I'll have FreekAzz post up as he has a 29' Profile.

My take on his boat is that it's squirrly at 70+ mph and it's really narrow in the cabin.
He's going to be adding a supercharger this year and hopefully longer trim tabs to stabilize at the higher speed.

I wonder if the 29 Profile of today is what was the '27 with an integrated platform added? I saw a newer 29 next to my friends boat and it looked smaller.

Whass up doggs? I have a 29'9 '95 Profile, w/built 502/535hp 69 gps very responsive off the line & very good mid range K-Planes highly recamended.running a 23pitch 3 blade mirage plus definatly not the right prop for the boat. The boat tends to dig in on the frt. end to much Not enough bow lift w/ this prop talk to a few other members sug. going w/a 4 blade bravo 1 struct. of boat very sound. defin. defin. no storage space. Its a major down fall on the boats design. my friend is right a little squirlly. could be from not enough bow lift. Only complaint is storage, not enough

Yes it is..
I saw that boat for sale on the interenet about 4-5 year ago. I believe it was in IA then. Cool boat, wish I had, had the money to buy it.

My friend said he is going to have them put it in the contract that the 26V will do 75 GPS with the 496 HO
since that statement was made during the sales pitch.
We'll see if they back down from that number when it gets down to sale time.

Debbie told a friend of ours that the 26 was tested by hotboat lately, and that is where they got the speed numbers. Sould be out on the news stand soon.
