Cary 50?
Cabin pics look just like a Cary 50
Looks like a platform was added.

Thats what I thought, but only have seen Cary's by pics, I like them big boats. Diesels/surface drives would be better suited for this applications, I was shocked to see Barvos on such a heavy boat. Jeff

I have been to Chris shop, Sean Stinson was working out of there from time to time, rigging some of Chris's cats. Chris is a great guy and been in boats forever. He was surposed to be in on the Chief Power Boat deal, but something must have happened.

That has to be a Cary copy or? Even the dash matches Hotrodders Cary 50. His takes $400 to run from Muskegon to Holland and back if you're not pushing it. It has 4 454's with TRS's. I thought all of the molds were in Florida.

Not real sure, but I believe it's called Merrill Marine owned by Chris Merrill located in Granger, Indiana which is right on the border of Michigan about 5 miles east or so of South Bend, IN. I believe it was years ago that Chris bought one or two of the Cary molds. The shop number is 574-272-9716.
