Here is my 1989 DV 200 - The entire boat was cap off restored. Transom and stringers completely replaced. I tournament fish with the old girl still and I would never sell this boat to buy a new one! It takes rough water better than most new boats. I have a mod vp stuffed under the clam shells. Great boat!
