1988 Sea Ray 390 Express

Thoughts regarding the Flagship of my maritime fleet


A great boat is a like a member of the family.

(Real boaters know what I am talking about)


Although I don't like to raft-up often, as it's hard on the boats in our unprotected anchorages.... it certainly is fun when we can find a spot away from the waves and water-skiers.  Here we are squeezed in the middle...of course, with ample fenders deployed!

I have owned my 39' Sea Ray 390 Express since February, 1996.  This is my fifth Sea Ray and have progressively work up in size.  The 39' Express's are great boats.  The 13' 11" beam and the over 42' LOA makes for plenty of room and ease of rough water operation.  Twin 340 hp Merc's (454 big block Chevy's) coupled to Borg Warner Velvet Drives make for a great combination.  I certainly enjoy the 8.5 Kw Westerbeke genset, as there is ample power to operate both A/C units and almost all other 120v items at the same time!  The genset is somewhat over spec'd - not something most boats can boast of.

How about that teak!!! I do my best to keep it looking good.  All it takes is a whole lotta' elbow grease a few times per year!
Here is my typical view from the helm.  'Looks as though we are headed into Party Cove.
A view from farther aft.  Note: Goldstar 24nm radar, Robertson AP2000 Autopilot, Furuno Loran C, Garmin GPS color Map 220, and bad boy Icom M127 VHF  <<< Icom is the only way to go!
This picture was taken the same morning as the above helm shot.  All of us spent the night on the "hook" to wake to a beautiful morning.  Coffee, the smell of bacon and light breezes...Ahh.
Here is the view off the starboard quarter.  Tied up with a friend's 43' Wellcraft Portofino - twin 3208 Cat's!!  Sweet!! I'm on the hunt for a newer, larger boat.  How about a 450/460 Sea Ray or 43'+ Tiara...anyone, anyone, Bueler, Bueler?  

Boating is truly my #1 hobby, so I need to continue to upgrade....
