it's amazing what some seller's attempt to pass off for a "10'. I drove (4)hours to look at a Formula that the owbner claimed to be a "10". It was a gorgeous boat, and ran great. there were a few items one would expect with a used boat. but, as I am inspecting the boat, I notice fiberglass dust in the bilge & a tape stripe at the water line. having owned Formula's before, I questioned him on the tape stripe. The owner came clean at that point. The boat had been "T-boned" on the St. Lawrence river. No photos of damage or reciepts. What a waste of time! Nicks, scrapes, a little upholstery work, a little dock rash maybe, but a demo derby princess. Give me a break!
