    Re: Sunrunner Owners

    I have a 1981 20ft Cuddy Cabin, but beyond that, I have no idea as to what the model is, nor do I know anything about the engine, drive or prop, other than it's a V6 OMC. I recently inherited it.... but I have had to replace the bellows around the drive, and both the trim and tilt motor.

      I'm a recent owner of a 1986 220SB which I am refurbishing. Most of the work needed is cosmetic but I do need the replace the engine. The present 350 Mercruiser is cracked. I am looking at a 305 Mercruiser that the marina mechanic has. We'll check it out next week and see if I want to install it. The boat is now tarped for the winter here on Long Island NY but I plan on working on it over the next 6 months. I hope to have it ready for next season. Happy boating. Hy

        I have the little sunrunner. It is a 1983 openbow 16.5 footer. It has a 120 mercruiser in it. Nice boat. I live in the city they were made in(spokane) and met a guy that worked for them before they went out of business.

          Re: Sunrunner Owners

          HI...how are you?? I just have a question I am hoping to get an answer to. I have an 87 sunrunner we purchased last year that we are currently fixing for the summer. It is running great, but the wiring has issues....specifically the thermal circuit breakers. Unfortunately the four breakers are so old that I can't find the amperage stickers on them. I was wondering if anyone knows what amperage I need for the horn, Lights(transom/running light combo), bilge and fan. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I called west marine and stopped at a few marine stores, but all are unsure...most guess around 10. Does that sound right?? Thanks...

            Re: Sunrunner Owners

            Are they actually circuit breakers or are they fuses? Mine are all fuses except for the big breaker on the engine. I would think 10amp is about right.

              I recent purchased a 1989 175vb. I almost passed this over, seeing that sun runner was only in business for a limited time. A bit more investigating into what sun runner was made me jump on this deal. It is currently a work in progress. Does anybody know where I can get a replacement gauge panel, or do I need to buy new gauges and try to figure out the wiring (somebody had their fingers in there before I bought it, making it much easier to just buy a new panel and plug it in).

                Hi all,
                Just purchased a 1988 SunRunner,all 21 feet with 350 Chevy.
                A Mercruiser Alpha 1 drive pushes it nicely.
                She has white background replacement gauges which are easy to read.
                Fresh paint and new interior.
                Waiting to win the lottery to fill her up !
                Have A Great Day

                  Medic: Exact replacement dash panels are just about impossible to find. You'll have to make a new one. Replacing the guages isn't that complicated if you follow the wiring diagrams. You need a factory service manual for your engine; it will have the dash wiring diagram in it. You can use the generic diagram found elsewhere on this site. Let me know if there's any specific info I can give you. Check the Sunrunner web site for more info. luck. Hy

                      Hi. Welcome to the site and to SunRunners. I replied to your PM when I saw it the other day. Anyway, you're way ahead of me in use of the boat. I'm looking forward to next season. I've just replaced the engine in mine and then proceeded to break the transom mounting plate. Now I've had to unbolt and disconnect the engine. I need to lift it, move it forward about a foot, and then remove the transom plate to replace it with a used one. Then I get to re-assemble everything in time to winterize it. I live on Long Island and have the boat out in Moriches, on the south shore. Who knows, maybe next season I'll get real adventurous and take her around to Manhattan. My daughter and son-in-law have a 34' Cruisers up in New Rochelle and have gone around the Statue of Liberty a few times now. Maybe I'll join them. Safe boating. Hy

                          Boy, you really know how to hurt a guy! Seriously, I'm jealous. It's gorgeous out and I can't go boating. In a couple of hours I have to go to work. I teach part-time at Suffolk County Community College. I love doing it, but on a day like today, I'd love to be on the water. Oh well, there's always next season. Safe boating. Hy

                            I've owned my 1984 Sunrunner 245 for about 9 years now. Great old boat. We've reupholstered the interior, plus carpet. Has the 350 GM engine. Full camper type enclosure. Runs well. It took a bit of damage from IKE but I'll have her back in the slip before long. Working on the bottom job now. Always something to do.
                            At least I don't have to put it up for the winter donw here in Conroe, Texas.
                            If anyone has suggestions for the optimum prop for a boat this size, I am interested in opinions. It has a 15.25 x 17 3 blade aluminum, but I am always looking for a bit more performance.

                              i just filled the gas tank yesterday, three trips to the gas statiion with three 5 gal jugs, 164 gas was too much to pass up. and with the o/b down and the motor winterize easier to lug an pour gas off the step ladder.
