Default Formula 242ss new to me

So just picked up my first Formula. I have loved them for as long as I can remember. Is there abetter option for the cheap looking plastic gas fill. My other boat has a polished stainless fill much nicer. A few cosmetic issues as far as I can tell, then be ready for water.

Welcome to the club! We love ours, for a 24’ boat they are a wave crusher. 1’-2’ waves is the Sweet spot. 😎

The 242 doesn’t have stainless fuel fill? Post some details about it and how you got it,seems like all these old birds got a story.

Sounds like a good plan. I got it from an auction. Seems it was someones pride and joy, trailer and boat are paint matched. The seats are usable, but the wood is kinda rough on a few pieces.
