Due to doubt trying to be put into this I need to make another comment. I guess it is circumstantial but : The original owner had service done to this boat September 2, 2004. It was supposedly totaled September 18, 2004. 16 days after last record of service. In July 2005 this guy goes to same dealer and orders a brand new 2006 Fountain 38 EC. Same boat but new. However the thing is, he bought with NO trade in. Fairly obvious. Now if he'd just answer the phone, I might know for sure.
