My wife wanted me to buy a Formula bad, really bad! Not because it was a great boat, simply because it has those (what she calls) neat foot rests that you can adjust up and down... She wanted me to buy that boat so bad and not for any other reason!

Zero, my wife hates that it doesn't have any!

Now that we live on the Chesapeake and raft up with C-Spray we make darn good use of HIS cup holders and jello shots!

Only experience with a 353 Fastech was LC Poker Run a few years ago. Rode on a buddies of mine for the weekend and was quite impressed. It was also funny seeing the looks on everyones faces seeing three 20 something guys with four good looking 20 ~ girls driving that boat around Cumberland and through Harmon Creek.

Anyways, fit, finish and ride was great. Not my favorite design compared to other boats in that size range but a great boat regardless.

Those cupholders could be yours by this time next year.

Smarty and Kreed - here is the answer to your questions. We're ready for a stand-up shower and fullsize refrigerator. We have overnighted A LOT on the 382, and while it has aged gracefully, we have not...
