    How about a show your engine thread...?

    It sure would be cool to see a thread with everyone posting pics of their engines. Post up guys...


    I like how this is mostly pictures, and low on comments. Some good looking engines!

    this is going to be a cool thread!

    My engine in the GT21- nothing special, but it is special that I got an engine in at least after all the problems...!

    I am guessing you are in Covington Washington? Nice hanger and airplane.
    I am in Gig Harbor. Not a lot of Donzis in our neck of the woods but my first ride was my girlfriend's baby 16...Mercury outboard. She kept it in Cozy Cove on Lake Washington at her aunt's (my mom's best friend) house. Not all that fast but loads of fun. I am now in the process of getting my engine ready for re-installation after #1 son had trailer issues and totaled boat. Long story but Dealer I bought boat from (for display at Seattle Boat show in 1996) borrowed my 1995 18C, then instead of returning to my home took it up to dealership in Kirkland and left it outside during cold hard freeze. Cracked both exhaust manifolds, which they replaced with cheap aftermarket Aqua Power manifolds, and unbeknownst to me also cracked block. That crack was undiscovered until this past summer when engine came out of boat to replace transom assbly and outdrive with a Bravo. Engine built by Chuck DeBois in Totem Lake at C&D Engine Performance.........383 Stroker plus other goodies. Engine goes into paint shop later this month, then pics to post.

    Denis,
    Yes Covington Wa...we are practically neighbors. Sorry to hear about neglected and damaged classic parts, but it sounds like the new engine will be sweet. I'm thinking a local Donzi event sometime in the near future?

    Here's a pic of mine. Takes a while to spool up, but hits pretty hard once it does.
    Why is faster never fast enough.

    Looks nice Jeff, It's fun to see other 16s. By the way, how do you like the hatch strut mounted on your engine hatch, does it function well with the quick detach hinges? (I'm assuming you have the same ones as me)

    Bob,

    The hatch struts work great-- I can detach them quickly if I need to remove the entire hatch. What I need now is a new latch.
