Damn Donzi is in Bricktown at Lightning Jacks marina. John Wooley is the owner, He also races the Lightning Jacks Skater Cat. Damn Donzi won the World Championship then in the last two years of her running she was all busted up stringers and she was running sloppy, The boat is like an Icon to John he may have her For Sale but he just wont give her away! As far as who is going to race the 38, I wonder if Steve Simon is going to take a shot at it again, He raced for Scarab, and he designed the 38 Donzi. You never Know!

A friend of mine who just took worlds in his class said he was asked to throttle for the boat but said if it didnt hit about 96 he would just go back to his boat because the Donzi wouldnt be fast enought to win only compete.

Damn Donzi did flip thats when the stringer blew apart in Key West, She one the championship in 1998. Never look at the first test run of a boat,88 mph is damn impressive from a boat that has not been modified at this point. After they run the boat they rework the the bottom to giver the boats more speed. I talked to Steve Simon and he said that boat will be running in the 90s with 2 500s when they are done with her. There also looking to make a Poker Run edition that will run well in to the 100s.

The best of luck to them. I hope they clean up. Nice to see another well known name jump into racing. Now if speed channel or whatever they are going to call themselves will just show it on TV. . . . .

Your 100% right Mroffshore, They have to earn the respect of all the other fellow Factory II boat manufactures. Baja in conjunction with Skater have just built a Factory II ride also. It hasn't been run yet.It's gonna be a very competitive season

A Lake X dial in should improve the numbers and there is bottom blueprinting prop adj's to dial everything in for shure.

I asked the same question on the 33 test report. I have factory test reports of a 33 Daytona with HP500's that did 84 on Radar/GPS. The Test reports with 502's and 496HO on Radar/GPS was 72-74 Miles per hour. Speedvision did a test on a 38ZX that did 75MPH on GPS. That is a 12000 LB boat. I am not questioning the Magazine report but it just did not make sense compared to these valid reports and 1100 Horsepower on board. As for the price the exact boat is in Montea Virginia with an asking price of $250,000.00. As discussed previously the other day MSRP is BS! The Fountain numbers were awesome. Looks like the changes they made were helpful. See YA!

I guess whoever wrote that Reggie sold his helicopter must have known the real deal, Fountain must have used the money for R&D.
Good move, impressive numbers....
