Bob and Dave have been tight for years so that probably had a little to do with the decision. Before the 29' dave told me Bob was going to buy a 34'.

I owned two DCB's and and Eliminator Rigged by DCB prior to them making their own boats. I will not buy from them again, but they do build a nice boat.

The 29 that was on the cover of both HB and PB mag is owned by a friend, and it runs very good. I was told that Bob was very impressed with the boat when he tested it.

I also taked to Bob at Havasu last year about the Liquid Metal Skater, and he also had very good things to say about it as well.

I agree with 3DO, I believe he will be using this boat at Parker and Havasu. For an offshore boat I think he might choose something else. My.02

Should run 140+.
Stock 525 mercs will run 125. That's an extremely efficient hull.
The boat above has N/A 650's and runs about 124 mph. 125 with 525's sounds little off to me.

125 with 525efi's sounds real off to me, unless they tow it up on plane and use up five miles of water to get top speed. 108-112 sounds more like it with a set of 525EFI's. Anyone can get the big number, but what is the use if it takes twenty minutes to get there.
