Default NEW PROJECT!!!

Just made a deal last night on a 1969 Donzi Ski Sporter (Sweet 16).
No motor or drive. The hull has just been re-furbished & the deck is a mess but, I plan to install a mahogany deck!

I have to pick it up on Long Island NY.

This one should be cool!

Okay,
It looks like the trailer for this boat is a POS. The seller will only knock off $100 for it. I can't really get it across the boarder so, I have to borrow a trailer. Not the easiest job this time of year!

Hey Sean did you get your project boat from the states ? If not I know where there is a Donzi knock off hull that looks in good shape , and it has a double axle trailer for about $1500.00 . Motor and out drive were just removed but everything else is there. I am tempted but I just don't have room Two boats and one project boat is about all the wife will live with.

Yes, this Ski Sporter is from Long Island NY. I have not picked it up yet (planning the weekend of the 16th).It's nice because the hull has already been done. The deck has had a lot of work also but, I don't think I'm using it.

Is the trailer decent on Donzi splash? I need a trailer!!!
You can e-mail; me details dcsconroy@gmail.com
Thanks S.

heading to Long Island next weekend. Think I may have found a trailer to buy for the Donzi. If so, I can put the Greavette away for the winter (it's snowing today) and have one less thing to worry about for next weekend.
