Delivered the boat to Dave last night at 11:00!!!! What a guy to meet me at his shop, on a Sunday night no less.

Bomar deck hatch----gone. New flush deck hatch-----Yes.

When Dave is done, it's ready for a fresh paint graphic project on the deck.

Would love to put some flush hatches on mine but can't justify the cost. I will have to settle with them being refinished in white instead of the black they are now!!

Convert the first 38 Donzi ZRC ever made (hull #001) from a side-by-side bravo set up to a staggered Arneson Asd-7 set up powered by Ilmor 710's. Also do some cosmetic changes as well. Follow updates in the Donzi section.
