Here are some pics of our 1969 18 FT. Barrel Back. Couldn't resist a few extra pics of the back end with all the goodies resting there. There is a Bravo drive hanging off a juiced up Ford 302 engine. We are trying to keep it as original looking from waterline up. Then you open the hatch and WOW. My husband calls it a sleeper. Rose

I think it's a Hynautic ram.

Rose, what kind of steering set up is that on the transom ? That is a single hydraulic ram, that came from a dual setup. Just finishing up a few add ons. The hydraulic steering and the K-Planes. That ought to keep it in the water. Before those it could get a bit squirrelly. R

Hey Donzi Rose!

Very nice ride! I noticed a Lazer Cam decal. How did you happen across him? I had one of his cams in my 502 and loved it!

Hey Donzi Rose!

Very nice ride! I noticed a Lazer Cam decal. How did you happen across him? I had one of his cams in my 502 and loved it!Will let Tom handle this one. We purchased the boat with all the goodies already inside. Just now finishing the hydraulic steering & the k-planes. I will say that the one time we have had this bad boy in the water, the brappity brap cam will definately hit a lick. The best I have ever heard. Some of the donzi enthusiast thought it sounded like someones souped up 502cu in Donzi. Not bad for a little ole 302. The previous owner had done quite a bit of racing and put the motor together. I still can't believe what he had in it $ wise. I am embarrassed to say what the horsepower output he said it was putting out, but it was awesome the one weekend we enjoyed it. Definately needed something to keep it in the water and also to keep the outdrive true with no wibble wobble. We bought the boat to finish it up and then? Thanks for the comments and also many thanks to Boxy for putting the pics up. Tom & Rose
