    Closed on our new to us 1998 290 Sundancer last Friday in Ft Lauderdale and moved her to her new home in Fort pierce. It took us 5 hrs to make the journey it got a little Choppy once we got to the ocean but she took it like a champ. She is now resting in causeway Cove Marina Which just opened it the last year, Really nice. Now it time to clean her up ( she has been sitting for about a year).

    Congrats Todd! Can’t wait to see all you do to her. One thing I regret is not taking enough before pics. Go through the boat and take tons of pictures. You will be glad to have them.

    Todd, don't let these guys scare you away. Sure, we all like to see pics of people using their boats and the waters they boat on, but more important is having those people as members.

    Nice boat! We have the same one. Head over to the "official 290" thread. There's a few of us over there

    We toyed wit upgrading this year but I think we'll do another year on her. It's a great boat, takes a good chop respectfully for its size, and lives a lot bigger than most 29's.

    We are thinking about naming her.... “Drippin Wet”.

    Actually dripping wet is the name of our last boat (Maxum 1994 2400 SCR) but sold it before we could name her.
