Default 29 Fountain w/ 500HP

I am looking at a 29 Fountain with a HP500 EFI engine and am curious as to what the realistic top speed of this boat will be.

it might only be mid to upper 70's but you will enjoy it more than if you get the 29 with twins!!!

I'd take my 29 with twins over a single any day... It's always nice to know you can at least limp home if one has a problem... But it also has 350 mags and on the best day your looking at 68-70 tops...
