    Thers no right answer, only personal taste! But just looking at recient events, the Donzi took F2 in APBA. With a Canadain team , and a women driver! Not that theres anything wrong with that .

    Had a chance to talk with the winning team at the Miami boat show this winter, and they were telling us that they have some sligt modifications to the hull for next season. It should be interesting to watch.

    I'll just say this because I love Brian and Wilma (The 2003 F2 APBA "National" Champs), a women driver, driver of the year by the way, does not make a difference, it is a team sport, and she is very good, they both are, especially together. They did for sure sport the very best super rough water set up in 2003, but in typical racing conditions under 6ft, there boat was slower then our Formula with 525's, and our Gladiator with 500's is still faster then our Formula............Just a note..........

    My one hold back from either if these is the lack of a cabin. Although ive never spent a night in the cabin of my 28, its till good for storage and getting out of the sun. Anyone have any pics of the skater or know where i can get them? also anyone know anything about the new eliminator daytona? sit down with canopies and a full cabin. much slower then the donzi and cig though, but with the right power can get up over 100. This one caught my eye today.

    seats on the Cig look good but I agree that we were there years back before Aronow developed the 'bolster"...he must have developed "piles" from riding those waves in seats!

    I'll tell you right now that donzi ZR is SWEEET! Rides like a freakin Cadillac. And that's coming from someone who LOVES Cig's. And the interior on the ZR is nicer than the Gladiator. Both are awesome.

    I am a die hard Cig lover and former Donzi owner. This would be a tough call for someone in the market for a sit down hot-rod and you really couldn't go wrong with either. The best part, aside from their awesome build quality and performance, is that you can say "I own a Cigarette/Donzi" and every Joe Blow knows what you got.

    I own a Kryptonite. Oh, they are a small custom builder out on Long Isl...... see what I mean.

    Is a production boat ???? Where is one ... and don't tell me about that Baja they released
