Most people would want nothing to do with it, however if I found it I'd love to have it. Oh and the steering wheel was on the port side. If not I'd like a similiar 18 one day. Below are two pics of the boat. The one is the picture taken after the accident in NY Harbor and the other is the bestinterior shot I have. MY father is standing on the back and the rest is my sister and mom. IM the goody little kid on the backseat.

    I remember that boat VERY well as I grew up in Harvey Cedars. It was on a canal in Loveladies forever and I would see it out on the bay very often. There were only a few go-fasts back then on Barnegat Bay. My friend's Uncle owned the other 76 18 yellow Donzi which he kept at The Boat Yard in Cedars and there was another yellow 21 Hornet there too. I think I thought all Donzis were yellow growing up. I remember as a teenager wondering what happened to the boat and somebody telling me the story. Unfortunnately I too heard the driver was decapitated going between a barge, etc. Guess that is how it went around the island(sorry). I never saw the boat again nor for sale anywhere. Try the other Donzi sites as well, somebody has to know. PLEASE keep us posted and keep bumping this as I too am interested with the outcome as like I said I remember this boat very well.

    My grandparents house was on Holly Drive it sold in 1997. Thanks for all the input. That Donzi in NH looks like it however the steering wheel on my dads was on the port side. That one looks to be starboard. Thanks again guys.

    The boat was traded in by my grandfather to Merit Marine in Brant Beach (now Marine Max) for Sea Ray. Unfortunately Merit has no records of it that long ago.

    May have found your boat?

    I spotted this boat last week on vacation during a beer run crossing the 34th street Bridge. Give them a call who knows it may be your boat and could be for sale? Last registration was 2010 last winterized 2012/13 winter and the ownerís last name is Wilson. Itís a 1970ís port side steer for sure and looks to be in decent condition. Sorry to see it sitting outside uncovered however the hull did have a shine. There were several deep gouges in the gel coat and it is a yellow boat.

    I would not doubt that. Tuckerton may be a good place to search.

    How certain are you about the year model? The clamshells look like the older style to me. I am not an expert, but the two 76's I have been around (EricH's & Krakmeup's) had the newer style with the black plastic bottom.
