Parnell Parn just curious are you talking about having a Donzi event here in are area which would be the Grand haven /Spring lake / Holland area ? Parn, and if so i can not think of a better area to hold such an event considering this area is such a very huge boating community which offers great accommoditations , food and spirts along with lake Mich to boot .

You do not need to join each Donzi club in order to participate. Every club on this forum extends an open invitation to any Donzi owner to participate in their events. For over a decade, folks on this board have been attending events all over the country. Some events have registration fees, and some events are just show up with your boat (or ride along with folks there if you can't bring your boat or are "between" boats.

There are some far more "formal" boat clubs out there that do a series of poker runs, such as Poker Runs America, and the Florida Powerboat Club. These are generally high dollar events with high roller players. But there is always plenty of room for entries for non-members. However, these are not specifically Donzi clubs.

There are also individual events sponsored by local boat clubs that anyone can enter.

Generally, almost all of the events of interest get posted on this board in the events section. You generally get several months of notification ahead of any event, so just cruise the Events section weekly to pick up new event postings. Once January gets here and the cabin fever gets ugly up north, the event plans start popping up.

But if you can't wait until Spring: http://www.flpowerboat.com/#events

Don't even entertain the Poker Runs America, boat is too small,(unless they have changed from last year). But you can watch at the Thousand Islands and watch them fly by at 100 MPH plus.

Are there any Poker Runs that 18's can participate in safely? I've only ran in Central Florida lakes, will be venturing into the East and West Coast Florida Intercoastals this Summer, and Peace River/Gulf area around Punta Gorda Florida area possibly to get a litlle "Big Water" experience.
Didn't know if the 18's would be safe for say the Naples or Florida Keys type of Poker Runs. These all looked like they were for larger (30' +) boats.
Any comments, thoughts, or personal experiences?

Thanks,
Sid

Do you mind telling me the name of the previous owner? I think I know who it may be, but I'm curious what he is getting as a replacement.

I know Jim and the boat. You got a very well cared for boat. Do you know if he was getting another Donzi?

Fishermanjm

yea i dont think jim really wanted to sell the boat, i think i bought it on the last day of his commitment with jackson marine. I have been in touch with him asking him several questions about the boat. Last i know he was going to get into a much smaller boat. He is a real cool guy
