When time permits, I will get pic`s to show the two 540`s without any breathing room, yes they are against each other to say the least.

Your friend probably had the 31ft SCARAB, standard was twin big block 454mags.

no way would the 29 ever fit big blocks, the twin 350's barely fit

I have a 98 29 with the single 502, I threw on an EMI exhaust with stainless risers and got a solid 62mph out of the boat

Not too many Pantera's out here on the West so it's hard to compare, I've been pretty happy with the 29 SCARAB, as I am sure most Pantera owners feel the same about theirs

Jo,
I think a Pantera is awesome boat, I would be all over Tims boat. The only thing I don't like is the cabin doors and the flip entrance. other then that I think they are awesome.

That is a great setup, they are solid as can be when closed under way, and can be strapped back while sitting an hangin out.

Pantera all the way, mine has room in the engine compartment. I know this because iam always dropping stuff in there. Runs in the 80's no promblem, and a comfortable ride no matter w/the condition. The cabin door is easy and always out of the way. Thanks DOMZ

If you are talking about Tim's, take it out for a ride. You WILL buy it. Trust me. That thing is just BADD. I was thinking about buying it myself but I would need to sell my Open Fisherman first. Still thinking about it though....

Domz,
That thing looks wicked !! Congrats...
