Default New (to me) 2006 29' Fountain !!!

Thought I'd share some pics of my new boat. Have been watching 29's for two years and finally made the plunge. It's a 2006 with 525efi and XR drive, 130 hours, on a Myco trailer! I'm going to sell the 525/XR drive and put my dry sump 632/Imco drive from the Checkmate in the Fountain (and sell the Check). The Fountain is unbelievably stable and smooth riding (almost boring) compared to the little hot rod Checkmate running 100+ but it's going to be nice to run fast in bigger water...

Nice boat . You should have plenty of trouble free boating with that package.

Anyone care to guess what the 29 will run after the transplant?
