I've been TRYING to get it on a dealers lot for exposure, but no one was interested. Talked with Offshore Perf last weekend, so maybe something will come of that.

I feel your pain Greg. Have had trouble with both of my boats. Especially my "new" one.
Sucks to pay for two docks and have both boats on land.

Quit spitting out those carpet-crawlers and go buy a boat.

Dockrocker, that's what my CFO said after our second...now third... But I stressed the importance of needing a boat--a bigger boat with a nice cabin, higher freeboard and two engines in case one breaks down... Great family fun! It worked!!

She still questions whether it's worth it....

Boats are always broken. That's just the way it is. Especially performance boats.
That is a great deal on that Formula Greg.... I'll put the word out to anyone looking for something like that. Sure seems like alot for the $$.
Good luck...
