ok parn fess up lets hear what saber did you get your hands on, just heard it through the grape vine you just purchased another one. If knew you were in the market I would have pushed mine a little harder at hot boat. I also need to get with you on that donzi v-drive we talked about that i have been trying to sell.

Hey Parnell,
Ken/DONZI here.
Had to pull the starter/header on this Saber yesterday .On your 21 with the same bbc/ mini starter, did you end up making any mods to it or use a certain one?? This starter/ drive doesn't engage full depth on the ring gear.
Thanks Ken !
Give my well wishes to the family and i'll see you in the Spring.

P.S. Dont leave Zach unattended at any more auctions.Items can get expensive ya know ! L.O.L.

hahah well their was no driving through the 1st set up, the boat would strat to pull right out of the water = leap out. at 3''. Iam going out with the spacer and 380 planes and trying it. to see if a little tab stops the porpoise. if not then trying the full lower. if it works ,then I need to buy it. I'll post the pics today of what we have.

the lil guy is getting big hahah, mikey says ( hey dad whats with the trs on the donz man!!! you have two konrads kickin around. I think we should put one one the donz, so I can go really faster dddaddyyyyyy!!!) I second that jon put one of the rads on the donzi to see if it runs faster and flies level. I miss riding in that think. oh I think its the bottom, maybe some grinding and filling in the spring.

Will see what these do.



hey they look backwards hahaha, but really thanks Gerry and Ken. you guys made me cry or maybe it what I was doing that made me cry. I hope running them will slow or stop the bounce. if not we use the regular lower. which will = 4.75'' under the keel. right now we are at 4''. my x is 17'' or 17 1/2''. stock was 14'' I think. I am to much pain to try a run to day, plus I want to see if we can get the stern lifting prop monday.
