    All orginal 1973 X-18 Royal BLue gelcoat, a beautiful boat. I have started to like the x-18 more so than the 18's.

    Here is our new aquisition. 1969 Donzi 18ft. Barrel Back. It is a bit unusual in that it looks very stock from the outside but is upgraded with a bravo outdrive and a very tricked out 302 motor. Don't have a clue as to the speed but she is quick, evident by her name ( Honey Slo Down ).

    No, Geoo has made a few, er, slight changes to his rocket ship. (Giggling madly.) I know I'll miss some boats, but CDMA, Jamesbon, and MOP (?) are also engineering their own little Arnie masterpieces.

    Here's a bit of Geoo's work:

    Jon. Geoo's is the epitomy of MODS and beyond high performance.

    This was NEVER offered, didn't exist back then.

    He has taken a high 60's low 70's boat (at that with a TON of Horsepower!!! , and added this drive and about another 400 HP to reach beyond 800, and now see's 120's.

    There is a "chute" for the driver...This is not a Sunday Church thing.. )

    Wish I owned it.

    Where did you get that smoked windshield? It's not the factory windshield.
    I want to get a windshield for my 18, that looks great.
