  1. What year is your 270 SIG? We have the simulated wood flooring option since we wanted longevity and easy maintenance.
  2. Someone got a great boat! Shows the difference from an owner who values their boat compared to the one that I had a survey done and then walked away form the deal.
  3. I think I understand what AOC is saying and it would make sense to take a reading from inside the hull (if accessible) since no barrier coat is applied there and you should get a true reading. It seems that Chap is still using AOC's Hydropel Resins I'm wondering if the current builds give false readings as well....
  4. I'm hoping that they've considerably improved their build quality since this is totally unacceptable.
  5. Hey Drew, Didn't mean to bring anything down on you (as evidenced by my smiley emoticon) and it seems that it got lost in translation by some members posting here. Hope your current restoration project goes smoothly and quickly and you'll be back on the water in less time than you think. I'm sure you'll do a great job and wish you many happy and safe travels with your new boat! BR, P
  6. Probably Brunswick buying SR in 1986 had a detrimental effect on the build quality. The fact that your 1988 model was solid could be that it took some time for Brunswick to institute their business model to the rest of their stable.
  7. Drew, isn't it time you moved off the Chap forum and onto the SR forum? Hoping to provide an initial quality overview when we take delivery in the next week or so.
  8. I guess it depends on the surveyor and your own mechanical ability and knowledge.. The 700 deer I spent for the survey of a 34' sailboat not only gave me a good education but also saved me from making an 80000 deer mistake.
  9. Sorry, I couldn't resist: A penguin is having car trouble, so he stops by a mechanic's shop for some repairs. He tells him he will need about an hour to find out what's wrong. The penguin walks downtown and it's a hot day, so he stops to get some ice cream. He doesn't have any arms to eat the ice cream with, so he just sticks his beak right into it. The penguin returns to the shop and the mechanic says "It looks like you blew a seal." The penguin replies "Nah man, it's just ice cream."
  10. Sweet Spot is what you can afford and whether you're willing to spend it. As for me, my OCD prevents me from buying used boats/cars. So, I purchase the nicest, finest vehicles I can afford and are very happy with my decisions. These items are not investments and depreciation never enters the conversation. That's the Sweet Spot!
  11. I'm not familiar with the Sunesta but, you can use a smaller/lighter weight Fortress/Guardian anchor compared to the same holding power as a standard Danforth anchor.
  12. Did you have a survey performed by an independent marine surveyor?
  13. After your comment I did a little more research and learned that bleach has a detrimental effect on plastic and rubber including pump seals and the tank itself. Best advice was to use your water on a regular basis, don't let it sit and you shouldn't have to add anything to the tank.
  14. Thank you! You just saved me from making my first mistake!
