Hey no comment from the penut gallery!!!

The Donzi was my old tried and true. I could always just drop that in off the lift and run it. Last time out at a poker run I landed off a good size wave and the carb went skitzo on it. I hope that i have a spare at the shop. If not the Formula has some doners on it

I just wish I had a place to work on mine .I live in my girlfriends townhouse in a highend gated community.God I miss my garage that I used to have.

Mine runs but it needs an interior and rewire.It has been sitting so long. 13 years since I put the new motor in.

This is the Sunkin money thread.

I sunk way too much money in a Excalibur project that never saw the water, pulled the plug on it and started all over with a Sutphen.

http://www.offshoreonly.com/forums/s...d.php?t=172819

This started in 2003! Fortunately, the Sutphen is approaching completion. The engines are finally in. Just need to get the risers made up (and a dozen or two other little details).

If I hadn't picked up an old 22' Velocity CC on Craigslist this summer, I think I would be totally insane at this point.

We got pretty close to being done with our 4 year project. Ran it a few times and even posted a video on youtube.

Things are going GOOD!
Then out of nowhere my luck catches up with me.....

Two weeks ago I'm running a buffer on our fishing boat and my knee blows out. Had surgery last Monday and I'm out of commission a few more weeks. Can't work and can't use the boat.
Now I have parts stacked up on the porch ready to go in the Apache that I can't install until my knee is better. Labor day weekend is shot and cool weather is around the corner.
June and July were fun though!
