Fun chit.
You are a braver man than me climbing back in there again. I have a couple people chatting to me about getting into the super boat big time but then I think of Christopher Reeves. I have come to too far to try to screw up what little bit there is remaining.

Not my Donzi, but I always liked this old picture. Check out face on the dude in the back!

Chuck,
I contacted Popular Mechanics and they sent me a brand new copy of that issue for you. It came in the mail yesterday. PM me your address and I'll throw it in the mail.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Craig

Top Pic in Post #96, the guy in the center is reaching back for a cold beer!


Check out the bottom of the Yellow Donzi in pic # 97. That poor boat had seen some hard times before that kid came along.

#96 - I can hear the guy in the back, "Dude, TURN, TURN, I don't think we'll clear that!!!" The dude in the front, "I'm AM, I'm TURNING, but it won't move!!"

I've seen that picture before and now that I look at it and see it's from michigan i think i reconize it.There was a yellow DONZI on sprink lake ,michigan in the early 70's named FOXY LADY, it was one of the very few around at the time.The kid was a maniac in the thing.My older brothers looked at him with envy until they talked dad into dumping the slickcraft and buying a 26 MONZA.Than we became the maniacs!
