That's gotta be a 37SS. We just went to an in-water show last weekend and drove one. That is just about the monthly note that was posted on the one we looked at. I'd love to know what he hit. That damage on the bow is awfully high up. That'll start your weekend off on the wrong foot.

Rumor has it that a seawall was involved.

And ya, I estimated it to be about 35', so a 37SS would be a reasonable assumption.

Thats not a DPX it is an Ocean Series XDP. The whole outer surface has a composite shell so that none of the metal is exposed. Pretty cool for bigger cruisers that sit in salt water all the time.

Precisely why the GPS manufacturers have to put that disclaimer on the screen as soon as you power it up. Basically states that the GPS is for reference only and not for navigation. Dumbarses!
