Do a search, there is a lot of information on this question. I have owned both (not with a 496), get a 29. The 27 is a small boat, especially after you get use to it. The 29 is a popular boat, the price reflects that. PM me If you have any specific questions. Im not crazy about a 496 single. Propped right, it may hit 70.

Where do you plan to use the boat?
As Jtbooten said, it's a small boat (cockpit and cabin). On the 3rd outing, I told my wife we need a bigger boat. Ride-wise, it was perfect for our local river which doesn't get rough at all.
From a 27, we went to a 35, and from 35 to a 42. ...and the 42 is still not big enough! LOL

Good luck ! Get what you want to afford and start saving for the next upgrade!

I was in the market for a 26-28 single engine sport boat. I came across an 04 27 496HO with 68hrs on it and pulled the trigger. I came out of a 23' center console so to me this thing rode like a Cadillac, lol. I boat on the Detroit River and Lake Erie. I definitely pick and choose the days that I'm out on Erie but I love my 27.
