    I took a ride on the poker run version that was at the in water show. The boat rides awesome. If you go to the Miami boat show pic thread by Bill R you can see some of the pictures from our ride. They really did an awesome job on it. DMAN2

    Thumbs up

    Rode it Tuesday, after the wind switched to the east and picked up to 20 +, small craft warnings.. Ride is fantastic, lands smoothly. The sit down position had me concerned, growing up in Miami I know the cut well, but the boat rides so well that it was no a problem. Even after chasing a few sportfish boats around to bounce off of their wakes, we never had a rough landing. We pulled a 45+ MPH U turn in the very end of the cut, true 6' swells easily, no muss, no fuss.

    Looks wise, it is a different look for sure. I will admit the Gladiator @ the show (will those flames stick?) was probably the sharpest boat there, but I would hate to have to dock it anywhere with no rubrail. Course, I understand that one spent something like 6 weeks in the paint shop?

    Marty, Building boat 4 and 5 as we speak no 4 was just sold they have 3 more ortders. Number 4 is being built with big Hp and being sent out for a custom paint job. The reason for the big engine compartment is they can stagger 2 engines.

    I was impressed enough to become a Donzi dealer again. Hopefully my 38 will be the next one out of the mold.
