Holy cow, you wouldn't want to swim up to the back of that meat grinder. A lot of sharp metal there.

Congrats on a beautiful boat

Poolsinc1, welcome the the Cary world. You can'nt beat them for what you can purchase one for. I have had mine for going on 6 years, and yes it is alot of up keep but well worth it....hope you enjoy yours and find the history of it. There is a web site cary50.com that may help? Send me an email with the numbers and I'll try to get you some info from up here where they were built in Grand Haven. I believe there were only 2 red hulls built. [email protected] Jeff...

There was a guy who used to work for my brother when he was building his Barons/Powerplays/Powerquest that quit working for him and got the Postma brothers all fired up about building them.I think Van Andels were footing the bill for the company back in the day.

Thanks for the reminder, still have the other boat.

Gave it (34" Scarab SS) to her with the ring then repowered it '06, change can be difficult.

I should have the #2 transmission back in the Cary by the end of the week. Hope to be on the water by the weekend. Still have about 500 gals of old fuel to deal with.

Clay, at a bare minimun you need to polish your fuel. If it is old it will be full of algea, water and other yucky stuff that big diesels don't like injesting.

follow the link to find some pics of my Cary.

Brad, we put an additive in the fuel but two days later had to haul out for a new transmission. The list has grown and it does not look like it is going back in anytime soon.

Your Cary is awsome! I thought I read you were installing a flat screen, did you do it? We have one and would be glad to send you pics if you are interested in how they did it.
