Well, to be perfectly honest with you. I liked the Donzi better too. It was more comfortable and roomy. I could barely squeeze my fat a$$ into the rear seats of the gladiator...and I'm not THAT big

But I do think the cig is faster....

there's another political answer huh!?

Haha, Thanks for the input guys. I think you are all right and the gladiator would win in most conditions, but I still think the Donzi would take the gladiator in the ruff stuff. Does any one have any idea what the Donzi weighs in at?

Rollin' in the rough is all about the bow and the Cig bow will definately take bigger water better (wow say that three times) The Donzi bow doesn't have the volume and seems kinda' flat .. like it would slap the water. Also, if things were to get ugly, I want to be tossed from the boat ... I get the feeling when sitting, I would be leaving my legs in the Donzi

G

Boatless ... well, not exactly boatless ... I do have a 1968 Chrysler New Yorker Coupe

In that video clip from the Savanna, july 03 Super vee compitition ,,,,,,,, The Cig won hand's down from the start ..... Smoked everybody in class that day ,,,, Dialed in perfectly ...... The compition seemed to struggle but, the H&H Speed & Marine Cig Flew the whole Way ..... Awsome race ,,,,,,,, Spiderman took second, with Donzi rounding out 3rd ,,,,,,,,, One of the few 3rd's for Donzi that year though ,,,,,,,
