2000 BW Outrage "Justice"

I started out with a 13'-3" as a kid then had a Nauset for about 15 years. I refinished the console. So I love Whalers. I have been boatless for five years and now I just have to have to get a boat even though I live in Arizona.
I found a 2000 BW Outrage "Justice" model for sale. Supposedly made by BW for law enforcement. It was only used by local fire/rescue department in freshwater. Several issues confuse me.
Seller says it is a 17 foot. The BW website only lists a 2000 18 foot Outrage. Is the Justice a truly different model that is not listed on the website? How long is this boat? To me the obvious differences are that it has a nice heavy duty gunwale rub rail, a black hull fender half way up the hull on the aft hull area, nice metal corner guards at the turn of the transom and large diameter side and bow rails. I like all those features. Does anybody know what else is different about a "Justice" model? Is it a lot heavier? HIN is USBWCXB437F900WB.
Engine is a 2000 115 HP Honda with 900 hours. I have only owned 2 strokers in the past but look forward to good gas consumption. Is a 4 cycle with 900 hours considered high hours? I am also confused about the engine serial number. It only says "BZBD" on the plate. I cannot find that serial number on NADA for year 2000 Hondas. Any ideas?
How will it perform with a 115 HP? Builders plate says 150 HP maximum and payload maximum of 1760 lbs. I will usually have four adults in the boat. Do you think it will pull up a skier OK? Topspeed?
Hull has typical dings for an 8 year old boat. Also a galvanized trailer. Nice T-top and dual batteries. No radios, electronics or safety gear are included. Anybody got a guess as to what something a little different like this might be worth?
Thanks in advance for any guidance. Long live Whalers!!

This boat might be a real dog with four adults aboard and towing a waterskier. Real good price, eh? You'd better pass on this one, and you might as well email me with the seller's name, phone number and location, just for the hell of it ;-)

What you are looking at is probably the "law enforcement" version of the Outrage 17 II. I believe the second version of the Outrage 17 was produced from 1996 through 1999.

too fast on the draw...
I should have clarified that 1996 to 1999 was the recreational market run. Commercial model (i.e. law enforcement, utility, military, etc.) and Recreational model year runs do not necessarily coincide.
I'm not an expert so others may chime in.

Demps is right.
I have a recreational Outrage 17 I and it has a max hp rating of 120. If you look in my profile, you can see photos.
I seem to recall the Outrage 17 II was used as a Justice model, adding the beefier construction, console etc. The recreational version of the Outrage 17 II was 150.
Hope this helps.
