we just took a 2000 24 on consignment. This the the first one I have actually seen other than a picture. Looks like a solid boat and I like the hull design. I am Impressed with the quality to include the vinyn.

I was just there the other day. Seen his hew dash layout mold. He's gonna tweak these boats a little and they're gonna look even better. I was there when the truck dropped off all the molds. He's changing the bottom a little for more speed and stability.
Nabber's really a great place for all your fiberglass and gelcoat needs. He's done alot of the big HP offshore boats in the area. He did the bottom on our Fountain last winter, and he told me what I was looking to gain. He was on the money all the way. His pricing is really fair compared to the great quality of work that leaves his shop.
I've yet to hear anyone complain that Nabber overcharged them, or the quality of his work was unsatisfactory.

You might want to contact him about his work, especially if you're planning to buy that 24. He's got a sharp lookin dash layout that'll really update your new boat.

Here's Tom McNabber's phone # 1-815-941-1546.....Good luck on your new venture.

Any Pics??

The one I was looking at sold before I had all my "poop-in-a-group".

Since it's sold now, and I didn't want to post any pic's until/if it became mine (Bad Ju-Ju, ya' know).
This is the one I was looking at.

This guy coul tell you anything about the 24 Python. Yep it's Jim Clark. Jim was a different breed! I'll never forget when I built my 1st 28 and picked him up at his dock. He was so impressed. My boat was set up with port side throttles (race) and I let Jim run the boat WOT (He was drunk). He loved the boat and replied " I love the 2nd throttles , impossible to get a BUI with me throttling and you driving" RIP JIM!
