T2x,

Was that Carlson the design that was a small tunnel up front that became essentially a flat bottom at the transom? If so Charles Blicklie (He of the Bradford Yachts family, importer of Feadships for decades) (remember Lionel Beakbane and his Switzer Wing, his Dad was part of the Feadship importing group) had one that we took to school in 1967 and 1968. Powered with a 90 or 110?? Pine Crest had moved to NE 62 Street in Fort Lauderdale and the Cypress canal ran nearby. We would ski behind the Carlson up the ICW (No manatees, no no wake zones, no condos (yes, those were good times!) Alternate days we took my 18 Donzi, however the school high ups could hear us docking and ultimately the gig was up and alas, school bus hell...............

I digress, the boat wouldn't turn worth a darn and above 55 porpoised like a Boston Whaler 13 with a 65 hp Merc at last tilt pin. (You, me and a couple of really old goats (yes Brownie, that would include you as well) remember what a tilt pin was Didn't matter, we were boating, and then, that's about all that mattered...........

Glad you're well T2x, regards to Darren.

Your Mexican compatriot
