    What color to buy?

    White, or White, or even White. All good choices.

    255 SSI

    You just answered your question. And, they are built so well, they last, and people just keep them. I was lucky to find our 235SSi. We are keeping it until we are done boating (3-5 years more I think)

    New owner Vortex VR2430 need assistance

    Warranty work has to go through a dealer. Keep the pressure on your dealer, it's his responsibility.
  7. Agree with Brick. Cosmetic only, and factory likely considers that normal wear and tear on a 4-1/2 year old boat. Easy fix with gel coat patch kit.

    If you like the outboard powered coupe style, the new Four Winns V355FX was just released to the public Wednesday at FLIBS. Looks nice.

    Actually SR was several months behind the Pursuit SC365i. The 370 Venture was first tested in early 2012, the Pursuit was tested in early 2011. I actually got a ride in the SC365i in July of 2011, as we are a supplier to S2(Tiara)/Pursuit. Great boat as well. The Crossover market has been around since the mid 2000's, and Formula was not even a player back then. Formula actually jumped on the band wagon after boats like the Ebbtide 2600 and Monterey 298SS were introduced. Not OB powered, but the crossover(cruiser/bowrider) has been around for a decade here in North America. Formula , as usual, has the snazziest version.

    See what you think about the 320 with outboard power... Interior is same as the sterndrive version. https://www.searay.com/page.aspx/pageid/160944/pmid/367731/Sundancer-320-OB.aspx
