I'm a little confused on the dress code being formal. Does that mean suit?
Or will a blazer, shirt tie and nice slacks suffice?

Car giving me fits.

I got a boat and trailer from a friend back in 2008. He got it back in 2004 and never registered it. I was at first just storing it for him on some land, now I have it behind my shop and wanted to get it going.
He's country and it's a flat boat and he just never saw the need to.
