Hey Everyone - newbie here - to the forum and to boating. I've been looking for a new (used) boat for months. I started looking at fishing boats (walkarounds, expresses). Wife really wanted something that can sleep the 4 of us (and a dog). Checked out Sea Ray, and without knowing much more, I was really impressed. The layouts are fantastic and aside from being easy to fish with, they really suit our needs. So then I start doing research, and hear a lot of talk about the headaches an I/O will give you if it's sitting in salt water. I live on Long Island (south shore) and this boat would be in the salt for at least 4 months. Am I getting myself into a maintenance headache?? (i'm not an engine guy - i'd need someone to work on it). The boat i'm currently considering is a 2005 280 Sundancer with twin 5.0 260HP Bravo 3's with under 200 hrs on them. The sales guy is also recommending a 260 with a single screw (2009). Somehow, I'm thinking a larger boat with twin screws will benefit me in the long run. Any thoughts or advice are welcome! Thanks.
