    Yep its a Dana 19 sprint.Probably 80,81 ish.I started working at Dana boats in 1984.My dad had one,that I helped build.I built a blower motor for it and it ran good.Never gpsed it though.Never had any hull problems.I would guess it ran 80 or low 90??.These are full stringer hulls but if you are looking to get some more speed check the bottom of your boat.It probably has a lot of hook in it.Mine did.Also Dana boats were built in Garden Grove California,Off the 22 freeway and the 405 freeway.Not there anymore went out of buissness in early 90's.If you need any more info let me know Tom.

    Is that the same Dana boats that was just bought? The new owner is named Jason and he lives in Temecula, CA. He's a good guy and I hope these things make a come back. I don't know what molds were included in the purchase and don't even know if it's the same company. RD

    I do know the 19' sprint and some of the other molds were bought from trophy boats in the mid to late 70's.At least thats what I was told by the old owner Dave Stockton.

    As for the new Dana boats I dont know that would be cool if it was.I know the guy who had the molds his name was Smiley down in Santa Ana.He was the one who laid them up for Dave at Dana Boats

    Yes if you measured it probably,but the called it a 19' sprint.The actual 20' was more of a mini day style.Boat must of been built wright before I started to work there.Nice riding boat,a little heavy.I think I am going to call my buddy and see if I can buy mine back.I miss that old boat.
