    Hi, my name is Jon, and I have a boating problem........... :grin:

    Another recent transplant for the SRO forum, and glad to have found a new place to converse with other SeaRay owners and enthusiasts.

    I reside in central Iowa, but predominantly boat on the Mississippi River between Bellevue and the Port of Dubuque IA.

    I am currently on my 1st SeaRay, a 1997 185 Bowrider that I have had for 3 seasons now, and am loving every minute I get to spend on the water. I am a first time boat owner, but I have been boating off and on for 20 years or so. I know I have much to learn about boat repair and maintainance, and I am looking forward to continuing the learning journey I started at SRO.

    3116 Caterpillars name is Frank..and I've got a problem.........

    I left town for a couple of weeks and my favorite boating forum, at the time the best and most professionally run boating forum on the internet, was closed while I was gone. I've got over 20 years experience in owning Sea Rays over 40', both gas and diesel, and I do almost all of my own repair and maintenance work. I am close to the management at my local Sea Ray dealer/broker and get to run a lot of different boats.

    So now after about 2500 posts on SRO, I'm starting over. If you have something on your boat you don't understand or that is not working properly, I'll try to help you fix it.

    Frank, glad to see you over here.

    Just curious, are you at Treasure Island in PCB - the one with the restaurant built like a pirate ship next door, by any chance? I put in a computer system there circa 1999. Ted Davidson was the GM, if I remember correctly, and the owner was a guy up in Dothan, I think. It was a nice operation with good people running it.

    Gary....did you replace the frames instead of painting or re-powder coating the old ones. Bed with white marine silicone and be generous. are a good guesser. I've been a Treasure Island customer for about 20 years having bought both my sea Rays from them. The boat stays there in one of the private slips around back. Ted is still the general manager, and you are quite correct....there are some great folks working there. I may be a customer, but they are all good friends now. Unfortunately, Mr. Bill Nomberg passed away laast year and his daughter and son-in-law moved to PCB to run the family's businesses there. They own the Treasure Ship, the marina, Sea Ray dealership, 3 restaurants, a gift store and some rental stuff.

    If Gary bought new frames, can you let me know how much they were??
    I have at least one that's badly corroded and that I would like to pull and replace this winter. I have absolutely no idea what they might cost :huh:

    Kept losing this site till I finally bookmarked it on the office computer (where I spend too much time away from the boat) Fiance and I bought our first "real" boat (had a 135 Yamaha Exciter last summer fun but not really a boat!) this summer in early July - 185 Sport 2006 with (excuse me if I don't get this all correct I leave the real mechanical sounding stuff up to the Captain of the ship!) 135HP, no bells and whistles yet but I did just buy him a Fish Finder for his Birthday. We LOVE this boat and Searay and fully intend to upgrade to a cuddy cabin when we can afford it. We get out mostly on weekends and nights in July and August - still eeeking out a few trips as it gets cooler around here - planning on taking it in for winterization in about 2 weeks :smt009 really not happy at the thought.
    We "moor" her in our side yard in Noyac, near Sag Harbor and spend most of our time in and around Noyac Bay and Shelter Island Sound. Just learning the ropes and really appreciate the information we were able to get off the former site and now this one. Thanks to all the experts who post.

    Hello let's introduce myself to the other ClubSeaRay members.

    My name is Peter and I am boating now for 25 years.
    Bought the first SeaRay 16 years ago a '87 Seville 17 closed bow.
    Very nice boat with 130 Merc.
    We used it for waterskiing.
    After 3 years we bought a '90 220 overnighter with a 5,7 Merc.
    We used this boat also for weekend trips and liked it so much that 2 years later we bought a '90 270DA with twin 4,3 Merc stern drives.
    This boat was a litle underpowered and we had problems with the drives.
    So I bought a 330DA with 5,7 Merc and v drives.
    This was a very nice spacey boat and we had this boat for a long time.
    But we where looking this year for a little bigger and newer boat with diesels and we found a '03 360DA (we call it a 395DA in Europe) with Yanmar 306HP engines.
    The big advantage of this boat is that you can sit on a table, and that was not possible on the 330.

    I hope I don’t make a lot of grammatical mistakes.

    Hope we can learn a lot from each other and have fun!
