Boat Reviews By Owners

2004 -- 21' 6" SEA RAY

Model: 215 Weekender

Cockpit: Not much space for walking around. Any more than two people, you'd be tripping over each other especially if your fishing.

Cabin: Not for hanging out in. Go in, do you business (porta potty, sleep), and get out.

Construction: The hull is solidly built. The deck over the cabin is starting to reveal shallow surface cracks.

Handling: Wonders all over the place when idling through no wake zones. Takes a while to get on plane, in the meantime you're viewing sky. Porpoises really bad. The high sides helps keeping the waves from swamping the boat.

Engine Room: It's a heavy boat for it's size. The 5.0L is underpowered. Bought this boat new and was plaqued with fuel system problems. After an unsucessful launch, wouldn't start because it wasn't getting fuel (verified by removing the fuel line at the carb), I brought it back to the dealership (Browning Marine, VB, VA) to fix. However, it started for them and they wouldn't do anything unless it wasn't working. The boat continued to work on an off, that is dieing out in the Chesapeake Bay. I'd get it running again after tinkering with the fuel system. Since I could not get any dealership help, my troublshooting unveiled a piece of silicon was plugging the fuel shutoff valve. I should send Browning's my bill. I am not a satisfied customer.

General Comments: Family outtings, tubing, and fishing. The boat has a lot of wasted space from bow to stern. Sea Ray need's to do more homwork to maximize the use of space. They were also not too careful about the fine details, such as pin striping not straight. They need more quality control.
