    So this is a Donzi!

    I hadn't seen this YouTube video before. As a newbie to the helm of a Classic 22, I thought it to be a pretty good description of my experience so far...getting used to properly trimming her out and setting her up for different wave patterns coming up..."a drivers' boat."

    Pretty funny comments follow about Tony Soprano showing the boat and the boats name, "Stugots".

    Kinda felt for the dealer--seemed like the rook said about everything he could to discourage buyers. Glad they are being built again.

    Donzi is the original go-fast offshore boat. Back in the 1970's, Don Aronow, founder of Donzi, basically invented the speedboat genre, and Donzi's were the fastest boats around.

    With all the other stuff (like you point out), I was actually shocked to hear Jim Wynne's name.

    Bill, I laughed at that too, and said to myself that in 30 seconds I could get it to at least 66. (They switched seats and exactly that happened.)

    That's a pretty boat. I can't believe how excited the guy is going 60 mph. 🙄
