As Henry Boyd suggested in another thread we should have a dedicated 280DA thread. I agree whole heartedly.:smt038 When I had my 240DA I enjoyed that ongoing thread and learned quite a bit about the boat from it. We already know that the 280 Sundancer is one of Sea Ray's finest and has few flaws. That said I'm sure I will learn much more from our fellow 280 owners, especially Doug (Presentation):thumbsup: and this thread will be there for the future 280 pilots to ask and learn from. So let's do our best to share and converse to keep this one going.
