Thumbs up World Fastest Bowrider?

Cograts to "NO PASS" on the writeup in Powerboat. 155 MPH DCB F-29...family style.

Out here...mid cabins are very popular. Most of em don't do 155MPH, though.

I wonder if the added weight/aerodynamic drag slows it down?

Larry from E-ticket has his 28 hull moving fast also, he is at 150, [149.5] and he think's there is more in it[not a bowrider] a lot of nice boats hitting the market

I think E-Ticket was runnin some pro-stock (dry exhaust) motors with Bravos.

Jimmy's F-29 has 900's w/#6's.

I have ridden up front at over 100MPH...it is a very smooth ride (just hear wind and water under the hull- no motors). In the back seat it's a different story, those big Littlefield blowers scream in your ears.

Here's some video of the maiden voyage over Labor Day...in case you missed it.
