Is that a boat or the box it came in?

I guess that spoiler on the back is because they are so fast the stern lifts and the prop blows out if they didn't have it.

Wow did not know this...Carver has been building affordable functional boats since 1954, 67 years!
In the 1980s and 1990s, Carver was the largest manufacturer of fiberglass production yachts in the world. (according to Wikipedia)
When owned by Genmar, they survived the corporate bankruptcy and are thriving today.

It’s not called a, sort of flying bridge. It’s actually referred to, as, a flybridge.

My striker calls them tennis shoes. In all reality, no offense to the “brand” - it’s one of the best marine marketing concepts out there. Wife with the wallet gets what she wants and well the poor husband… he gets a boat

By someone’s very loose definition....a “boat”

I wouldn’t take that shitbox on a pond

This kind of boat is specially designed to plow through slow speed zones at 10 knots, throwing off a 4 foot wake, that is strategically shaped to swamp any boat without 3 feet of freeboard. Favorite spots are restaurant finger docks and bridge fenders.

I think that boat is horrifyingly ugly, and I’d be too embarrassed to ever run it, but… in terms of people-on-the-water functionality, I bet it works pretty well. Not seaworthiness, just use of space. I’d like to get on board just to look around.


but honestly, there had to be a way to work that layout without the horror of the appearance. Did they originally come with a matching Pontiac Aztec?
