Exclamation 24 python ? any good?????

Looks good, but as any body ever had the wheel of one?
The only thing I can see that I don't like is clue down carpet.

Thumbs up Re: 24 python ? any good?????

Thanks open, So I guess if the transom is dry then its not a bad boat.
It seems the python is around 4k less than a superboat (comparable in year & hp)

Pythons were built very inconsistently. Some were Woven Roving, some were biaxial and some have even built of all mat. It all depended on what materials were left over. I have a biaxial boat with balsa core and is bullet proof. Mine has been put to the test and never a crack but I did have to replace the stringers and transom but wood will do that after 15 years.

My 21 I'm building. I bought the 21 Apache molds and the 41 Cigar molds a while back. I am not too far from Hollis's shop(about 10min.)
