Default 29 Profile ???

Looking for a friend, we found a couple of the older style boats 95/97 , dont really have any info on the boats as to how they handle the rougher water and speed with a big block. Anyone out there have info good or bad lets us know.

ive never been on one but i was trying to stay along side Kruzn at loto last summer in a 288 Sunsation.
water was very rough at the time.
needless to say , i had to drag my tabs and slow down or take a beating.
he just kept going and didnt seam to bounce around much.
btw , his boat is in the boats for sale section.

I knew of a mid to upper 20 ft with a single 502. This boat did 55 on the best day but it did seem to have a fairly good ride. I think it was around a 1995 or so. Individual had it for at least 5 years and did not have many problems with it.

A friend of mine is looking at buying a 04 26 ft with a
496 HO (425 hp). Profile owner says it'll do 75 mph.
Lines on it look clean and decent graphics.

Profile makes a cat and a V Hull both made in Sumner, Iowa. The 26 V Hull with a 496 I seriously doubt will hit 75 GPS. The speedo may show 75 but that can vary a great deal from actual speed. They are a very heavy boat and do not have that agressive of a Hull design. Just my $.02

Surely they wouldn't lie just for the sale of a boat. Would they?

Profile makes a 260v, 299v, 331v, 372v, 382v and a 402v.. My buddy has a 26v with a stock 454MPI MAG that runs 69gps,,, The 26v is light boat, with a narrow beam. I'm not shure of the exact weight but I will find out..

My friend has a 1994 29 Profile. He has BIG (800-900) HP power in it. Here's my take on it ....

Pros
Full 29' and wide, has a big feel to it.
Plenty of freeboard.
Rides pretty good, although I've never been in real rough water on it.

Cons
The deck is REAL thin. It flexes when walked on.
Finish quality, it seem like a lot of the door, fittings, panel, etc. are broken.
There are faster hulls out there. He's running mid 80's.
When seated in the front seats I can't see over windscreen.
