    Default I may have to change my hobbies....

    So....
    My aunt and uncle came by this evening for dinner. They handed me a folder with the title and paperwork to a 1968 Donzi X18. *r etardo

    WTF! I've never received such a cool gift in my life! I'm so thrilled, I'm beyond words. They have owned the boat since new and has been living in a garage most of it's life. Not that I need another money pit hobby but,,,, WOW!

    Check out this video....

    Adam,

    That should make it easier to find a shark to mount your laser to!

    Laser (the acronym derived from Light Amplification by Stimulated Emissions of Radiation) is a spectacular manifestation of this process. It is a source which emits a kind of light of unrivaled purity and intensity not found in any of the previously known sources of radiation. - Lasers & Non-Linear Optics, B.B. Laud.

    No Doubt! I have never received such a cool gift! I think this boat is more evil than even me! Ever since I was a little kid, I thought the thing was cool. Now It's mine!

    I wish I knew... I'm pretty sure the engine is a Ford 351 and I know it has some upgrades but I'm not sure exactly what. I'll be going there with a camera to take some photos soon. I don't even have a vehicle with a trailer hitch anymore. Gotta figure out that one first.

    This is definitely the truth. The happiest days of a boat owners life are the day he gets the boat and the day he gets rid of it.

    Really though, congratulations! Boating is a hell of a lot of fun on the rare occasion where everything works out well, just never forget to winterize.
