The extreme "cab forward" design have anything to do with the Donzi spinning out quiet often??

Seems the center of gravity is too far forward not to mention that cab forward is not the most attractive layout for boats. OK for a Lambo of Ford GT though.

Wow, that's a pretty loaded statement; care to provide some details on 38ZR's spinning out "quite often"? I can only think of one incident in a race 38ZR and the root cause looked to be a failure on one of the drives. That was OSO member audacity's boat.

I'd certainly like to know more about these "quite often" spinouts!

Lets expand this a bit to include the 38' Skater.

Let's not. All bets are off once you mix in the Skater. I think it's a 39 though isn't it?

Went on a test ride in the Donzi last year at the Miami Boat Show.Most impressive boat I have ever been in.The water was rough also .Not been in the Cig. but they sure look nice.

The Skater can't be considered ... it's a prototype and the others are production.
