Anyone for a formula project?

Formula on ebay

Could be an interesting project? 92mph sounds a bit ambitious to me though??

That boat has sat, untouched and unloved for as many years as I can remember at port solent. I think Port Solent tried, without success, to auction off/dispose of it a few times as the owner had gone awol. I also nicked the name for my old Formula.

"It has been in dry storage until last year" - Outdoors at port solent is hardly what you'd call dry storage.

Very odd that the owner has popped up again after all this time.
