Hopefully these links work.

Any opinions are appreciated. Does anyone know the history of this boat? What do you think a good price for this boat would be? I'm looking for a deal. It has low hours but it is a '99.

I like the paint scheme and it has the extension boxes and 500EFIs and low hours. It does not have the center cushions for the U shaped lounge in the cabin you find on newer 382s. But, I think I could make some or find some.

This would be a weekender for me, the wife and a baby. I sold my 357 Formula when the wife got pregant. I'm missing boating and summer is upin us. I don't think I can resist the urge to buy a boat soon.

Thanks for all your opinions. OSO rules.

Looks like a really clean 382. I love my 382. Good Luck!

Nah, I'm still living it's most likely original meaning Friends With Benefits. But your new description goes hand in hand...no...hand on breast...yeah that's it!!

We wouldn't want Brent to struggle for too long with it

FWB - that's funny. Does it apply only to Formulas?

Also, how about some opinions on a good price for this one? I'm having trouble deciding if this is the boat for me.

Thanks.
