Longer tabs can take care of the chine walking

I have seen a couple of Pythons doing 100+ with no chine walk. The boat just has to be rigged for such speeds. Pythons are a narrow beamed boat which makes it very sensitive to weight distributions. Most 24 footers come with Bennett tabs which need to be replaced with 280 K-planes for 75+ speeds. All in all for the money Pythons can't be beat. If I were back in the 24 footer range, that's exactly what I would buy. One of the best looking boats I ever owned was a solid red Python with white interior. Man I miss that boat.

The 24 python is a nice lake boat. I've spent many a day on one that had a 454 with a B&M 250 on it that ran a touch over 80 on the perfect day. Let me tell ya 80 is rolling in a Python.

I know of 1 with a big blower motor that used to be on Lake Hartwell that GPS'd 92 . I don't want to be on it at 92 in much water.

There are a lot of people who started this addiction with a Python

The thought has crossed my mind, but I dont even wanna get in talks with anyone, 'til the money is in my account. I really need to sell my boat to be able to do this, I took extra $$ out of the refi to do the roof, and A/C, which I will do over the winter, I guess I could borrow, and put back when mine sells, but I really dont have room for 2 boats.

Open,

I still have the buddy with the Vector for sale. It has a new cockpit, bravo drive, 454 EFI, fresh paint on the trailer with custom wheels, etc. It's in Florida if your buddy is interested I will pass along his number to you.
