As ClassCig38 (my wife) said I do still have my 69 18' Donzi 2+3
I have as much fun if not more on that boat as my 38 Cig. They are the best riding 18 foot boat I ever rode in. I use it on Lake Michigan all the time. And those that have been on the big lake know it can get rough, but I always made it back to the ramp. What ever you do don't sell it. Its like having an old corvette.
If you like it rough do it OFFSHORE!!!

Default Donzi

I always loved them, My dad had one and its the name the resale and no matter were you go everyone knows what a Donzi is, Its funny people that don't know boats no Donzis because of they always show up on TV or the Movies, Charlies Angels, Spy Kids and Nash Bridges, also years ago they showed up in James Bond Movie, Just like Cigarette and Scarab.

My Boats: '88 Formula F-206 LS

After two seasons of playing on the jet-ski's the wife suggested we start looking for a boat. Maybe spend a season just looking around.
That same day we spotted this Formula F-206 LS for sale in a Walmart parking lot . The wife fell in love with it. Called the owner and aranged to meet him to go out for a trial. That's all it took. We made him an offer that day and picked it up a week later.
So much for looking.
We like the way she rode, handled and it's styling.
The more I look at Formula's, the more I like them.

That's one good looking setup.

As far as picking a boat, I would have to say Price!! Used Baja are great for the money.

Kaamacat I never knew that Wellcraft made a cat. It looks really classic. Tell us a bit about it.

Looks, ride, comfort, speed, resale value (for when I trade up)

I looked at a lot of used boats 3-10 years old, the Formulas were always in the best shape.
