take a good long hard look at the lines and edges , never seen a stright one yet. there were also 6 other 95 to 98 pukefiles around here that had nothing but problems. Randy always blamed us for running in to rough of waters! our fault that his boats flexed rattled and shook themselves apart.(I take that back I have seen a stright one, it was a 28 cat, because he bought the mold from the old Red Line boats.) just be careful.

My friend has a '94 29V. It has a REAL BIG feel to it and rides good. He has around 800 HP in it and it runs in the low 80's.

The quality issues that the others mentioned are the same with my friend's boat. He just had the transom replaced. The deck flexes REAL bad, the cockpit floor doesn't feel real solid, the cabin and interior didn't hold up well.

This boat came from LOTO, I wonder if it is the same boat KCHOTBOAT is talking about?? It was called HOT! HOT HOT!

I have a friend with a 2004 304 mid cabin with a 525 for sale. It is a nice boat but he wants bigger. I do not think he is on this board but here is a link to the ad and if you want me to look at anything or take any pictures met me know. I know he is wanting out of it so you might get a real good deal. It has done very well on GLOC and runs very good.

No the guy I know still has his for sale. He has about the same HP in his also. The bottom was redone on my friends and new interior. At one time there where alot of 29 Profiles at LOTO since they where in the 50's to 60's for a new one.
