    Single screw or twins? Seems like more were built with twins. I recall seeing one not too long ago listed for $29k, but don't remember the details. I'm pretty sure it might have been out on L.I. in which case I assume you already checked that one out. It was a white one with a flybridge.

    That looks like a real good way to go. Fly down have a look, give them $3k, have it trucked back.

    was told to stay away from that hull and 79 too old...I thought the keel and hull arent desirable until mid/late 80s?...But what do I know maybe its a good deal?

    My good ole buddy Chrisrack might check it out for me...

    What did they change on the later models? As far as I know they are all solid glass hulls. Do you think they modified the keel? It does not look as if there is a ton of room to swing very a large wheel on this hull, but it might just be the photography at play. Perhaps on the later models they made the keel deeper to create more room for a larger prop?

    I know they tweaked the twins model until late 80s...hopefully someone else chimes in here but i believe there are differences with single as well.

    Yes all are solid. However there were changes made. Hopefulyl nycharterboat responds the guy knows these hulls.

    Must be in pretty rough shape has been for sale for a while.
