More than a familiar face in the New Jersey performance boating community, Thomas Anselmi is among the nicest and most generous folks you’ll ever meet. While he’s made his Donzi 38 ZRC (Comp) sportboat built in 2003 and powered by twin Mercury Racing 575 SCi engines, which he eventually had upgraded to 700-plus hp with IMCO SCX drives, a staple in poker runs in the Northeast and Florida, he’s also pressed it into higher service. Anselmi and his wife, Andrea, have given rides to deserving folks from injured veterans during the Garden State’s annual offshore powerboat race in Atlantic City to mentally and physically challenged children and their families during the Shore Dreams For Kids event in Brick.
