Default Avanti 33

Hello everyone this is my first post here even though I have been lurking around on this forum for a while searching for informations.
I am From a French Caribbean island and boat like the one I will be talking about are rare around here.
Recently an Avanti 33 (cigarette type not the CC) has been listed for sale with twin 300 verados.
I have very little information on the boat and I'm actually confused from where it actually comes from. I know there were 2 Avanti builders one in NJ and one in FL.
I tried the boat and found it to be very sluggish (51mph WOT) and was wondering if it was normal ? The boat rode very well though and was very planted (Guy told me it weighted around 4 tons ?) I have seen people saying theirs were running faster with smaller engines, but I was planning to replace the double 300 with 350s anyway. What kind of speed can I expect with new mercury props ?
I have seen people saying that before 2000 the boats were built with wood stringers, the one I'm looking at is from 1997, is this something I have to worry about ?
What other problems are well known on these boats ?
I can't post any picture due to the fact I'm new. I can send them in PM if people are willing to help !
Thank you very much in advance.

just post a dot in 9 different post you will be able to post pictures!
do your due diligence on the boat: transom and stringer moisture / rot is the commom problem, unless all composites, wich I doubt !

I would rather send pictures in PM than "ruining" other peoples posts with dots if possible.
I looked around and everything was pretty solid to be honest even though the floor was a little bit too soft for my liking so I'm wondering. People tend to say its either built very well or very poorly depending on where it comes from.
