Default End of the Greg P/Formula saga....sort of.

Well I watched, waited, thought about it, waited some more, talked to my buddy Scott about it, and then waited some more. Then it was gone, then it was back (long story). Now it's ours!

After a few calls and some express mailing to California (thanks Jeffrey) we were ready to go on Saturday morning. The boat was delivered to the ramp, we fired it up, topped it off with fuel at Red Eyes (good omen,huh?) and then drove that bad boy across the Chesapeake Bay in 3-5 footers without even breaking a sweat.
I am truly impressed at how well this boat busts down the waves and just keeps on keeping on. And we even took eight people to lunch on Saturday too, a little tight, but what the heck

There are a few issues to contend with (see ya in Technical Q&A) but all in all I am totally stoked, this boat is gonna be great!

Looks like we are gonna have a lot of cat parts and a cat hull up for sale pretty soon, so stay tuned!

I thought of this very boat yesterday out on the lake. Typically the lake was a mess from cruiser chop and N.E. winds. Out of nowhere this Apache comes rumbling by flat and smooth and I though this is how that big Formula probably takes this kind of water. Good luck with the new ride.

Thanks Fred, I think you spoke with my partner Scott. He or I will give you a call tomorrow and see what's up. I have a couple of other issues for you too. Oh, and not to rub it in, but we actually had it in the water right after we bought it You need to try that some time

Keith I got some pics but they are too big(who'd of thought) I gotta squeeze them down a bit.
