We will take plenty of pictures and post them at www.woodyboater.com (http://www.woodyboater.com) and when asked where more information may be had about donzi boats we will tell them to try Donzi.net for a starting point. We always ask if the know of it. Most don't and thank us for the information. Matt from woodyboater will be at Tavares as he always is so look for all the Donzi action versus the wood action live as it happens. We will also be at www.pbregatta.com (http://www.pbregatta.com) the 20 of Fen (less than 2 weeks away). They are excited that the Hornet and the Baby will be there for the festivities this year.

Guess this is the line up. This is a great show. You can go out and ride all day right in front of the show and there is no shortage of interest. If you have never been this is a must attend at one point.

Hi ken!
Wish you could have been here!
Yes a large decal, an idea from the mind of Lanie! We kicked it around for about 2 weeks before we decided on a design. The decal was printed on vinyl w/a clear layer bonded to it. The black Donzi lettering has a carbon fiber like surface.

Very cool idea.

Maybe next year I will make it down.

Too many irons in the fire right now.

Mike, it ran very well considering it just turned over 8 hours.....probably 4 of those are on the hose.
There's still a few details to iron out but I'm pleased.

Good turn out. 7 Donzi's in the show and several milling around that did not attend the show. A really cool 223 Formula and a Firefox too.

Looks like Walt Walters was well represented.

All of the Donzis, the Fino, the Commander (hull is a Lancer derivative)
and the Formula 233.
He is smiling from above. I miss him.
