Default Carrera speed boats - anyone familiar?

I'll also post this in the Carrera section...but I'm wondering if anyone is familiar with these boats, or (by random chance) happens to know THIS boat specifically.

http://houston.craigslist.org/boa/907534426.html

I'm looking at this 29' with twin 454's. Owner says it needs 1 gimbal boot replaced (probably the bearing/joint replaced as well).

Don't know this particular boat. But Carrera's are battle tanks. Takes power to move them but they are awesome. Talk to "Bearpaw" here on OSO he has one. Sweet deal if the hul check's out. Good Luck.
