Currently slowly being restored, Mighty Mouse will return in a slightly detuned state..

Keep in mind the last few runs were 120+, so "detuned" is still fassssst

Absolutely wild in a Donzi 18. My BIL had one that freaked me out at about 70.

From the looks of the dash, You have a X-18 Donzi that was built prior to 1980. The way the boat was running and the amount of steering that was being done looks like she was chine walking. The best thing about the X-18 was the deck design and that was to keep the nose down at high speeds. What year is the Donzi ?? Be interested to know . who knows that might have been I put togetyher in the good old years of Donzi..

George is a great guy. He came to the radar shootout knowing he had the fastest boat in his class. Showed up, very humble, great guy.

Ran the boat - kicked azz - said thank you for all the compliments and everyone "including the labo guys" came running over to check his stuff out and admire.

Thats the difference between class.............and a fat Piney with bad breath from South Jerseywith a 22 Stinger.

Although I always wondered how George fit in his boat with balls the size of of Mount Rushmore?

That boat is sweet to watch run. He brought it to Cumberland a few years ago. I wish Chris would bring it back! Both George and Chris are super nice guys.

I think the year George came he brought his daquiri (sp?) whacker as well. We had a blast!
