Just became a first time Sea Ray owner this past weekend and enjoying it after a long hiatus from boating. Prior boat many years ago was a 19 ft, 1985 American Skier so this is a bit new to me. The new boat is a 2005 280DA with twin 4.3's and is definitely more boat than what I've dealt with in the past. Spent the past weekend on a short offshore trip and about an hour learning how to park it. Have enjoyed lurking on this forum in the past and looking forward to becoming an active member now!
