Nice boat. They handle rough water great for a 22 foot boat if you use the tabs.

The red stripe on my 22 gets real hot in the sun. I couldn't imagine the whole boat being red and walking around on the deck barefooted, but it sure is purrty!

I had a red boat and I made sure I had gloves and shoes on when I went out on the deck.

I like white upholstery with red piping and red carpet in a red boat.

And I understand the Arneson drive works very well on these little Donzis.

I have had & been in just about all of the Donzi line up. I have also done poker runs in my 18c & my last 22c. They are a phenominal boat. Actually you usually only need the tabs at about 45-50 ish mph.. Then once you neutral the drive you can raise the tabs & run like the wind. My last 22c (a 2006) I owned would hit about 75-76mph.. That was with a bit more power than this one.. I think I will have to do something about that tho.. lol Jamie / Lakeside

I am probably going to convert the interior in our shop over to a savannah beige. The red can be hot, but my last 22c had a black stripe which was really hot to touch on a hot day.. lol

The arneson can & does work well on many of the Donzi lines.

Sweet ride,
I had been thinking about a smaller runabout like the 18 Donzi but I think I am going back to my jet-boat days, but some thing a little safer like an Eliminator pickle fork, 800NA hp

That was confusing, I meant safer than the v-hull jetboats I used to have

Thanks.. I love the 22's I have had them in the past & knew I would enjoy this one again. We have put some big power in them too. I am not sure if I will just build up this 454 in my shop, or if I will drop in a 525 or one of our custom engines.. I have the winter to think about it.. lol.. The nice thing is they can definitely haul azz & handle the power.. Jamie / Lakeside
