What is the condition of the hull? What was she painted with? How does she perform, cruise speed and fuel burn?

The hull, transom, stringers and deck are all solid. The hull is painted with awlgrip with clear coat over it. I would say the awlgrip is in fair codition considering it was painted 25 years ago. In addition there are a few spider cracks in the gel coat that is common to these particular boats. Last week running with half a load of fuel and around 600 lbs of gear and passengers I was getting 14 GPH at 27.5 mph in relatively calm conditions
