My Sea Ray SD240 is well maintained and always clean and tidy. The 6.2L Mercruiser with Bravo III powers the boat smoothly on the lake. I take pride in my boat and have for over 18 years. The boat is stored on an Eagle Brand customer trailer so I am able to enjoy lakes other than Lake Norman.
I allow people to bring anything on the boat and have a few rules:
(1) nothing that produces flame (lighters, matches, no smoking basically),
(2) the operator of the boat remains sober,
(3) keep the crew safe and the boat clean. As far as where to go on the water the one rule is to stay in deep water so the propeller and outdrive are not damaged and everyone onboard remains safe.
