SunRunners the One
Hello all - Daves the name, and another new member
Happened to stubble across the site while internet searching all things re SunRunner Boats. My 1984 SunDance 190 Bowrider (Merc 140 I/O ) was purchased new here in Canada in1984 and even though it has been lovingly looked after for the past 34 years, it was time to do some sprucing up. Currently in my shop and doing some upholstery work, installing a new stereo, bilge pump and float switch, sanding and re-staining the swim platform and some of the teak trim, a complete hull clean/compound buff and polish. New canvas was installed 4 seasons ago. This is only one of many boats I have owned over the years but the best one and best boat line built in it's class. Still going strong; It has never seen any hull work or engine work except for a new starter & distributor. The perfect family boat for the cottage lake (Balsam).
As SunRunner has long been gone as a manufacturer we see fewer of them around the Trent Severn Waterway where I boat.
I would really like hearing from those who still cherish their SunRunner and have any history on the company, what happened to it, and did they continue on as something else.
Have read a lot of great posts since joining and look forward to more; for us living above the 49th, the ice will be gone soon and the fun on the water shall resume. Happy boating. Dave (SumRFun)
