    Hi,
    bought my 4th Sea Ray in the end of July, and spent wonderful summer holiday with Sundancer 240 in eastern Gulf of Finland (our summer cottage is just few miles from Russian border).
    Its from 1998, vacu flush, fridge, cold water, Cabin heater etc. Engine has swapped, and now it have 2008 Mercruiser 5.0 (carb)+ Alpha1.
    Earlier i have had 160CB+ Merc XR2, 200CC+ 4,3 Merc, Pachanga 22+ 454 mag Merc.
    No big plans for winter time; canvas upgrading (from Great Lakes), led remote bow light and "goose neck" to the bow for easier access to islands.

    Welcome to CSR! That's a pretty sweet Challenger in your Photobucket. Looks like it just came off the showroom floor.

    Thx,
    Challenger come from Long Island, NY last fall and during last winter i restored it to my Son`s 18`th birthday present.
    His face was priceless when he got it last April ( He did not know anything about it, i did it in my friends garage)

    Welcome, I was in Russia by the boarder of Finland in 2001... I could see the boarder check point... I was told where I was used to part of Finland before the Russian took the territory. The area reminded my of where I live... lots of pine trees...

    Miikka, welcome to CSR. Nice looking 240 and from the looks of the waters you were on you're going to have a lot of fun with it.

    BTW, is Miikka the Finnish version of Michael?

    rcknecht: Correct. We lost lot of territory in main land and also few very beautiful islands in a Gulf of Finland to Russia in WW2.
    Gofirstclass: My name in school was Mike, when we have English.
