Just call them ahead of time and ask them
which day.Chuck gave us the tour of the
factory.There was about a dozen people
when I took the tour.I don't remember
the number right off hand.I will find it
if you need it.
Have a good time! Ed Stone

Sure would be nice to tour the Fla factory.
I toured the Mas factory in 1984 or 85 while at a dealer meeting. It was the cleanest boat factory I have ever toured. They had the commercial area off limits, must have been running some military stuff. I am sure that there are major production changes since then.

You'll want to double check, of course, but as of last year, tours were on Thursdays at 1:00 pm, reservations required. Here's a post with my story about my own visit. I would think things have changed a lot!

One thing about Florida--it is a helluva big state North-to-South, so if you are staying in the warmer regions in the south, that drive up to Edgewater can be quite a haul.

We were just down there and thinking of trying to visit, but from our southerly locale it would have made the tour event quite a long drive to do in one day and then drive back. Next year we're going to plan to fly-in a little farther north and then maybe we can catch the tour on the way back to the airport.

I have never been on the tour but I bet they have a list of forum members who are banned. They don't like bashers. Because of all the criticism in here I am having my Euro 1999 Outrage modified so it will be squared off in the back.
