    A 50' Sea Ray Sundancer, '93, a used well cared for and pics look very nice.

    Any recommendationson this Sea Ray, known problems?

    It's being shipped to a lake in north Texas, so it's dry now, anything that should be done?

    Survey came in good.

    It's a great boat.

    Was the survey for the engines and hull?

    How's the bottom paint? There is a story in PMY about a new paint system that actually rejects growth. I'm not sure if it is for salt water only though. It's called international intersleek system.

    Thanks, I told my son about the site, not sure he looks or has joined. I saw a pick of the bottom and it looked good. Nicely cared for.

    Thanks Yipster....I use a notebook and I have some loading posting issues. I should get the kids to fix it for me and put some pics in.

    That boat is the same. It really is a great liveabord with lots of room with two staterooms. Top side is pretty nice as well, a great party boat.

    One engine needs an overhaul but is operable, I believe this was addressed in the sale. The survey was for the boat and mechanicals and seem to have few issues, nothing with the hull or paint/gel coat is good.

    Just wondered if there were upcomming issues unique to the boat. It's going to fresh water, since it came from FA, I would assume that it has been in salt as well.
