Well today was a sad day x3.I've been wanting a 29 Outlaw for quite some time now,so I sold the 24.:( I've had my eye on a couple of 29's for alittle while. So this week I called and spoke to both owners,got pics E-mailed,(they were both halfway across the country)even did a little price haggling.Now I've got this check burning a hole in my pocket and guess what.:devious: Yep' their both sold.So,it's the 4th of July and I'm on vacation for the next week and now I've got no [email protected]#king boat.The good news is ,my brother-in-law bought the boat.:D Maybe I can get him to take me for a ride.Maybe even let me drive!Hopefully I'll come up with a boat soon.Don't really like sitting on the sidelines.Although,it gives my wife longer to stock pile some gas money.:laugher: OK,enough bitchin' for now,hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday.

You're not alone. We spent all morning looking at new Baja's. Went there with cash dollars in my pocket and the salesman didn't seem to want to take me seriously. This was our 2nd time there. He spent most his time on the phone and on his laptop. We ended up walking out. I'm probably going down to Texas next and bring back a Checkmate or maybe a Baja.
The day wasn't a complete loss, I did buy a new 500+hp sbc from a buddy that lives near there. Been thinking of hot rodding my Stude later, so it might get used in that. Not sure if I have the heart to pull my flathead though.

Hammer, I hope you have luck finding another Outlaw. I'm starting to like them boats ! :)

Thats a bad way to be looking for a boat,,,, you end up buying something/anything thats "OK" dont buy one that you say I can live with,,,, wait for the one that makes you say I have to have that !!!

OB, I am impressed. I knew that if we worked on you long enough your intelligence would surface.

Hammer-boatrader online has a few. Most dealers will get to invoice-as they are getting a lot of factory help with inventory. I am sure eyour forum buddies will go look for you if they are close.

OB, I need a lot more money for "have to have that"! :D
We're trying to go new, instead of inheriting someone elses headache, so you sometimes you have to compromise. Since the summer is half gone here and I won't be in Texas till fall, I just might wait till next year. It would also give me more time to heal up if nothing else doesn't fall apart. :eek: :)
Hey, how are your injuries coming along ?

Thanks for the encouraging words guys.I'm trying to be patient but patience isn't a strong point for me.:) Jeff,I'd love to take you up on your offer,but I'd probably have too much fun and not want to leave.I'll keep you all posted on my search.:)

What year/engine combo are you looking for? I know of a very nice 29 that may be for sale. 1997 twin 454 MAGS - teal SST for around 60K

I'm not really locked in on a certain year,and yes I am aware of the stringer issues.I don't want anything less than 454 mags(385hp).I am also going to need a trailer with it. Eddie, if you have anymore pics, I would like to see them. If anyone else knows of a 29 for sale,please let me know. Thanks:)
