My name is Scott Boldt but I am not from FL. I own a 1969 18' Donzi Classic. I was not going to add to this thread because I feel that even if there is something about a product you don't like, you should not bash the product. How many times have we bought something only to find it was not what we thought we were getting. I for one would buy nothing but a Donzi. Just this past weekend, I took my boat down to Sarasota FL for the Donzi Owners 2001 Rally. We did a run on Saturday from Sarasota to Tampa across the bay. It was windy and the water was very ruff. My Donzi not only got me to Tampa, but returned me back to Sarasota with out a single problem other than some loose screws on the rub rail. Remember, this is a 32 year old 18' boat running in 3 to 4' swells. I loved it even though getting out of bed the following morning was difficult. My point here is. This man is not getting anywhere by bashing Donzi boats on this website. Donzi owners like myself know the boats are well built. Mine has brought me home many times when I was in conditions I had no buisness being in. Contact the company and first, listen to their side of the story and there offer to lay this issue to rest. If you still feel your not getting a fair deal, take the next step, but keep it off this site and your website. All your doing is making people mad. You ask me if I would buy another Donzi? YOU BET YOUR A**. Don Aronow knew what he was doing when he started Donzi. It's amazing how often the boat is copied. That's the best selling point available. Take a ride in one, you'll buy one the next day!!
