Hey Guys,

My mechanic buddy called me wanting to know if I was interested in another Donzi project. My instant response was H*ll NO! lol...

It's a 1976 16 footer with a one year old 200HP E tech. I think the current owner bought the two items, boat and motor separate. He also purchased the boat without getting a survey. My friend has done a general assessment of it and it needs new stringers and a transom, it's wet and soft. Everything else is in pretty good shape, I'm working on getting some pics. Can you guys put a ballpark figure on what the value of this project boat would be? After reading posts here, I've gleamed that these OB versions are somewhat rare and desirable to the right people. If it does go on the market, and it probably will, I'm going to try to get my friend to convince the owner to let me post it here. Thanks guys.
