You are going to love it!
Awesome news.... congrats on the new boat!!
THAT-A- WAY DOUG,
glad you found the boat you wanted. I'm sure the admiral is just as happy. :smt038
That's great news! Congrats. I did the same thing with the water button, btw. Also the little key switch in the head, the head button on the panel, the breaker switch in the lazarette... The manuals weren't much help. Then there are the buttons that "probably' don't do anything but I'm still not really sure (eg. the DIM up and DOWN buttons?).
On a side note, just got back from our run down to Ocean City Maryland. 160 miles round trip and VERY PLEASED to report no problem with the 280 whatsoever. I'll post more on our trip on another post. Suffice it to say, you really learn alot about your boat on a long run like this. (ALso learned that "3 to 5's" are not alot of 'fun' -esp when your 7 year old just finished strawberry milk for breakfast :smt100 . Nice "1 to 3's" this afternoon coming back though. )
Thank you all! This forum is really becoming more then a group of people with similar interest. More like a bunch of friends with the same hobby.
We got back from our first trip on the new 280 late yesterday. We had no major issues or damage.
I got to thinking about the vehicle location. If we all got on the boat at the marina where we purchased the boat then did our trip then went to the marina where our slip is located we would not have a car there. What we did is my daughter and I drove the boat from the one marina to the other. My wife dropped us off, then, with the rest of the kids, she did some shopping and packing then met us at our marina.
I got experience docking with twins. I tried both methods, using only the throttle and using the wheel. To be honest, it was very calm and ideal conditions. I had docked many times with our old 240 Sundancer with the single drive and, well, not trying to brag, but I often got complements on how I docked it perfect every time.
To some up, each time it was easy and perfect with using either method. I have not decided what one I will do. I may do a mix. At the gas dock the attendant said I came in the best of all the boats that came in that day. He said this on his own; I was not fishing for a complement. After that I told him this was only the second day that I drove the boat, we just got it.
Well, I have a lot of questions but think I may start a new thread in hopes of it being a resource for other members in the future.
Pictures and updated signature will come in time.
Congrats Doug, Let's see her. THAt's FANTASTIC! :thumbsup:
Most, if not all of the systems on your new boat, are identical to those on the 300, 320,340 etc....so any questions should produce a wealth of answers from those on the forum.
Congratulations on your new boat. I know you are going to enjoy it. I bet she really moves with the 5.0's. Have fun :smt038
I have not opened it up yet. I will in time. Likely when Lisa is not onboard. :thumbsup:
So far I got it up to about 44 MPH for a short time then backed off.
Does the boat have bottom paint?
