As some of you know, I sold my 22 Classic after fighting the King Cobra woes. I bought a 265 Seebold Eagle, but I just missed owning a Donzi.....


I sold the Seebold today, and went and bought a 1982 18' Classic. Its a 2 owner boat, new interior, original gel (white with black stripe), FWC Mercruiser 260 (alpha i'm assuming?), thru hull. Stringers were re-done in 2005. Boat is missing the front lifting eye, so if anyone has one of those laying around let me know.


I will post pics in the AM. Pretty excited to enjoy our last 75deg day on lake wa tomorrow.

Nice, sounds good. Maybe I can get some helpful hints for driving the boat.

Were you looking for an 18?

Wow - you're a crazy man. What is that, 3 boats in 3 years?

Good luck with the 18. I suspect Lenny was of no influence what so ever in the decision...:wink:

Agreed, Buiz. Time is of the essence now!

Congrats on the new Donzi. Hope you enjoy it. 18's are a little squirrelly, but a lot of fun. A true "driver's boat," if you will.

Get one of the "pop-up" lifting eyes...I think they are cheap around $500 :shocking:
