Default has anyone heard of hull problems on the new Donzi's

Specifically the 38 zr? Iím talking about stress cracks near the front on the bottom, and back on the underside of the transom.

No but if there is a problem, I would like to hear more. Need facts. Pictures etc. Tell us what you know if it you can support what you are saying.

i would like to see if anyone else has heard of or had any problems and then i'll be more than happy to post pictures and all the info that i have about it, the shop it is at is very well respected and he is one of the best in the repair business.
im really interested to see if this is a one boat thing or if there is more than just one and i certainly don't want to run Donzi's name through the mill if this is just a freak thing on one boat. im sure you understand why i don't want to just start posting things that could be taken the wrong way.

You could say that. he's almost at the point of buying an outerlimits or cigg top gun, and we have only used the Donzi about 8 times

What is Donzi saying? I would think it would be covered under warranty?

nope, never. it doesn't even get towed for more than 1/8 mile from the ramp to our house.

No problems with GetDown it looks great and will run with the best of them. Been racked stored by a very good marina in Sarasota and hauled all over. Please tell us more.
