I have never ridden in either boat.
However I know people that own both and they each like their boat.
There are a LOT of 24's out there. I think that speakes volumes for a boat that has not been built in several years now. They seem to hold up well from what I have seen.
There is a REALLY nice one this year on Lake Norman that looks brand new. From the grin on the owners face when I met him I would say he is very happy.
Coming on a forum like this or others and asking this type of question always ends up like this. Boaters are passionate about their boats. I would have one of each if I could!
No one can make the decision for you. Drive them both, and pick the one you like best. I'm sure you will be welcomed in either family you choose!
