Don't have any experience with a 292 but I've heard good things, particularly with that motor set-up. I have an older 311-SR1 and it is GREAT in rough water. It's an 89' and still has no rattles. The quality is excellent and it holds it's value as well as any boat made. I believe that Formula has won more Powerboat magazine "awards for excellence" than any other brand. I like mine. But I would love a 38 TOP GUN...

TOP notch quality, customer service second to NONE, teh best fit and finish of any large scale production boat. It does take alot of ponies to make them go fast though. You will NOT be disappointed.

Good luck.

I'm on my third and loved all three. I almost pulled the trigger on a new 292 at the boat show in Miami this year, then a deal came up that I liked better. Love that 292, and the Scorps make it the shizinits!

Should be a great boat for you. They hold their value and the fit and finish is as good as any. The ride should be a little more solid then your Baja as it will be a heavier boat.

I raced the 35' fast tech been in some very rough race condition (8' to 10' seas) but always felt like I had a very solid boat under me. Mr. Porter and company in my opinion are one of the best. Jo
