They raised the deck on the newer 322's which gave more head room, but the overall length I think is pretty much the same. Mine is a ***** to get in, but thankfully I haven't taken a shot to the head. Lol... We can sleep on the forward birth, but my 24' Pantera had a longer front birth. Believe it or not, we've done a few nights with all 4 of us in the cabin. Made a little divider piece that spans the two facing couches. Us in the front and kids in the middle. Window unit with custom directional hatch cover, and once situated, slept like a baby. Haha...

Mine may be for sale hear soon. Just doesn't get the use it needs to justify the cost and insurance. Plus, the boat riding we do down hear in the salt, really suits the center console life. Plus, it's a **** ton easier for me to turn wrenches on (1) outboard, rather than (2) tightly squeezed big blocks. :P

The newer ones have way nicer cabins.

I looked at one for sale up here just to make sure what I thought I knew and was.

I even thought about raising the deck myself.

The newer ones just don't have the lines of yours.

Side note, the one I looked at?
Ugh.

At a broker. Called before seeing in person.
He said "turn Key".
He lied.

Bench seat totally water logged and rotted, vision missing, steering shot, cabin shot, on wrong trailer, etc.
very very sad.

Where did you get the 29 SC, it looks a lot like my old boat I sold Kenny at Velocity a few years ago.

If you're asking about mine, It came from a guy at Lake of the Ozarks who got it after it was repo'd from someone who owned a car lot in Missouri that went belly up....

I've noticed a few that have the same color scheme as mine...
