Unhappy What if I sold the Formula...

I've been considering selling my 1990 Formula 292 SR 1 in favor of a more family friendly boat. The problem is that I love my Formula but my wife keeps saying that there is not much cockpit space to have non-boat owning couples and/or families to go with us. So, reluctantly, I've done some light searching on the net and found a 1991 Sea Ray 310 Sunsport w/twin 454 mags, Sea Ray style thru hull exhaust, heat/ac etc.

Have any of ya'll been on one of these? How do they perform? Part of me just wants to keep the Formula I have; it just runs excellent and very reliable.
It seems like the best mix of cruiser and performance style of boat. Any suggestions or comments?

One idea would be the Formula 330 sun sport. Will still run 60 with 454 mags/bravo three. Has the look of a formula sr1 but the seating of a crusier. And the best this is it is still a formula.

Im the exact opposite. Im trying to sell my Pantera becasue there is too much cockpit space. All i need is 4 bolsters to take few girls out. Although the sink and extra space is great, ive decided that i dont need it for the type of boating that i want to be doing. The space is great to take 6 people to shooters to lunch, which is what my dad likes to do, but i dont need that now.
IF your interested i'll give ya a nice deal.

on a side note.
what about a bigger center console if your looking for something else with a lot of room. I also have a 28 century (not selling) that can hold a ton of people. Southern Boating this month has a center console buyers guide. A lto of them are pretty fast and have decent cuddy cabins. Its worth checking out.

Alright ya'll, it's not like that! Have ya'll seen the 310 Sunsport? It's a pretty sweet lookin' boat. It's actually the model boat I almost bought instead of the Formula I have but they (at the time) were out of my price range. If I was computer savy enough, I'd post a pic or two. From a couple of people, I've heard these boats will run around 60+ MPH. The cool thing is that it's got a 9'6" beam with a wraparound back seat (to fit all of the non-boaters, a consideration when you have 3 kids who want to bring their friends), radar arch and thru hull exhaust.

I guess I'm just getting older...

It sounds like a nice boat and you seem to be set on it. If its what you want, then get it.
Sea ray builds a great boat. Once of my dads friends has one thats about 15 yrs old and still in great condition.
Good luck with it.

so does anyone else want my pantera?

See, I was afraid of being kicked of the Forums by owning a Sea Ray!! If that's the case, I should definately reconsider!

Truth of the matter is that my wife really could give a damn what kind of boat I own! I was hoping she may get into boating a little more if the accomodations were a little better Even with the Sea Ray, she still would probably give a damn !!
