    1967 Donzi Ski-Sporter

    Let's see if this works.

    A brief appearance at the end by a special "guest star."

    Great video.
    Boat seems very stable.
    What are you using for mufflers?

    With the camera solidly attached to the boat it does look stable

    I used some 3" mufflers from Rex Marine if I rmember right. They are 10" long so they fit between the Osco exhaust and tips. They work very well and take a lot of the harshness out of normal 3" exhaust bark.

    That is so nice...I could watch that over and over. Really excellent build, now I want to go work on my Ski Sporter, but it will take a lot of hard work to get her in that nice of shape. Thanks for representing for us Ski Sporter guys!

    Bill that is a great clip! Boat looks to have no porpoise and sending a nice flat rooster at speed. What prop are you running now? Try to get Trueser to get some film of you underway. Again, nice to see the build in the water and crankin

    I tried a Grizz Solas (19) I purchased from him 2+ years ago as that was the prop of choice for the previous owner. It will be a good spare prop.

    So far a 14 x 24 lh Ultra is running the best.

    Very nice, Bill! How fast were you going? I remember you expected her to go around 50, looks much faster and I bet she is faster!

    How fast? We are still working some "significant" engine issues, but mid-50s. So far

    Thanks Carl.

    I hope that we can run together one of these days (0nce I get my engine completely sorted out ). I had a chance a few weeks ago to meet Gregg and check out his boat. I love the pictures you posted with the two of your yellow boats together.

    Had I been there, mine could have been the "cute" baby Donzi in the middle.

    Boat is beautiful, and you did a nice job with the camera setup--video looks great. I'm going to have to create a fixed mount like that.
