1989 Donzi Ragazza
                                                          Custom Upholstered By A.I.R. Upholstery
  Toby's Donzi is Going Home         
              I just want to thank you so very much for everything you have
              done with this boat. I spent about 4 hours last night just sitting
              there taking in the craftsmanship that was involved in this project.

              I really do believe that this project could not look any better, as
              you know, I am a very picky customer and I am thrilled!  I would
              and will recommend you to anyone who needs work done.

             You are the best!

             Not only do I have a great looking classic, but I truly believe I have
             made good friends in the process. Kevin, you are truly a craftsman!

             Thank you my friend.
