    I like the old Nova boats, well built craft. Always flush the engine well and use marine head gaskets, they have stainless in place of regular steel. Same goes for thermostats, totally different than car stuff, but I've seen them fitted and destroy the engine in one run. Car stuff doesn't belong on a boat motor even tho they fit, the results can be deadly to the motor and people. My Donzi has a 351W which I believe is original (1990) and still going strong. Exhaust manifolds will be the first to rot and often give the impression of a head gasket, water on plugs and in the oil. I've seen engines replaced/repaired because of bad manifolds because they didn't know it wasn't an engine problem. You could fit it with a closed cooling system, but unless you put a lot of time on salt or refuse to flush out it'll never pay for itself.

    Just noticed this thread. Lots of nice boats and interesting types from across the country. Here's my desert cruiser, fun for the family and pretty good for fishing too. Searay, 18.5'

    Thanks. I'm not for sure on the boat... dry weight is probably about 2000lbs, say 3000lbs loaded, with trailer. But the tongue is surprisingly heavy, like at least 300 lbs. I don't like to tow this with my poor, old, worn Tacoma... especially with no trailer brakes. My 2500 HD tows it like nothing.

    3000 sounds like a reasonable guess and if it is then 300 on the tongue would be the standard minimum recomended, 10%. Some will tow well with less, some need more. I had a jet boat with almost no tongue weight (maybe ten lbs?) that towed awesome on a tandem axle trailer, but that's not recommended. My Donzi is 6K and has about 400 tongue and tows fine. With a single axle and small outboards they generally need more than a tandem axle and/or heavy engine, but it all comes down to the package.

    Looking at your trailer photo I'd guess that you are over 10% and probably why it tows well.

    No judging here, mine does all I need it to. And for a boat maintenance is cheap[​IMG]

    Aluminum boats are awesome and super durable. Mine was my grandfather's, boat is a '64 Sears, and engine is an 85 evinrude. Simple and functional

    They are plentiful out there, not so many on the west side. Mine came from South Carolina. It's for sale now; come & get it! This line of the Donzi isn't considered a real Donzi by the enthusiasts but I don't care. I find that it's very well constructed, tho much heavier than other makes this size, and it's very fast and fuel efficient for it's weight and size. She'll top out at 47 MPH and gets almost 3.5 MPG cruise out of a stock 260 HP 5.8 with a stock three blade OMC stainless steel prop. It handles the ocean pretty well and is pretty stable at anchor, and the handling is crisp and easy. .....Makes me think I'm selling the wrong boat.:notsure:

    You live in California and bought it from SC? How much was shipping on that bad boy? If you were on East coast Id probably take you up on that offer. I know people don't see that style as a Donzi but it still is one and I like it. You have any more pics of the interior and cuddy? Id love to see.
