Default Big formula boat in field, south Chacago???

I was on my way to school (lexus training facility in Naperville, Il) monday afternoon and happened to look out to the right and saw a big formula powerboat sitting out in a field with a old torn blue tarp covering half the cockpit....It was the traditional colors white/black. It had to been at least 30'. Did notice it had three cabin windows on either side. It had tall grass under it and looks like it hasn't moved in years, it was south of Chacago, I think I was still on 65N but could be mistaken, Just curous if anyone has noticed this boat? What a waste!!

The grammatical and spelling errors as well as the nonspecific content contained within this thread make my head hurt.

It's been there at least 4 years. I believe it did get a new tarp last winter, but it didn't last to long. I thought it looked like an old 30' Baja with the arch it has. It's just south of the 61st Ave exit on I65. Actually, that's Gary , Ind.
