Magoo is kissing 600 hours on his M-35 and I do not know of anyone else with this many hours on their QC4V engines. He is still running the original transmissions and M8 drives too.Damn 280 hard hours. There is nothing better than having the manufacturer service your boat. They know it better than anyone. Does magoo still have the record hours on his 1350s in his 35?
And as insane as it sounds, my 08 F26 isn’t missing any of these crazy details. I’ve been in some nooks and found stuff like wth no one should ever even see this...... yet it’s done. Every screw holding adels down is polished even. My 08 is on par or better than with other builders today.Now THAT is one of those special touches that might seam insignificant but is actually a testament to a builder caring for each boat as their own. No detail too small
My boat is there for some updates and items I wanted done after having it for a bit! We absolutely love the boat but always have things that you want attended to after having it for a bit. I’m also having Tony adjust my drive height and toe to my liking while it’s there too just to dial it in a bit more for me!Looks like wild child back there. Wonder what’s broken?
Nick your 37 is jaw dropping beautiful build. Obviously there is no comparison between your 37 and your old 32 but what are some thing you like the 37 has vs the 32 and vice versa.My boat is there for some updates and items I wanted done after having it for a bit!

My wife and I didn’t really shop around before we did our m37r, we have always had a great relationship with Tony, Jeff, Paul and crew at DCB and sincerely appreciate being in the DCB family as the owner group is amazing and we have made so many friends from it. I know there are some stigmas against DCB owners and in some cases those hold true, but most everyone I know are extremely kind hearted and good natured people that love boating!
Great thread and love that the forum gets to see the behind the scenes at DCB and what makes them unique in the industry.
Also, you guys know I’m never beaching my baby!! Lol.
Thank you for the kind words!Nick your 37 is jaw dropping beautiful build. Obviously there is no comparison between your 37 and your old 32 but what are some thing you like the 37 has vs the 32 and vice versa.
If you really wanted to be trick pull them apart and powdercoat them to match the rest of the boat hardware, then reinstall the rubber, or even better use aluminum p-clamps and get rid of the 1980’s rubber cushion clamps…guess that’s only small details that us jet boat guys think of, hahahahaha ….I have ordered a new race boat and will start a thread once I receive the hull and start the build process….definitely not taking anything away from DCB, I own a Mach 22 W/ twins and love it, but there are definitely a few things I would change to set it apart from everything else, some day I’ll get to it
Come on by as I would love to show you around.Great write up Dave!
Kudos to Tony at DCB for taking some time out of what is clearly a crazy busy schedule to give Dave access. I know that as custom boat builders have gotten busy, covid restrictions impacted outside visitors, and the need to keep trade secrets confidential lots of boat companies have reduced engagement on RDP. Through all of this Tony has consistently posted new builds and has remained active on RDP. I for one appreciate it greatly.
Some day in the not too distant future I will have a new boat built. Even though I have never met Tony or even visited DCB, I have insight into how they run their business and the exceptional product they produce. Because of that, DCB is the at the top of the list of manufacturers I will visit.
