Straight goods. No foo-foo frilly bits or sparkly bling. Just like our boats

Welcome aboard.

Sundowner

Bought our Sundowner 30 in late June. So far its been a good experience. Brought her across Lake Michigan to Frankfort, down to Pentwater and home to Grand Haven. Now adding touches to make her our own . Looking forward to some great trips north.

Hello bharden!
There's a couple of other SD30's on the forum as you can see.

Personally, I love the lines of the sundowner. Teak decks, no- but many of them have fiberglass decks. Very nice boats. Congratulations!

Lil Toot is now tucked away for the winter but not forgotten. She is getting a deck bimini and pilot house window covers next week and we fixed the oven and autopilot before she went in the barn. Numerous other small problems came to surface in Aug. and Sept. but we took care of most of them.

Now learning how to caulk teak and practicing on the deck box covers. The aft deck will be first in the spring. Lots of differing theory's out their. I'll see what works and what doesn't.

Good to hear your first summer went well.

We're dragging our butts to put the winter snow shedding cover up on Badger. We keep bumping into Humpback Whales (eight in the last group) an hour from the marina, and the weather has been warm and dry with light-ish winds. Snow on the mountains around town and frost in the mornings are getting harder and harder to ignore though...

Hi,
I just bought my "Sundowner 30" Regency 30 Tug/Trawler last summer in Port Credit Ontario. She is now in my barn in upstate NY getting a face lift to her teak as well as upgrades to many of her systems.
I would love pictures of your Bimini when you get a chance bharden.
Thanks Steve

Another Sundowner 30 Tug!

Hi Everyone,

We fell in love with a Sundowner two summers ago, and moved from Sail to power. Slow Motion is a boat house queen! She still has her original Pathfinder going strong, and now has a shiny new transmission installed by the skipper himself after much troubleshooting, research, and study.

Great fun to read the posts from other Sundowner fans and thanks to MurrayM for the invitation to introduce myself.

Marie

A bit of an explanation about my user name...it seems I believe our Sundowner's name should be Angela but her name was Slow Motion when we purchased her and that name won.

Thanks everyone. We don't see many Sundowners out there, so it's nice to find all of you.

Finally got the canvas & window coverings. Guess they figured we were not going anywhere the last 6 months up here in Michigan. Back in the water.
