They are great boats and well laid out. Just by looking at the stringers you can see they are indestructible...

My oldest son and I are restoring an 84 24 Privateer. Actually more my son than me.
Commercial fished since new east coast of Florida with alot of Bahama's experiance over the years. Naturally the wood, stringers, transom, floor required a total restoration, to be expected. After alot of hard use, alot of years, the glass structure is fine. A testament as to how the hull was built even so many years ago.
Also, the amount of factory support and assistance is awesome. Very impressive as to how much they care about what they build and the help they offer.
My son made the decision to replace all the wood with composites. It now has a closed transom and will have a porta bracket. Maybe a 250, maybe a 300. Also an upper station. The 250 or 300 is overkill but we're in the trade and can be a little more excessive than required. Same thing is true with the composites used. Overkill, but that's what he wanted to do. An XL wood stringer system, floor and transom encapsulated would have been just fine and last forever. The same transom that would hold trip or quad power structure wise is for certain overkill, but that's how he did it.
When rigged and in the water we'll see if his engineering skills proved out, that is if we dont go broke first completing the project.
As to the 24' Privateer, it's a great hull. A real workhorse. Not real pretty to some, nothing to make anyone think it's a particularily pretty hull. But the hull my son has wanted for years , finially did find the one he wanted, and the fun began.
I cant stress enough the respect we have for the people at the factory.

1st couple of inshore charters i booked many years ago used this hull. fantastic ride and very shallow draft for what you have. i opted to go a little deeper V to get offshorebut always loved these. if i ever move up again i'll be looking for this hull.

Not really sure of your total meaning but from the tone of it there's some of us that wouldn't agree.

what i mean its a 10K hull thats good, and up to commercial snuff. Some people think it should be professionally sprayed in awlgrip, rebuilt out of coosa with a brand new 4 stroke on the back and shouldn't go for more then 15K . You don't like the boat don;t buy it, no reason to insult the guy
