Ironically I just took some pictures and sent them to him this morning. I have been quiet about this since the project is taking time to complete. I didn't want to put anything out there until we were about 30 days away of the debut.

Since the tooling for the basic boat was complete we had to go back and design and build the dash pods from scratch as well as storage boxes for the front seating and the enclosed head. Also, even though we had made molds for the back seats of the 33, the cockpit seat molds required modifications for the 29 due to the fiberglass cockpit liner's size.

Here's a couple of teasers for you.

Heavier or same weight as Savage? Rated for 600hp in outboards? How would the balance be with 400Rs?

The one I am currently building has 350 Verados. The engines all weigh about the same.

I haven't weighted it yet. However it should be close.
