Every year during the Sunnyland Antique & Classic Boat Festival an award is presented for the most unique individual of the show. It's called "The Big Woody Award".

We (Woody Boater) are recommending to the folks at the Sunnyland ACBS thatthis years Big Woody Award is presented to Burt Harris who brought with him avery cool Donzi 14' Baby.

We also have a few very nice photos of the Donzi Baby (namedPacifier) on the water that we are planning to use for our story on WoodyBoater on Sunday AM re the award. The award will be presentedmid-morning on Sunday.

We would sure appreciate it if you could post a link on the Donzi RegistryForum so we can help Burt celebrate.

SAMIAM , Cass and me letting the Baby Donzi's kiss each other goodby. The yellow Baby is heading
for the north. Went to Sam's Garage in Minnesota. He will post when he gets home. This was today April 2 at 9:00 AM so he should be north of Georgia by now.

Any idea where it is going? Also, any idea on the sale price? Interested in determining what a "market value" is on these low turnover Baby's.

The Baby is going to be happy now (happier).
Just picked this up today.
NOS and for 4 cylinder Mercruiser too. How lucky is that. I love Craigslist !! (actually my friend Cadillac sent the listing to me, thank you Cadillac!!!!)

-----Well Bert,,,, You have been busy havent you? Has the other project been picked up yet???.......Bill S

Picking it up this week or next for sure. Had the trailer bearings done and new cypress bunks made at Magic Tilt trailers.
My friend is a district mangler and he did me a favor on the bunks, They are 12' long by 12" deep 24 degree wedge and carpeted. I was going to do it myself but turns out there is an easier way. Buy it !!!!
Looks awesome. Can't wait.
And you? Have you taken your Fino out?
I know, the weather is bad. Ever notice, when you get a new convertible, motorcycle, bike, go kart or a boat the weather turns ugly.
Its the God of cool stuff. He can make or break opening day. Don't forget the camera please.

[ QUOTE=$originalposter]{$pagetext}[/QUOTE]Bert, I am looking forward to progress reports from your next project. I made it back to Iowa and am gearing up for our season on Lake Okoboji. Give me a call when you get a chance!

Boat home. Both engines (454 340 HP Mercruisers) have had top end overhaul. New carbs too. Tanks polished and cleaned. All systems go for this week end. At that time I will post some pictures. Can't wait. It is a big day for me.
