!990 24' Blackwidow

I ran it hard offshore without any structural problems. It had sturdy standup bollsters and a DEEP-V. We ran it to Catalina and back in all kinds of water with no issues. It had a 454Mag BBC mated to a King Cobra and ran in the 60's. I bought it in 1994 for $22k and sold it in 1998 for $17k.

Are you looking at a 24 or a 30?

If you are looking for a 30', I know where one is at. Freshwater, not used very much, stored indoors and heated. 454's, King Cobra's. Owner is EXTREMELY MOTIVATED! I think he may have used it once this year.

PM me if interested.

Rode on one out on the Chesapeak Bay back in 1990. If I remember correctly, it was 25'. Seemed like a nice stable ride over 60 m.p.h. with 454/O.M.C. package ... walked all over a 22' Chris-Craft Stinger and got lots of looks at the dock, too. I was pretty impressed at the time, but this was before I had any real significant offshore/performance experience (now running a 382 Formula). Haven't seen the guy in years so can't tell you of any problems with it.
