Thanks Buck Buck I have been working with this guy for a week now. He was stuck at a price and so was I. I was looking to steal the boat he was looking to minimize the loss of the 15 grand he had into the motor swap and dash (he got SCREWED!!!!). I had a feeling that it was not going ot last long so I decided to go to his price knowing full well that I can ALWAYS get my money back.

Hell, I'll go buy an aluminum Jon boat tomorrow and launch......
No man we are STILL ON!!!! Unfortunatly I was looking at my boat and I am REAL happy with the way it is coming out but DO NOT want to rush it. So we needed a boat for the summer to run. I wanted something that was fun, cool looking, and would hold its value. I looked at a bunch of different boats but the Donzi was really the only one that fit my criteria.

What kind of speed to you think you will see.
Mitch the easy to keep up was one of the factors to looking at this boat. I think we will get a year out of the interior but even still to have a new one made by the guy that makes them for Donzi is only 1400 and I can get a local guy to do it probably for half that. The big boats are like 6-10K so .....

Power is a stock 330, Drive is TRS, Tabs are Bennets (through bolted thank god.)

The Formula WILL continue, however work is keeping me away from it now. I am WAY over committed at work so nothing has really happened on the Formula for a while now.

What speed will I see, I have no idea but I have heard 70 from a lot of people. Seem high to me but it is a small boat and a lot of power so maybe?

Jon
