Default 97 2400 scr

My wife and I are looking at upgrading into a trailerable cruiser from our Caravelle. Does anyone have any thoughts on this model, good or bad. Seems to be a good starter cruiser that won't break the bank account. Looking at a 97 2400scr 5.7 alpha 1, with the standard options.(closed cooling,buss heater, 2 showers, etc....)
thanks
Chris

chris...
welcome to the zoo..the 2400 scr is a great pocket cruiser ..depending on where your going to boat...in open water the chop might be a bit much..river or bay or lake boating ..it will be fun.....the 5.7ltr engine is a great engine for this boat....it's an easy boat to modify and add your own touches....

hope this helps....

Plan on using it in the interior BC and FlatHead lake.
The boat I'm looking at has the 5.7 LX. Is there any real atvantage to having the B3 over the alpha1? heard they had problems those years, so I was stearing clear of the bravo3.

my boat has the B3 drive...as long as you make sure you maintain the zinc's religiously...you won't have any problem with the b3..especially in a fresh water lake....
as for is the b3 better than an alpha one...by far yes...it is much more effecient in the water and more economical than a single screw...better manueverability...and less prop walk and torque........
I don't mind telling anyone that the b3 drive is worth the money......

definitely don't discount the b3 drive...
