    I see photo's of some of these big cats a few of you guys have on here and think to myself "wow"

    Here is a good example of how buying one is only the beginning.

    Any chance you could take a ride over to Port Everglades and find someone/company with a crane that might be willing to help you get it in the water?

    I can see why you were enjoying the Donzi sweet 16 so much.
    That sounds like a freakin hassle just to go boating - which I thought was supposed to be relaxing.
    I know, there's something to be said for doing 160 on the water, but for all the work/hassle involved to do it, for me it would take away from the pleasure.
    I can't tell you how many times on this board I've seen people mention about a previous (smaller) boat that they sold, and wish they would have never sold it because it was so easy to go boating, didn't cost a fortune to maintain, they had more fun, etc. compared to the current boat.
    Sorry Gino - didn't mean to step in, and sorry I'm not of any assistance to your question, just stating my opinion.
    I think it's a helluva boat, but it sounds to be almost like a second job to enjoy it.

    Hey Gino,
    This sounds like a job for Louie"the Rigger" !! Question 1 do you have lifting eyes on the boat? If so, you can lift it with a travel lift at any good marina by removing the slings and hooking the hooks to short slings to the boat. Or any marina worth its salt will be able to lift and set your boat in the water.
    The Gantries and Yard Arms have there place, but on a million dollar boat, I would use a proffesional and avoid an accident. Louie

    Either that of stop by one of the local lumber yards, they probably have a nice big forklift that might be able to do the trick...from what I've heard there's not a whole lot of building going on these days...that or someone with some air jacks, but don't know if you have the clearance on the sides of your tilt....

    All of this with no disrespect too Gino, and just a guess.

    1 He keeps it at a Benz. dealer hoping somebody with more money than sense will buy it because it looks like the car he has.

    2 sorry it's the ST.Johns river but without knowing where he is or wants to boat it may be fresh, brackish.

    3 I would hope he has them set up for pump gas when just boating and not at a poker run or needing to go as fast as it can. So $3.50 a gal. and when you have over 2 mil in the 3 boats he has gas money is not what you think about its going boating.

    4 He clearly has the coin, he F's more stuff up in a year costing more than most of us payed for our boats and posts it on here for us to laugh at. Witch by the way I love to read, it makes me feel better about the crap I break.

    5 I still think a lift or boatel is the best, towing big boats around sucks with all the NON drivers out there.

    How much would your local Marina charge to lift your boat from your trailer into the water with a standard forklift ?
    Can't be too out of line .
    Seems to me like a proven safe method . JMO
