I'm not familar with Pantera. In fact, I don't think that I've ever seen one on a Texas lake. Tell me more, please.

I like my Baja, but it really doesn't get much dockside appeal. The 29' Fever got a ton more attention than the Baja does. The Baja absolutely crushed the Fountain in rough water though, however it does not do 70MPH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cig Bullet all the way! They are heavy so there not going to be the fastest out there but you can't beat there ride. And do you want to talk about cool boat's take a good look at one and you will be hooked! Get behind the helm and check out the cabin you will be in love.

Clay,

Envision sells 80 boats a year at LOTO for one reason - RIDE. Plenty of used 29's on the market. Plus, the Envision, like the Crownline, has the large cockpit area, windshield, and swim platform that any self-respecting inland boater requires.

Find one with a 502 and slap your Whipple on it for 70 mph.

Clay, ask away on the Pantera owners forum.
I'm sure you'll get plenty of responses.

But it does not have the enclosed head you are
looking for.
Check out the website too.

clay,

you're talking about lake riding Right? no real offshore stuff right?
so most of the boats were talking about here will ride just fine on lake rough, the things you should also concern yourself w/ are Price? ( if it matters), re-sale values, maintenance (trick motors or stock mercs), and all the little conveniences that these manufacturers offer or don't boats, seating capacity etc.. you could buy a new Baja similar for what you'll get an 88 cig for, yes, the cig is twice the boat in the performance and build category, but w/ the Baja you get warranty etc..so you need to decide what matters most in your world.

Barcostal - Where are you shopping for Baja's?? I want to know Because I am going to go there and buy there whole lot! That Cig was 49,000 what a deal on a new boat. Good thing it has a Warranty though! you will need it. As for Envision Dee V but ugly boats.
