Thant boat comes to Mount Dora I believe.. Never knew what it had for power, but it moves pretty well..

I'll have to try and trade him a ride in a Donzi for a ride in it next year

Mark has also put rolls royce engines in his boats. At 1800 rpm, you are cruising!

Mark sure has some beautiful boats! A few years back I was on Winni late in the season and he was out in the Rolls Royce powered Gold Cup boat. The workmanship was stunning. Very talented man.
