What year is the Jaws you want to buy. I own a 1980 24 ft. Jaws Super Sport with a Volve 280 Drive. "Old School Boat", 30 years old and runs great.

Thumbs up

TRS drive for that setup...mild power should be bullet proof. TRS is fine for up to 500HP-550HP. I ran 675HP for 100 hours without a problem on my old mistress before Konrads. And that is on heavy twin appliacations. A single 24' no problem if properly maintained. I am sure others will chime in with the same info. I would not hesitate if the deal is right

There's more than enough drive there for that motor/boat.... hopefully the X is not to low but that can always be fixed. We have trs parts if you need and we're here in the 305
