I was at a marina where they had just finished putting in the 2nd motor in 1 year. the mechanic said it was because the boat sat way to low in the water, he also said it was not the first 24 F. that he has worked on for the same thing.
I myself like the boat, But just look real good to see if its ever been swamped or partially submerged.

22 degree hull + sitdown boat = ass hurting at the end of the day.

Sounds like lake Wawasee to me. If so that would be a great boat for that lake. Probably not to bad on the Big pond if there is a south wind. If you like to have something different that would fit the bill. I have only seen 1 24 fountain on Lake Michigan and it looked real small, but definately cool.
