I plan on rebuilding the motor anyway. SO I am not really concerned with the engine. I just want to make sure the hull is sound. I have $10K to spend, so that limits me quite a bit. I would only offer them in the $5K range for the boat as it sits.

Definitely a Switzer. That hull is unmistakable. They look a lot better in the water than they do on the trailer.

Yes, but when I saw it, over a year ago, it had the motor all torn apart....looks in worse shape now.....cosmetically.

Default Former Switzer Gelcoater

Hi everyone! New to the forum, just kinda stumbled on it. I was a Gelcoater (painter) for Switzer (SCI) in the late 80's/early 90's. I LOVE the SS240, it was a GREAT boat! In fact I think it won am award for fastest production boat in the 24' class. Anyway one thing I remember is that there were issues during that period with the gelcoat. I thunk it was due to the mixers we were using to keep the 55 gal drums mixed (primarily the white). They were not going fast enough or something causing the gelcoat to stay a bit separated. This was nit womethig I was able to notice while spraying but I do rember it caused issues with some boats that went out. The problem was corrected but I think there were a few months that it was an issue. So maybe less than a dozen boats. The problem showed up as "bubbling" and "flaking" mostly in the chines where there tended to be more gel. I hope this helps and would love to hear more about the SS240! I have fond memories of building these bad boys! I also spent some time in other areas of the fresh water marine biz.
