After running both a 2005 50' Egg harbor, and a 2006 58' Davis I am totally un-impressed with the build quality and rate it about even with an Ocean. The Davis ran good. But, the back of the engine room bulkhead was cracking across the ER ceiling from the ER door all of the way stbd, just like the 50' Egg. I guess the cockpit freezer is aft of it. The aeroquip hoses going to and from the motor were just strung anywhere and laying all over the bilge, not secured anywhere. The wiring was similar in some places.......it was just a very sloppily built boat, that would've taken only hours to do this stuff correctly. They also use these really ****** stainless looking seacocks that the handle (stem) breaks free of the ball. I was on a B+D on the other hand and it was a custom boat, that was built very nicely.
