unmistakable . . . . . . 49 Ocean Express . . . . . coolest boat thats never been wet





thing that threw me was trying to figure out when you would have seen that thing. Its never been in the water and as far as i know has just sat since it was built several years ago. Its a shame to, great looking boat (before its current hideous paint job)

been there a couple of times, funny the first thing that tipped me off was the mis-fit trailer. That 49 is a great looking boat and i saw the plug years ago, Ross could have been ahead of the curve with that thing if they would have gotten one out in the water. It was before anyone was doing rudders and Tri-Max style drive to. The boat looked great when i saw it in all white gel then they put that hideous paint job on it (rub rail an all ) I have some pics of the plug somewhere and it was long enough ago that they are on actual film lol.

Very cool Dave !

I just sent Ocean Express a message and link to the 90+ photos I have of their factory. A lot of history there!

If they give me the go ahead, I will unlock the Gallery for the Plant Tour.
