If they wife said no your done.
I do think you need to decide if you want more speed or more comfort, that will make it much easier.
Do you want a twin or single? Donzi makes a twin SBC in the 28 foot.
Are you going to sleep on it ever?

Its a tough decision to make. Ive been window shopping for a while now so I have a better idea on what boat to get once I sell my baja. I do like the fountains, but at 6' tall and 225lbs, they can be a little cramped. Basically, I couldnt go any smaller than the 35. The other boats on my list so far to look at are the 33 or 36 Outlaw, 32 Active Thunder, 31 Sonic SS, 35 or 38 Cig, 33 Donzi or Formula 382 Fastech. My basic needs is that I want a bigger boat with decent room in the cockpit and cuddy for me and friends and can hit 80 mph or near it. Take your time and climb through as many boats as possible. This will help you decide.
I didn't read the entire thread so this may have been said. if you can the only way to buy a 29 is with a single..preferably a blue motor. I had a 01 with a 500 EFI. Although it didn't jump out of the hole it would fly so well over the water it was a blast to drive. Also, it was a great boat to work on. If you had to change the plugs...no problem. You could get to everything. I could fit in the engine compartment...no problem. IMO the 29 with a single is a all around great boat. I just found a 2003 with a 525 in Boat trader for $44k at Boat Country in Cali. Looked pretty nice in the pics.

Don't get it...not worth the wife hassle. Get something you'll both be happy with and life will be much better. We dropped the Fountain for some of the same reasons you mention and were much happier with our other choice.
does any one know where a 32 fountain signature for sale is. i sold mine. BIG MISTAKE !
If I were in the market, I'd be looking for a 288 Sunsation - it's a single, but it will cost a lot less to run than a 29ish boat with twins.
If you want to stand out from the crowd add 29' Phantom to the list...
