Sweet, but what's up with everyone winterizing already? Indian summer is coming!

Well I don't live up in Lake George all year long and I never am 100% sure when the next time I will be up will be. I'd rather be prepared than be rushing to get the boat out sometime.

Nice looking Donzi. We'll have to get together next summer on Lake George. FYI, I'm planning on running mine next weekend, then she is getting put away too.

Gorgeous boat. I think the 009 styling is superb.

But I think we all hate you for your boathouse... :)

I saw a young fella playing with it over there picnic weekend, around the B L area, several times. He was having fun with it, in the ruff stuff :). He was doing well with it. That was me that waved to U-2 on Sunday afternoon, in the white/ black 18 by TC. Don N ( red 22c ) + I had ran up to see "roger", didnt quite make it all the way "up". We were the last 2 standing for the picnic weekend. Nice boat!

That Cigarette in the background isn't mine actually (I wish haha). And that young fella was probably me, I look younger than I am. I launched at Performance Marine and then circled around a few of you guys, took off and ran with you guys for a bit, and then turned into the boathouse. Yes I remember I was heading north when you were heading south towards Treasure Cove with another red Donzi.

Kirbyvv- I don't think I will be up next weekend sorry. I will most likely be up in two weeks.

Good lookin' boat! Not to through a wrench in your post....but I'm sure the TG has pop-up cleats.

Step it up Donzi....would've been nice also, one within driver and passengers reach seeing how there's no SS rail.

Not sure what you mean by the pop up cleats... If you're saying that Cig doesn't have them, if you look closely they are there they just aren't popped up. I also don't understand what you mean on the step it up Donzi line.

Yes...The Cig has them and unfortunately, Donzi apparently didn't have the same vision. That's all....

Oh, I see what you mean now. I mean I actually thought about getting them installed on the right and left sides of the windshield (pop up) but I didn't think it would look as good and sleek with them. Donzi played it safe on the looks, which I am fine without them... Getting up on the bow to tie a rope is worth the good looking design.

Pop up's were an option, not sure when it started though. Considering they have been around at least 20 years it should have been standard issue just like gauge bezels. I am going to remove my stern cleats and either just fill in the holes or install pop-ups. I use the lifting rings instead but I would like a midship set.
