I bought the boat in 1984 from Maurice Lapierre in Shelburne, Vermont. He is the original owner. He used the boat on Lake Champlain for three years and then stored it in his garage until I bought it. The boat is all original and in beautiful condition except the Volvo 200 outdrive. It's white with a powder blue stripe and seats. The engine cover is the three door type that was on the earliest built. Under the deck behind the guages is written the S/N 18-75, the date 6-27-66, and the name Bill and initials PDI.The outdrive and the fuel tank where the only things it really needed replaced. The outdrive was a Volvo 200 which I replaced with the 270. I regrettably sold the boat in 1987. I needed the money. A number of years later I saw an ad for a Donzi that sounded like my boat and with unbelievable luck it was. Needless to say, I bought it back. It still is all original but the gelcoat has really weathered. I plan on respraying the gelcoat and will be doing this as soon as I get the boat indoors.
