sea Ray 220 DA that I can use in foul weather when underway. Does anyone have a full camper cover for sale or know a good canvas company to make one. I checked out GreatLakesCanvas.com but they only go back to 2004. I'm grateful for all the useful posts on here. Thanks ahead of time for any help.

    I think the swim step is too high for a traditional swim step mount. I have seen two examples that I think would work.

    The first and one I think I'm going to go with is the Panther 55-0030 with a long shaft outboard. I'm not 100% on this option yet, but its looking like a reasonable one.

    The second that I have seen work is the Adventure Marine 4100 bracket, mounted under the swimstep. This seems to work well, but I have some thru hulls in the way for transducers and things, so I am probably going to go with the swimstep option if I think it'll accomodate my longshaft motor appropriately.

    Let me know if you come up with something different. I've been working on this myself.

    I'm trying to figure out how to upload pics, but I performed the installation I mentioned with some huge 1/2" bolts and a galvanized backing inside the swim step. I need to lower the bracket another 2" but I think it should work great then. Its a LITTLE too high right now and cavitates with the small motor. It still pushes the boat about 3mph or so on the gps. I hope it works a little better when I get it another 2" into the water and avoid cavitation concerns.

    Not the prettiest thing and I need to clean up a little, but its stout as heck. Overall I'm happy with it.

    I bought my friends 1989 220 a month ago.

    1. Where do you store the large table when not in use? The table that forms the base of the v berth inside the cabin.

    2. Blower tubing is just laying in engine area how are the hoses routed? There is one on each side of the engine.

    3. Boat does not have a depth finder.. I want to glue a transducer in front of the engine on the starboard side (there was a transducer there at one point the fell off).
    I would like to see picture's if any one has done this.

    4. I am looking for a plumbing diagram. This boat has the waste pump and tank but it is not hooked up. It currently has a porta potti.

    5. I also need a new SS prop. The current one is chipped. I want one that is economical; Top end speed is not so important as getting on a plane at a lower RPM.

    6. There is an switch labeled "Accessories" on the dash all the way to starbord. What is it for?

    7. I got a puddle of water in the cabin as far foward on the shelf ( it rained heavy thus morning) . I don't have an anchor locker. The cabin top us dry in front of the hatch. Any ideas where the water may be coming.


    More questions to follow.

    Thanks
    Michael

    Wow...u did a lot of improvements on that. I was just given a 1990 220da and need the interior upholstery yourself as well as the rear bench raised. Where did you find the upholstery or did you re skin everything.
    Thanks Ben

    Hi Steve, what time of toilet set up did you install. I noticed buttons on the side of the sink vanity
