nothing wrong with that boat Troutly. That interior kicks a$$.

With a pair of 525's, what else does a man need?

I like the 2005 painted dash's.

I saw a 382 up close this Summer with the new paint scheme and painted dash, looked really nice.

not sure where formula is headed witht he graphics either. they have always been considered the "gentlemen's" offshore or sport boat, mostly because of the windshield and the quiet exhaust...but now it looks like they're trying to attract the Cigarette or Outerlimits customer with the new paint schemes. personally, i think they should stick to the more conservative designs - they just suit the lines and style of the boat better.

Have been following this thread with interest,and hesitated to post,since most know I'm a little prejudiced But I don't see what the complaint is. A couple of new designs were posted that some of you don't like, but there are a bunch of other designs available,as well as solid white that can be easily ordered. Any manufacturer has designs that some love and some hate. I could post some really ugly(to me) designs from lots of builders, or a lot of really beautiful(to me) designs from the same builders and get similar comments. But so what? If you don't like a design,buy something else,or buy white and have it done to your tastes. I have on order a new 353 with 600's in the new Lazer graphics (which I personally like),but hey, the boat is for sale. If someone wants to buy it and wants a different design it's not too late to change it. Like someone once said"You pays yo money and you takes yo choice"Robert
