Goods, Bads, Pros, Cons. Boat is in excellent condition. We will be doing a sea trial tomorrow evening. I have no previous experience with this hull. Currently own 1976 Montauk with 115 Johnson . . .
Thank you for any comments . . .

How did you sea trial go? I have a 97/24 and love it. Of all my whalers this is my all around favorite for the waters where we live. (Lake St. Clair) Mine has twin 200's. Buy it right and enjoy.

I have a '95 24 Outrage with t/175 Ocean Runners, bought it in '96 with 65 hours on it. I now have 500 hours and operate it in Narragansett Bay, RI. Great boat, handles anything that comes it's way.
Can be a little tender on trim, tends to snake a bit in a following sea. I purchased the Bennett auto trim control which improved the left to right trim leaning.
I was thinking of upgrading the power recently, and for the cost of two new engines I felt I was spending way too much money on a 10 year old boat that I would never get back in resale. This is a concern that I would have about purchasing the '94. In my opinion the 150's are a little underpowered, and if you find yourself with one blown power head you are faced with spending 3-4k for a new power head, or 20+k for new twins.
My hull is as solid today as it was the day I bought her, if the '94 was well cared for you can't go wrong, just put it in the back of your mind that the engines will have to be updated.
