I'm beginning to think that Formula might just be a front for the Devil...

Ageed, I had a '26 w PC pipe platform, and if I were to do it again I'd do the same. I would be 50/50 on wether the styling should be referred to as dated, or unique? You don't mistake one for anything else, even at a distance, especially at speed! I've seen many of them in the last 10 years and am aware of the sometimes inconsistent finish work. My '32 is one of the best I ever saw come out of there, they did a very nice job on my boat (I ordered it) no goofy color combos, all done tastefully as I requested and have had zero build or finish work issues. That's saying alot as I'm a pretty fussy guy. I've been happy with the performance and finish I got for the $. I thought that bit about the backwards Formula catalog was pretty funny, I hope dockrocker caught that.

Oh yeah, I caught it

It's going to be single digits again here in Michigan and I'm going on 18 months of boatlessness... this is not a combination that encourages rational thought around boat show time.

18 months of boatlessness ? How much Paxil are you goin' through? If I wasn't making boat payments in January, I'd prolly do some foolish, fleeting, short term gratification, no lasting value stunt ...like a vacation to some tropical island paradise where it isn't -20 like it is here right now. . Naaa.... I'd be going up to the drive thru looking to make a boat payment every month with no existing boatloan, wishing the teller would just play along and mime processing my payment......just for a fix.

Ok, just had to check this “rational thought” stuff with my buddy Webster.

Rational:
“1 a: having reason or understanding.” No problem, I fully understand the meaning of a boat payment.
“1 b: relating to, based on, or agreeable to reason: REASONABLE.” Ask Mrs. Toys, I am being reasonable i.e. I’m taking her to the Miami show.
“2: relating to, consisting of, or being one or more rational numbers.” Well, if the bank agrees to it, it must be a rational number - right

Sorry bro, you keep putting them up and I'll keep knocking them down. Only 21 more days to Miami

Hey UT

What boat will you be sniffing around at the the boat show. Or should I say which boat is going to be the one that will blow all rational right out the window for you.

Unfortunately, the ol' bank account is rapidly shrinking my rationalization. Not a pretty sight, let me assure you.

Sorry Allen, this is a strategic boat show for me. Can't lay all my cards face up as there are many lurkers
