Looking to find a home for our 16 listed in the Classified section
If anyone knows a candidate that will understand the effort, costs and skill of my crew that put it together, I would look forward to a sea trial to show them what we created
thanks

I rode alongside this boat on Lake Michigan. The quality of Parnell's work is well known.

One question:

Where did the name "Sweet Cheekz" come from ...

I can't believe that this has not sold yet. I'd bring it to BJ or Mecum.

81-82mph set up if I remember correctly.


383 small block 475 hp with 60 hours. Alpha SS with spare std alpha plus assorted other drive parts. Full deck off restoration well documented on this board. Significant expense incurred to create a very fast, safe, great riding 16 with many custom features. Needs absolutely nothing, turn key reliable boat ready to go!

Call for a list of features, videos, hundreds of pictures, and references on this one of a kind Donzi. $27,500

It's going to take someone who loves performance and understands what I've done to it and sees value in that. In the mean time I ran it 70 miles in Lake Michigan last weekend and had a blast
