Nice video......but 140+ and no life preservers!!! I'm a little partial to high speeds and PFD's (having been thrown out at 85 mph on the hudson)

Like the music who was it?

I didn't get any video of the high-speed passes...we had Lifelines on for those (and no kids).

At 110MPH...that boat is loafing along at 4,100 RPMs...but it does get thirsty:

Is that the new F-29? Awesome boats! I am thinking about going to Miami for the boat show, but the MAIN boat on my list to see is the Mach 34. I wonder if DCB goes to Miami?
I'd like to visit with a DCB owner sometime regarding the boats. Do you know anyone that has a F-34 with #6's?
Thanks.

Yep...it's a new F-29 (w/900's)...great boat. Probably one of the faster open-bows around.

Rumor has it Bob Teague ordered one.

Not sure if Dave goes to Miami.

If you give Dave a call, I'm sure he'll be able to put you in touch with an owner.

Better yet, come out to Havasu on Oct. 4th- the Fall Heatwave will undoubtedly bring out the big guns....there are usually a couple 34's running up front (mostly chasing skater40).

Thanks.
The F34 would NOT be the one to buy, it's a great looking boat--but has alot of bottom problems. I think Dave has only sold 2-3 of the 34's. Dave also claims to vacuum bag his hulls and I am told he doesn't. I do know this from an extremely reliable source.
If I was looking for a cat, the 36' Nortech or a Skater would be the one for me. Good luck whatever you buy.

Don't have a 34' DCB --just what I have been told by a very reliable source. I don't want to name names, but I am talking about an Ex-employee of DCB--I'd say that was a reliable enough source.
