Unhappy Hit and Run on the Conn. River

Passing this along for a fellow Donzi owner. Really nice guy. He's been restoring his boat for along time and it means the world to him.Please help if you spot something.

Donzi hit & run

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

David Hartmann who just won the retoration award at the Lake George Donzi Dust-off for his St. Tropez was hit on the CT River yesterday. A 24-28 foot baja type boat hit him at 40-50 mph, while he was stopped and drifting, with 8 people aboard. Luckily no-one was hurt, but his boat sustained some major damage in the bow. He says it set him back at least 100 hours on the restoration. Damage was all above the water line so it didn't sink. The other boat took off without checking to see if they were alright or anything. They are looking for a baja type boat with significant glass damage. Any info contact David by e-mail at [email protected] or call [email protected] 860 944 1210.

I'm glad no one was hurt, but it really sucks that someone would leave the scene of a potentially serious boating accident.

I'll keep my eye out. Thats terrible news about the Donzi. I've seen that boat and it's really cool. Do you know it was definitly a Baja and if so colors?? I know most of the performance boats in the area and may be able to help out. Also where did it occur on the river???

I hate to hear that some azz would do that.

I'm happy to hear that no one was hurt though. Hopefully someone knows who it is.

Maybe the cops should do something about this instead of handing out noise tickets
