Russ, it's a 29' Lightning Powerboats Center Console. These guys also build the race cats like the Hooter boat.

Thanks for the reply. These guys are on screamandfly.com , selling their wares. I was a lways curious as to the fit and finish of their product.
They seem to have the performance numbers down.

The owner of the company lives in my neighborhood. I did not know this until our neighborhood had a little get together poker run a couple of weeks ago. I ended up at the same table as this boat at the lunch stop and I told him how good his boat looked in the water and it was flying. I was on Driven1's 47 Fountain and we were going 80-85mph and this 29 CC was keeping up with us!!!! That is when I found out he builds them. the boat seems real nice and he can build them simple or plush. That is about all I know.

The boat if set up right will do a close 90.
The fuel burn on my 250EFI's = 29gal/hr at full throttle per motor & at 45/50mph cruise around 15-18 depending on the water. Actually not bad if you go easy on the Throttles. Have you looked at the E-tecs? Merc will be probaly a couple mph faster but the E-tec has a great warraty & they appear to be holding up.
