Not that my opinion matters, ( because I will never and even if I did have the money EVER own one ) but from what I have seen, for the amount of money O.L's cost the quality is just not there...

I don't see how you can see print thru in a foamcored boat,skater uses balsa core on some of there boats that cause that. as far as wavy hullsides there is alot of paint on these boats that are cleared and reflection could be the answer. I looked at numerous ones at the factory with no paint and the work is flawless.
This one was pretty wavey down the side and I believe the 42 Fire and Ice also .... Again not that I don't love these boats .... just stating the facts .
BTW .... where is this boat now ????

chris k,
I can't sea your point,i've owned two and run the boat. any boat with hours on it and the condition everybody runs them in,they take a beating. even a 4 million dollar viking or any boat takes abuse on the water. all boats are priced high from cigarete to foutain to nor-tech. you tell me foutain has quality. re-read some threads on nightmare stories. if something wrong mike will fix it.
leopajm,
If a boat is older or has been in the sun alot there may be shrinkage and waves may appear on ALL boats. when they come from the factory there right. How people take care of boats is a issue to.
the expoxy is baked and that won't happen.

I saw two bubbles on the 37 near the rub rail.
What could that have been?
