Lol I've seen worse. The owner of the dealer I used to work for bought a unfinished 155ft 11million dollar project boat. They opened up a bottomless wo and spent another 10+mill finishing it. Then spread the debt around the company to every Dept and closed the wo. It killed every departments numbers for a good while. I don't think any managers got there bonuses ether due to the numbers being tanked.

Yeah I thought so too. But it's his company and boat to do with as he pleases. It's sad but i wasn't surprised. That's why I didn't think twice about leaving for another company when I had the opportunity.

Now that the company is "gone" how's he going to "support" that boat?

It's not gone. It's a pretty good size with over 2k employees and a fair amount of stores throughout FL.

The boat that was extended was probably a nice boat and all.....but whatever was above the bridge looked like some sort of home made, cubist tumor on an otherwise shapely boat. It was hideous !!!

Delfin,
Looks much like a Willard but is a SD or posibly even a planing hull. Most of the Devlin boats are. I’d miss the visor in front of the windshield. Wonder if the layout is the same as my Nomad.

This is my first post so thought I'd make it interesting (not sure my Tolly 34 qualifies though it is nice). This boat has been moored on the Multnomah Channel off the Columbia River for the last year or so. Looks like it's had a hard life. Not captured is the fact it seems to have a very narrow beam so I'm wondering if it used to be a patrol boat.

Maybe, but I'm not so sure the T-boats had that false stack behind the wheelhouse, it seems too cosmetic for the Army to pay for!

Murray,
And even a better question is which one is correct.

You’d get the same number, wouldn’t you?
