Thanks. Can't wait to get back on the water. I went to a couple of marinas over the weekend to check out boats and slips fees. Just seeing the water helps with the cabin fever. And if you are in Florida and are reading this message remember how good you have it

Still here in Pgh for now, but heading back. I know what you mean about the water. I live at my family's marina here and I get tortured by the water everyday that it is too cold to go boating. But will be back in the sunny warm weather soon.

Roll, I hope you don't think I was referring to your graphics,,, I was just saying that I have seen some hideous baja color and graphic schemes over the years..

Rod,

Nice looking boat, but I now that I've locked into a storage solution I need to be 24' or under LOA. From the model "257" I gather that this boat is longer than 24.

Boat can't be longer than 24'. Length is limited by the size of the boatel and forklift.

Thanks for all of the advice. At this point I think my search had narrowed and I would like to find a nice Formula 242LS. I looked at a 1989 Formula last weekend and hope to have it surveyed soon. Boat has a newer 454 magnum with low hours. Has the optional bolster seats that I am looking for. There are a number of these boats for sale on Traderonline...but the prices are much higher than NADA. Please send me a message if you know of one for sale on the east coast.
