    Hi
    I'm a UK citizen living in Florida for 4/5 months a year. In March of this year I purchased a 1999/2000 400 Sundancer and had just a month using her before returning home. She's moored in a bay on the Intracoastal in Delray Beach outside our condo. Looking forward to returning to Florida in December and to acquainting myself further with this boat. A couple of questions: where are the fill-in cushions for the mid-cabin kept and also for the settee in the saloon to make both fit for sleeping? Also, where can I purchase fitted sun pads for the front fore deck?
    Regards
    Britman

    I had mine made as they didn't come with the boat. The fill in cushions are not expensive to get made. Sun pads wasn't cheap. You should find a couple local canvas shop and get a couple of quotes.

    Hello Britman, where, what city do you live in in Blighty? Do you recognize my photograph? I love my Sea Ray and want to spend as much time on her as possible. It's off to Orlando Tuesday, very bleak over this side of the pond today.

    Hi Razzle Dazzle
    We live in Sunningdale, near Ascot and keep a Broom on the Thames in Reading that we spend time on all through the summer. We spend 4/5 months in South Florida in the winter (have just arrived) where we keep our Sea Ray 400 on the Intracoastal, that we love.
    Enjoy Orlando, very much warmer than UK!

    The fill-in cushion for the solon couch should be in the starboard master stateroom closet stowed next to the drawer cabinet.
    The fill-in cushion for the aft stateroom should be in the port cabinet in that area.
    There should also be a cushion and short post that makes the cockpit table into a sun pad.

    I really wish the fill-in cushions for the saloon couch and aft stateroom were on our boat together with the cushion and short post that makes the cockpit table into a sun pad but, sadly, they are nowhere to be seen! Not the first time I've heard they've been stored in a garage never to return to the boat. Oh, well the couch fill-in probably would never have been used (6 too many to sleep on our boat) and I'll just have to have a fill-in for the aft stateroom made to fit for the few times I might need it.

    Thanks, anyway, for your help much appreciated.

    The photograph on my page is glorious Devon near Barnstable. I will be keeping my boat in Daytona Beach's Halifax River Marina. A very safe place during hurricane season. It survived Matthew and Irma, miraculously. I leave tomorrow morning for Orlando so I can avoid another airport. The transporter is running a day late so far but that is probably just as well as it gives us a bit of time to rest up before tackling all the necessary work getting settled in her new home. We live in Bristol. About 15 minutes from Bath. I have family in Florida and near Mobile Alabama.
