    Smile Fantastic find!

    Haven't kept up with the forum lately, but beautiful things are happening. Congratulations Bill. Seems like You and Greg have founded a dream team. You keep finding gems like these and you'll be the Jay Leno of boating. Can't wait to see some video of your fleet in action this season. Keep it up. Warmed my heart to see this.

    Cheers, Lars.

    Hi Lars,
    Thank you for making notice of the newest member of my family of boats - . If it all turns out like I think it will, it will be the best deal I probably ever made on buying a boat. I actually bought it for a friend while he was out of the country for a month on a trip, but when he got home he told me he had bought a Donzi 22' in Florida that his brother found for him. I am actually glad it all worked out like it did! What boat or boats do you have right now? You always have something different and cool. Bill

    Unhappy No fleet of boats.

    Wow, I know this is a Donzi forum and all, but it would take quite a 22 to make me chose it over this Warlock. Well, not like he had a choice and the merrier for you.
    I only have the Schiada left now. After the bounce back from our re-location attempt to Sweden I wasn't sure were to settle down in The U.S. again. Going through those motions and a few failed investment ventures I found myself with a couple of starved piggybanks and decided to sell my Stoker 204SST and the Flying Flipper 29'. Not too happy with myself at the moment, but I'm eyeing a 1987 Larry Smith Team Scarab 26 and when the owner lets go I'm ready. He's thinking it over

    I am really sorry to hear about your business investment ventures and not getting to move to Sweden right now. Are you presently in California? I hope things turn back around for you this year. As long as a diehard boater has at least one wave buster, he should probably be content - right? The Larry Smith Scarab will be icing on the cake so I hope you get it .

    Same here Lars, one of life's major speed bumps (I had a big one this week) but keep the faith. You will rebound for sure. You always have some great history on various unique boats, I really enjoy reading what you come up with on those history pieces. If you are back in Cali maybe we should have you find the elusive Tom Stolarz. You could get the full run down of these Team Warlock's. He would probably remember Bill's boat as it was in fact a special order (found my notes) for gelcoat colors. The rumor is that he also made two OB Team Warlock 23's working with Yamaha for the introduction of there stout 220 Special. He is rumored to be in the greater Corona area these days. I would think just about 70. I was thinking of calling Ken Burns to have him do a docu-drama!

    Bill, when you sort out your (don't forget I have first dibs!) new 23 I have two folks you might want to eyeball. One is running a Spinelli 4 blade and clocking 92mph on a Team Warlock 23 Offshore, and the other is running a stock Bravo 1 wheel and laying down 86mph on GPS with a Team Warlock 24 Euro. Should be interesting to see how your 23 Offshore runs

    What kinda power? 600ish? These things are fantastically efficient for the amount of deadrise.

    23 MCOB with subtle graphics (preferably blue), XR, HP500, and a big stereo is starting to call my name...

    Can't wait to hear how this one runs on Texoma. Get after it Bill!

    There is no Team Warlock 23 Offshore with a mid cabin open bow.
    The 92mph GPS number was clocked with a 540 making 680hp and 700lbs of torque not that I understand if these are good or bad #'s. Remember though that these hulls weigh 1350lbs naked.

    Breaking 90 in a 23 at that power level is still impressive; I actually thought it would be in the 600-650 range.

    The later 23 XRI are still good runners, right? Never liked Left Coast boats in the past but I'm kinda coming around. Unfortunately Donzi ain't so great in the speedy bowrider department until you get to the 35ZR, and clearly that's not happening.

    I need a bowrider for as long as my daughter is willing to hang out on the boat with us. After that, going to a bigger boat with twins and a stabbin' cabin!

    Lars, you may have some insights on this as your friend had a rare Howard "23 Offshore" I believe. There is some confusion over the origins of the 23's from Team Warlock and Howard. This is only my opinion based on some research but I believe that Gene at Howard somehow developed his 23 Offshore (only 12 made?) by starting with the purchase of a 1985 Crusader 23 and then adding a delta pad. Do you know if this is accurate? On the other side, I believe that Team Warlock founder Tom Stolarz, seeing that the Crusader 23 hull was winning so many races in 1985, decided to build his own version and thus designed the Team Warlock 23 "Offshore" to compete. In my quest for useless facts about Warlocks on a Donzi site, Stan told me that Stolarz had been very competitive on the race course and was known as a fearless warrior and that he did the Team Warlock hull bottom from scratch. He used that same racing ethos when designing the 23 Offshore in 1986 for first build in early 1987. He felt he could be very competitive with bigger boats on the race course. I believe that turned out to be accurate.

    Any comments appreciated should you come back by the site Lars. Greg
