Yes, Under Pressure was mine. Guy in Haddam bought it , so it will still be on the river. Thanks, it is a clean boat. Ended up buying a 40ft Hawk that will be at the same marina this year. Did you do anything to yours this winter?

24 Carrera's ran 60+ with stock 330/454 and a TRS so either the guy lied to you big time or there is something wrong with the setup.
Do you have pics of your boat? Would love to see it!
