Yes....we know you have much envy Tanko......someday you'll have have a big-boy big-power boat. In the mean time, I'm glad you like your billboard sticker Cigarette. Consider it like a "trainer" for when you get the real thing!

Jeeees, Nort, I give one Formula a compliment and you almost have a corinary (at your age that's one of the things you need to worry about).

Like I've said before. Don't hate because you've purchased three boats and still can't get it right. If you want a real boat, call the number in my signature line.

Bern - Those pics don't do justice for how nice that boat is.
Simple and clean silver and white with the Shelby-looking stripes down the center. Most Formula paint jobs are overdone, or just plain don't suit the lines of the boat.

I'm not even going there with Nort and Tank...'tis funny tough.
