actually it was a real good running motor, smooth, quiet, and didn't burn much fuel, which explains why it had no power.

Had a DE, now 24' Privateer
This has to be the 24' privateer hull They did build the 27'(jc mold) iin the late 80's. Only a few were built and they had alot deeper keels.

As orient star mentioned it was used on the great south bay so deep draft if not your friend.

How to turn a bigger prop. Can't really tell it the hull has a tunnel added either. Is this factory?!


it does look like there is a tunnel in it, it probably is factory, they made a few like that, my friend has a 26 set up the same way had a 7.3 in it, now a 250 b cummins
