    Hi I'm new to the site. I'm looking for the port curved windshield piece for a 1998 240 Sundancer. The sticker on the frame says Taylor Made T 31444. Does anyone have our know where I can find a used one? Too expensive new through Taylor. Thanks

    Don't know... maybe a salvage yard with hurricane damaged boats.

    Good luck and welcome to CSR!

    Mike. I desperately need a full windshield for a 1998 330 Sundancer. Mine was crushed in a tornado and the rest of the boat is great. Any ideas or sources?

    Mike, that is a great help! Thanks so much.
    Does anyone know the factory prop size (3 blade) for my 1998 330 SD with Twin V-drives, 7.4 L MPI Mercruisers? One prop is damaged and a diver couldn't get it off. Half to pull out. Trying to get the starboard side (right) factory prop and shaft diameter so I can have a prop ready. Would love to buy a used rebuilt one.
    I know they are LH and RH. Is the starboard prop Right Hand turn?
    Thanks so much!

    This is what we call "hijacking". You should start a new thread for your prop question.

    You could try 'facebook marketplace' for old sea ray 215s, 240s and 250s for sale. Also try craigslist for old boats of the same types. Then try to bargain just for the windshield piece. Also you could contact taylormade windshields. I contacted them and they told me to send the old frame and they would custom make the windshield for around $1300. That was about 2 years ago. You could also try a boat junkyard or a marine outlet or a sea ray reseller online like searay-parts.com, aka fpmarine.com. It took me almost 2 years to find an old 215 express cruiser that no longer ran but had a good windshield on it for the right price.

    The sea ray boats that have the same windshield and frames as your boat are:

    1995-1998 250 sundancer
    1995-1999 215 express cruiser
    1996-1999 240 sundancer

    2000-2001 215 express cruiser has the exact same glass as your boat but a different top frame called a 'continuous top frame'.

    It is possible that the 1999-2002 260 sundancer also has the same glass, but in these windshields have a different searay number and taylormade number. So this is unverified. You should contact taylormade windshileds for verification.

    Hope this helps...

    Did you read the last message that I posted? I don’t think that anyone has one just hanging around in their yard
