    Hi Mr. Colt,

    I have a 1998 Sundancer 250 with all of the books and manuals. I can see about digitizing them and make them available to our group. It’s a great story how I acquired this boat so I’ll post it later. It’s great to be among other 250’s.

    Go to Searay.com and click on the "Owners Resources" and you should find the digital collections. You should be able to find your year and model in there.

    Much appreciate the assistance. I did try over there though and for some reason they don't have the 1997 250 Sundancer. Just unlucky I guess. :)

    That's really weird? You might try a year on either side because they don't change them every year. Most of the 86 - 89 Rays are very similar. At least you'd have something very similar.

    So while still doing some repair work on my new 1997 sundancer 250 I started to work on repairing the screens and gaskets on the portlights. I read a bunch of posts on here and ordered P100-04-RETRO for my replacement parts. However after taking out the old gasket and screen the new gasket doesn't fit. It fits in the frame just fine but sticks out too far and I cant close the window... any thoughts on this one? Do I have the wrong part?

    Just finished making a cockpit cover for my dancer. I'm in the process of making a Bimini cover as well. Here is the 99% finished product. F1.jpg F2.jpg

    What is the last yr SeaRay 250 DA had a bow rail that encompassed a walk around ledge? (I really don't like the newer designs where the only way to access the bow is through the windshield). I've heard people say that Sea Ray experienced a decrease in quality, if so, what years did it happen in your opinion?

    I have a 98 250 and mine leak too. I have needed to replace them for 3 years now but havent found anyone to do it. I wont do it myself. I removed and re-sealed the top square porthole, installed new arms (previous broke) but the damn thing leaks. So I suck at that kind of work and will not attempt the portlights. My post has been useless I know. Have you completed the job?

    My '98 has the rail and ledge. The ledge is so narrow, it's barely as wide as my foot so trying to walk along that is like just asking to fall off the boat. I always use the windshield to get to the bow and anchor.

    Anyone in the St. Pete, FL area know where I could get portlights re-bedded? Preferably a mobile mechanic, not a Sea ray dealership.
