Hello to all, and a Happy New Year! I've been lurking around for a few weeks and really appreicate the techincal advice that everyone provides. I purchased a 2001 280 Sundancer last year with twins, genset, radar and gps. Previous boat was a 87 Wellcraft Nova, which was alot of fun, but I was informed the first mate "needed a real bathroom". :huh: I am amazed at all the things to keep track of, and of course all those projects. I am hoping to get help with a number of things, and of course provide advice when I can. We are located in Mount Vernon, VA and enjoy boating along the Potomac River. I am hoping to get out to the Chesapeake bay this year!
