Been a while since I had a boat bigger than an inflatable. Years ago I had a Sail Boat and spent a couple years cruising Mexico. I want to back to Baja and decided long ago if I ever did get to go I would do it on a power boat. Was looking for a trailable trawler but they are few and far between here in the west not to mention expensive. The Sundancer's were a good alternative and locating one with a trailer in AZ was do-able. Bought a 94, 270 a month ago brought it home to Tucson and spent a few weeks and a few hundred $$ on the trailer brakes. The prop shaft seal was leaking and fortunately for me the only shop in town who is a dealer just moved about 4 blocks from my house. For the cost of a seal and a couple hrs labor it pressure tested OK. (It has a 7.4 Mercruiser with a Bravo 3) With everything ship shape we headed for a very small lake just E of Nogales close to the Border. My wife is a first timer at boating and fortunately launching the 270 went well. Our two Labradors were along for the weekend cruise so getting to shore was a priority. Being a sail boater the prospect of beaching a boat was nerve wracking. The boat in camp site we chose was 40' deep 6' from shore, we coasted in and tied the bow off to a tree inflated the dinghy and got the dogs to shore. Whew! That was easy! Fed the critters and then ourselves and were treated to a beautiful Sunset Spent Saturday putting around the lake practicing docking & learning which switch does what. The Sundancer was amazing. I have sailed 40' boats from San Diego to Loreto on the Baja I was intimidated by the 27' Sundancer because I had never handled a powerboat before. I lost a bunch of sleep over nothing. It sure was fun getting on plane in spite of the small area that was designated a wake zone. Handeling it at low speed was a breeze - probably because there wasen't one - Putting it back on the trailer went really well and the tow home went OK. Did loose a bearing buddy off one of wheels, have to sort that out but over all I am very impressed with the boat and think it will serve me well for a 4 to 6 month cruise to Baja in a couple years when I retire. My wife loved it and all looks good. I am terrible at taking pictures but someday I will get one and post it.
