    Congratulations!.... Enjoy the new ride. We are in the process on moving from our 40 sundancer... Flying to Texas in the morning to look at a 47 sedan bridge... We are hoping we love the bridge. What was the deciding factors for you to go from a sundancer to a bridge boat.

    Hi Zach. We wanted the interior space to be more "in the open". It will be great to have an air conditioned helm (bridge). And with the full beam master, no more gymnastics to make the bed!!

    We traded OSD to Erwin Marine (our dealer in Chattanooga). We will miss her reliability and economy of operation with the CATs. I still am amazed that she was a 1.2 NMPG boat. We'll move the new one to Chattanooga for the summer hurricane season. Looking forward to the trip - about 1000 miles.

    Thanks Jeff - and thanks for your advice a couple of weeks ago. No problems with any of the issues we discussed. I just hope to keep following you in your boat selections!!!

    Since I am approaching retirement, we decided to name her "Reward" (the name on our 340).

    Mike - are you close to Tarpon Point? As I said to Robert (Shadow9999), I'd like to pick your brain on the local waters...
