A story, in pictures, about buying and owning a 24 foot powerboat.


After 7 years of owning a sailboat, I decided to sell it and get a powerboat.

I looked around at some used boats . . .

Chaparral, Cobalt, Slickcraft, Formula, Crownline . . . to name a few brands.

I decided to focus my search on a used Formula 242 (model years 1987-1992).
