    I have just purchased a 24' center console manufactured from banana boat. Anyone know where i can find info or specs regarding this company and this boat? I bought it used and it has had a long history of owners so the last owner really didn't know much about it. thanks for all your help

    Those old ads are sooo great! It was all another way of doing things back then... :D
    Actually, the whole site is really great! There is a great deal of modern history of boating over there. :)

    Thanks all, good info and interesting links. I finally got the boat. Opti was bad so I bought it w/o power, found a Yamaha F225 and rigged it. Great boat;soft, dry ride.
    40 knots max.,25-30 knot cruise. Still wonder what a 300 would do. Maybe next year.
