hey Andrew, we have met once or twice. Tell Nick he needs to upgrade now, I am sure he is itching to after riding with me a few weeks ago.

Great boat!

Congrats on your Formula! I've had one for for 7 years now and I wouldn't want anything else.

I have been looking at boats for about 6 months and I couldn't be happier with the boat I bought and the deal I got. It's not perfect but it was extremely well cared for. The guy I bought it from owned it for 10 years and put a lot of time and money into the boat. Anyway, I know all you guys care about are pics. So here is a link to a slideshow..

I would post the pics here but it's not allowing me too... Anyway, take a look at the pics and let me know what you think!

Andrew

Nice boat! It's hard to find performance boat 24's these days that have a nice windshield. It's great to be able to keep the elements off of you while blasting around in the bigger water.

Congrats!

Michael

Hey Phil! I don't know, Nick is pretty anti-go fast.. Although I don't really consider my 242 a go-fast boat... It's a good compromise though... I have a feeling that this boat is going to give us that itch and after having this it would be hard to not have some type of performance boat. And to think we considered getting a Sundancer

Thanks!! There is a lot of space on the boat! We don't have kids now, but I know that's not too far away...

Get a Sundancer, no, any kids you guys have will do just fine on any Formula you might have.

I love my 353.

Yeah.. And since we boat on the Chesapeake there is so much to explore and with any type of cruiser it just takes too long to get there..
