Not really. Bob Kensill built one with twin 2-cylinder's (140cc's total) for a guy a good 6 years ago in the same hull. It cost the guy $7,500.00 to have it done. I haven't seen the boat in person, just pictures that Bob took. Bob said that it would top out at around 70 MPH. That sounded a little fast to me but it was Bob's story so he can tell it any way that he wants to.

I'm wondering how much the Bonzi' goes for. Whatever the price I'll bet that not too many of them have been sold.

Ron - think the one in the youtube clip is probably in the $4500-$5000 range (Believe paint starts around $650). I still cannot get over their hike for a bare hull from $595 up to $1495 in less than 2 years.

Jawz - appreciate the compliment - I have to get some pics of them in the water one of these days

theres a few $$ of greed in there As I say - Bonzi went up $904 overnight - around the same time MHZ came out with their $1600 83" apache. I cannot say I am complaining though - just increased the value of my 7ft apache molds overnight

Hi Larry,

Nothing planned just yet. Still a little tinkering to get them wet. Nothing major - but the wife has me committed to other projects at the moment. I will probably run them at Beach Pond when I do (big open pond with easy access). Will keep you in the loop!! I will be seeing Dustin and Deb next weekend (Debs Baby shower).
