    Looked into one a while back...Nice heavy layup hull. Sleekfreak has an Aristocrat tunnel. Takes a lot of HP to move it, but it'll hold up to the chop from what I understand.

    My uncle had one brand new and loved it. The tunnel bottom helps make that big thing move, good luck!

    check for rotten wood and look for a drain in the front of the bilge, if no drain the wood undr the center deck could be rotten, that was how mine was

    Got one myself, 454 stock motor and VERY little trim got 58.8 mph @ 4800rpm. That was running very wet too. Definitely a big head turner, I thought she felt a little weak over waves but ive had her out in Memorial day chop and she can hang pretty good. Just put a place diverter on it but have yet been able to hit the water because my work schedule is too busy. check out my build thread in my signature and then it will have a link to an image gallery. Feel free to ask me any specific questions you might have
