Talking Just purchased a 29' Mirage..Comments???

Hello All,

Well I sold my Chris Craft 260 Stinger and up-graded to a 1980 low hours 29' Mirage. I don't know much about Mirage,..I've been told it's a similar hull as the Cigarette hull of that year....comments anyone? Good or bad....let's hear what you guys have to say..

Dave-

a friend of mine has one. built about the same quality as the Chris. has a bit less cabin and cockpit space than the 260 and i believe a foot narrower. for that you pick up some speed and some ruff water capability. what kind of water do you run in? i like the layout of my friends mirage and it has classic looks. pretty solid boat but i liked my 260 stinger better, slower but i liked all the room i had on it. what kinda power is in it?

The Boat has no Engines or Drives....I will post pics in a bit. Suggestions on engines,...I'll probably stay with carburated. It had Bravo 1's in it...I might go Bravo XR if I can find a good deal. The boat is clean, clean, clean though.

AWSOME boat love the rough...they were built in the late 70's early 80s in Miami...if i'm not mistaken it was built by a latin guy..but forgot his name right now but i'm sure Charlie and the old school guys will give you all that 411.....congrats go with big power
