Picked up a 73 Donzi 16'. Need to clean and buff the hull, rewire and go through the motor. Water pump, filters, plugs etc.



Add internal hydraulic steering to the Superboat.

Definitely interior. Maybe paint... I can't make up my mind on what I want to do for paint so I'm still debating

I haven't called him yet. Probably in the next week or two.

I'm trying to determine what kind of budget i'm gonna set for myself to do this. My uncle has a lot of contacts up in baltimore (he had the "all funked up" cobra cat that used to race OPA), so i'm gonna see if he can't find me a good low hour 502 drop-in before I go down the $$ path of building a new one.
