I think T2x either had one or still has one. In either case he would be a wealth of info for you.

I owned two Switzers. A SK175 and a GL21. Both small lake boats. If you're looking at a big block powered hull chances are it's a 24' edition.
Personally, the 24's were not of great build quality.
Switzer boats are true high performance boats with great top end speeds.
The Switzer brothers were very innovative back in the early days. The Switzer Wing (T2X) and the Shooting Start are a perfect examples.
Check out this article.
