I finally got my 255 Formula in the water after a 2 1/2 year restoration and re-power. I get out every chance I get even if for an hour or two. So far i have only logged abot 7 hours but as I get things sorted out that number will increase dramatically.

Having a great season, logged approx 60 hrs so far. Along with running my local lake, I made a last minute desicion to tow the Cigarette out to LOTO for the Shootout and so glad I did. what a trip!!! Been running the heck outta the boat without any major issues (wore out 2 XR gear sets..) and glad to have taken the time to burn some fuel! Our little '83 Formula One has ran about 30 hrs so far. Fun to put around with the dog!

It's supposed to be pushing 90 today up here in Maine. A bunch of friends are taking the day off for a fun raft up. Most likely the last day of swimming up here!

I bought the 2013 boat ramp sticker (still in envelope) and the registration got renewed but never got put on the boat (still in envelope also). Filled the boat with gas back around Memorial day had intentions for Labor Day but neighbors invited for a bbq and boat never got wet.......Nice part about 4 stroke Yamaha power is I know it will start when I get to the ramp! I have charged the battery a few times just to keep it juiced up......

I did go to the Bahamas on a CC w/900 HP hanging off the back which was great!
The real shame is that come January you don't get to go ice fishing

I keep my boat in storage 2hrs away. I have used it a fair amount this year. Not sure of hours but probably 15-20. I was thinking of bringing it up to a lake up here, but I really love the ocean! =/
