I had a 94 w a 502... wish i never sold it. loved it. above 2 footers hold the F on. nice lake boat. That boat with a 525 would easily be 90+. mine ran 79 in a light chop.

How do they handle at those speeds?

They look like they would be great fun on rivers and small lakes, but a bit pricey for what they are.

75 and below on rails... trimmed out to the max was wild. I would take that boat against any other 24... just have to drive it...

Dkerns,Thanks for the pic,I think they have great lines....I am keeping my eye out for one but it has to be the right one.And also the more info on them and the history the better.Due to the fact its going to be a second boat for us and something I will keep for long time (I hope).After sell our sonic and now making the boss happy (If momma aint happy)we are now in the comfort zone.I need something to burn around in....

A buddy of mine has one. He bought it new in 1996, 454 Magnum runs 70. I've spent a lot of time in it, very solid ride. Well built, no stress cracks.

As mentioned above, it's a lake boat but works pretty well as long as its not too sloppy.

He's been talking of selling since his family has outgrown this boat. Might be a good one for you, fresh water only about 350 orig hrs. Colors are white with teal US-1 graphics.
