Kyle,
Congrats, can't wait to see it. I'm going to work on the Nordic this weekend so I can have it ready when you get the Donzi up to Harbortown!

I am hoping to be up on the 23rd, but might have to put it off until the 30th

You going to do the Daytona Poker Run?

When is the Daytona Poker Run? I doubt that we'll be able to make it, I'm in the beginning of remodeling our masterbath, so that consumes alot of my time on the weekends. Plus, our next big boating outing is Memorial Day up on the St. John's River @ Hontoons! Are you getting a trailer with your new Donzi?

I don't have my calendar ... but I am pretty sure it is the weekend of the 21st, 22nd (May). The days may be off by one or two, but it is the weekend just before Memorial Day Weekend.

No trailer. It has one, but we made the deal without it. I drive a BMW 5 Series and the fiance has a BMW Z4 so I doubt we could even tow a jetski. Our plans are to just leave it at the marina. We can always hire someone to move it if it had to go too far.

I'd say 23 Mirages will get you upper 60's and 25s will get you low 70s.
I looked at a 29' Scarab with 350's that had 21" Lasers on them.

Really? Not saying they won't work but those are small diameter props for smaller boats(I think merc says 21' and under).

kswest,
Welcome to Merritt Island. Dean and I do a lot of boating together and it will be really great to have another performance boater in the area. Sounds like you will be in the area in a couple of weeks? Give us a shout and we will try to get together. Perhaps an adult beverage at HarborTown?

I should have it up here two weeks from today. I think I have Dean's number in a PM, I'll give you guys a call when I finally make it.

... Starts counting the hours ...

congrats on the boat. i always liked the 28zx., i looked at one when i was looking but they were too much cash for me at the time. good luck with her and i hope all goes well. i would have got the trailer though. and i think you made a good choice. i like the blue one.
