    We don't have our own thread like all the other losers... So now we do. Let's try and collect all the 480 DB specific posts over the last few years and put links here for them... and we can bash all those low-life Sundancer owners...

    And post pictures of the best boat Sea Ray ever designed...

    Here's some pictures mistercomputerman (mister shiny boat) sent me of the most awesome 480 DB in the world.

    Cruising on the manly Chesapeake:

    Always able to find a cold beer and some crabcakes:

    [​IMG]

    Mine even came with some optional black sport stripes on the bow:

    Heading out at o-dark-thirty:

    Collecting sea grass and destroying a water pump in the C&D canal:

    [​IMG]

    And off the Jersey coast in the North Atlantic kicking up some serious wake:

    OK... I just wanted to post these awesome pictures... but we do need a thread dedicated to this most wonderful beast.

    There's a coal-fired steam plant about a 1/4 mile from my boat... ridiculous.

    ouch...and thats typical after a few days away I assume?

    if all my "friends" that have taken pics the last 3-4 weeks would ever give me some files I'd post some up n' running. right now i have nothing--other than pics of new comforters, towels, rugs and--yes, pillows. lots of pillows.

    I don't think so because the boat would go backward.

    How do you guys like the DB's with the helm at the back of the bridge? I don't think I would like that. I'm not very tall (ok, very short) and it looks like I'd have to stand on the seat to drive - again.

    I can see the bow and anchor sitting down in the captain's chair. I prefer the forward seating for two reasons... People are sitting in front of me so I can be part of the conversation going on and I can see the back of the boat and cockpit -> great for docking and fishing.

    I thought those of us who were fortunate enough to have more girth and length would not need a seperate thread to flaunt it. I figured we could just quietly sit back and bask in our hugeness. Gary has now let the cat out of the bag.
