Sport Fishing - - BOATS - BY CHRIS WOOD­WARD

a re­design of its SEA VEE AN­NOUNCED pop­u­lar 29-foot V-hull with the in­tro­duc­tion of the 290B. The 290B uses the com­pany’s pro­pri­etary vac­u­umas­sisted resin-trans­fer mold­ing tech­nol­ogy, which in­fuses the fully cored hull, stringers and bulk­heads si­mul­ta­ne­ously. The stiffer build al­lows Sea Vee to re­duce the num­ber of stringers from four to two.

Stan­dard fea­tures in­clude an in­te­grated en­gine plat­form with a tran­som door, dry stor­age be­low deck level, trim tabs, hy­draulic steer­ing and dual bilge pumps. Op­tions in­clude hard­tops, sec­ond sta­tions, fixed or re­mov­able seat­ing, and many elec­tron­ics choices. Cap­tain’s Edi­tion and Coastal lean­ing-post and tackle-sta­tion units are avail­able.

New, larger, epoxy-coated alu­minum fuel tanks in­crease fuel ca­pac­ity (now 251 gal­lons, up from 232).

An­glers will ap­pre­ci­ate the fully in­su­lated fish box, high-per­for­mance 50-gal­lon livewell sys­tem and the ded­i­cated pad, which al­lows for flush mount­ing large com­mer­cially rated trans­duc­ers. The 290B is avail­able in a twin-out­board con­fig­u­ra­tion with max horse­power of 700.
