Started a new thread as most of these end up real negative. Hopefully this one will not. We all know the story of those that have bad expierances because like the news that is what gets all air time.
Anyway for the other 29' profile owner looking for 100 mph I would like to see how your project goes. I have a 97 29' and hit a brick wall at about 85mph. I was running about 700hp guessing as the motor was never on a dyno. Boat now has a 502mpi with Tyler Crockett heads and cam. Gas was killing me 2 years ago with the blower and I hurt a couple of pistons during a wekend on the Scaramento Delta but that is another story.
For performance on the 29 I do not know how other 29s ride but mine is flat and wet or a lot of the bottom in the water. Great ride but not the best for speed.
We have over 900hrs on the boat and no real problems that others have had. I new what I was getting when I bought and tha price was right. We really enjoy ours.
