Roughwater 29

Pictures Brochure Articles



Built from 1980 to 1981 this boat has very little documented information on it. I have seen one in our area and have a few photos.

Hal Paris interview…Below are the actual words Hal Paris gave me on the Roughwater 29.

This was designed by Ed Monk Jr. to try and beat the moorage shortage. I asked him for an 8 foot beam so it could be put on a trailer if needed. CC Chen didn’t have room to build this in his factory so I contracted with a Korean company to build 12.

The company was Kung Il and was a subsidy of Hyundai Motor Co. I ended up losing $5000.00 on each sale because of the cost, changes in the market, and the comment below.

The factory put in a Ford diesel as specified, but it was not a boat version with the right flywheel. It was from a tractor and the vibration was very severe.
