Default formula 419, anyone know of one close to border?

would like to see one in reality but don't feel like a 15 to 24 hours drive to see one.

if anyone knows of one within 3 or 5 hours drive from montreal area, could you please let me know? does not have to be for sale, just need to be ''close'' to home.

Then I'll see if I'm really shopping for this type of boat...

thanks

Hi Jeff. I had one from 1996 (new) thru till 2001 when I bought my first NT. That boat got sold to a guy in Belleville, ON and then ended up in Toronto. I have not seen it for a couple of years now and do not know where it is now. I put 650 hrs on it and can tell you pretty well what you want to know about that boat. I'm traveling today but let me know your questions.
Bob

what a picture!

I'm lazy ! withing a couple hours drive with the family could be ok, but my heart is not beating hard enough to take the plane. that is because I'm not sure wich one I want. if I can take a ride 3 or 4 model I have in mind, then set my mind, then I would travel...

tough year time wise, but I'll make it!

by the way GLH, your MTI pictures from this summer are all breathtaking... you really have a super nice looking boat when running this beast!

Not too many 419's built, as I understand it, so it might be hard to find near you. Might try the Formula forum as well.
