    When they tested the boat there were 4 adults,gas and gear for a total of 1,200 lbs on board the boat. This 29 is 1,000 lbs heavier than a 26 pilot with twin Yam 115,and the pilot house package, stove,sink,fridge,dinette ect.

    That boat as it sits in WA at the factory is $140,000.00. I know they would like to have one like this at the show, they had many guys asking about one this size last year this is why they built this one.
    Have you checked out the video on the water test?

    Default Wooldridge

    The 29 above in the pics has a 1/4 bottom with .160 sides, with 6, t6061 stringers and 6, 3/16 L shaped pieces that run front to rear that are welded at the bottom and hold up the floor boards and box in the under floor storage compartments and front storage boxes This makes 18 welded contact points in the bottom structure. Hopefully the pic shows it better than I can explain it. The pics are of a 27 but they are all built the same way, the 29 has the thicker bottom and sides.
