Hey Dude-u-rock,

I really like the boat you already have!

Chris


BTW ... I think that should be your new OSO screen name. Nice boat, nice bike (by your avatar), two adorable "Smokecraft" daughters, and also a good guy to talk to!

Thanks Dog. I love the boat I have, but if I can find a newer one I would really like to make the change. The more I look, the more I do see the value in my boat! We're still on for Put-In! I already got the beers on ice!

Dude-U-Rock has a ring, but actually it's named after my two Boxer Dogs, Duke and Rocky!

I personally love the Lazer graphics,have ordered it on my demo 353 with 600's,but you all know I'm prejudiced The 05 Fastech brochure has a nice photo inside the foldout front cover,shows the Lazer 382 in the water in the Bahamas,engineer Pat Laux behind the wheel with a beautiful lady on the bow,beautiful shot of this actual boat,wish it was on the Formula website.

So exactly where do they find these ladies (unlikely in the cornfields of Decatur) and where do I sign up for the photoshoot in the Bahamas? Heard this is a week of really hard work toting jet fuel for the photo helo all across the island, washing the boats, toting more jet fuel, and washing boats the again. Might be tuff duty, but I'd be willing take one for the team!

Tha lazer is on the Formula website. Open their main page and then click on Fastech. I think that's the one you're referring to. In the brochure that boat looks a mile long!

Actually, those ladies are from Decatur, or at least they used to be. Formula always used family for their photo shoots. Most of the men were Porters except for those that married Porter girls. The woman were the wives and girlfriends. Now, I don't know if they still do that exclusively with family but, I know they used to.

Those Porter boys do pretty well landing lovely ladies, eh? Amazing what owning a successful boat company will do because those dudes ain't exactly handsome!!!!

There's a previous thread that addressed how the boats attracted the women. Had something to do with money!

I too have appreciated the Porter's ladies for a few years now.

Dog,
Sorry to hear about about Abigail. Had dogs my whole life growing up. Always like part of the family...just as hard to see them go. Sad to say, but we always "replaced" them with other dogs to make the pain go away! Seemed to work. I'm gonna be hurt when the boxers go. They have more personality and loyalty than any other dog I ever had.
