How many manufactures make a twin screw V bottom under 29'?

Which ones have a stepped hull?

Any experience with speeds vs. Power?

Come on now, give me some real talk about boats.:gunner:

Excaliber made a 27 with twin outboards and a friend had a 28 Advantage with small block twins in it.

You can get a 28 Pantera with twins and a 29' Scarab with twins. Wellcraft made the P29 with twin 377 Scorpions (I think) or at least small blocks.

Old Wellcraft Nova II (26') and Nova III (27') and the Scarab Panther (29') all had twins

I owned a NOVA III with twins 350's. It was fun but way too rear heavy.

Donzi 28 - if it wasn't so heavy it would be.....

there are a number of them in my area....because of a Donzi dealer nearby and the Sunsation 288 with that little old 496/HO smokes'em every time....

however - they are beautiful well built boats...

Heavy is good in my book. But I like a good ride more than top speed. After all, I am a Formula fan.:)

yes, this is true.... while I'm skating from the top of one wave to the next; they're plowing through them...mowing them down....

that's the great thing about boats right?....you can always find one that fits your liking...

No, actually I can't find "one" to suit my liking. I guess that's why I have 7 of them.:eek: (if you count jet skis)

:D :D :D

29 Fountain can be ordered with twins
28 Sonic
280zx and zxo Donzi twins up to 377 Scorpions, but they need 92 Octane and props rotate in so you loose a lot of effect when docking.

Seems hard for that short a boat to handle the weight of twins-got more power but sluggish-Look at the time to plane times. Out in big water like the gulf of Great lakes-the back up of two would be nice. Inland-help is usually nearby. Boats, like race cars, have a critical balance for optimum ride and performance
