I think cuda buys boats like I buy cars!

I went with someone to take a look at this boat. Here is the link to the thread in the Formula section that points you to some more close up pictures

The boat is rougher then as described. It is bottom painted (scraped off easy with my finger) would need a whole new sun pad, and a serious wetsanding and probably cleared over to get the hull back.

If you have a couple of 383's hanging around and have some time I think the boat would be a Great project.

Very possible. I didn't start selling new Formulas 'til '87, so I don't know what they called twins in '85.
