The boat is there on consignment. The owner of the store told me to make an offer as he just wanted it off the lot, they are more of a small, outboard powered fishing boat kind of place. I just wanted to look at it. He said that he didn't know much about the hull but that mechanically the boat was near perfect, being owned by a mechanic. The motor looked real nice. I would bet it could be had for $8 grand-ish

Check out the History of the 24.

When everyone realized Don wasn't going to build these and discarded the molds, everybody and their brother made a copy of them.

That is a copy of the 24 (& 27) Squadron. The underdash and cockpit is different as well as the minimal number and very thin strigers...
Looks like they raised the freeboard on the hullsides a couple inches as well.
