Default Envision Boats?

Anyone know anything about Envisions? Good bad, ugly?
A local dealer here has one I'm going to take a look at next week. 1994, 26' with 7.4 & Bravo. Right now, I can't go with anything too exotic, since, for one, I can't afford it. Problem # 2 is that I can't put in a lift at my house, and I don't want to trailer. That leaves me with bottom paint. I know it sucks, but it's my only choice, and this boat is already painted. I couldn't bring myself to bottom paint anything too nice, and I'm too used to having my boat in the water to go back to trailering.
Anything in particular to watch out for with this model? If I get to that point, I'll have it surveyed, just wondering if there were any known problems with the hull.

My friend asked me about these boats and I don't know much either, so I could also use some info. to pass along.

Envision is a "nothing fancy" boat company that builds a solid boat. According to the owner, they have never had a hull warranty. Most boats are sold at Lake of the Ozarks, and I'd believe it because I saw several dozen on the water there last weekend. A 7.4 should power the 26 pretty decent and the ride should be excellent for a 26' boat. Do a search on Envision and you will find a couple threads that will give you a background.
