So my dad saw this picture and recognized your boat. Says he thinks he bought some manifolds from ya.Here's an early shot before color sanding and new interior....
I am aware Caribbean made two 20.5 models in 1990. An Aries model and a Sport model. I do not know which one I have as both came as a jet and both supposedly were offered as open bow models. There was a 21.5 foot model called an Empress I believe. The current engine is 540BBC, the original engine was 454. Speed? I have Gps'd it at 70 but was not great conditions. I originally bought the boat to take on houseboat vacation with kids and grandkids to tube and ski with. Do not know how fast it will go but is fast enough to tube and ski behind.That is the same exact boat as mine but blue. So i guess it is safe to say that my hull is a Caribbean? W hat kind speed does your boat get. Do you have pics of the motor?
very cool...Hardin marine owned both companies. Dave woods ran the boat building business and Barry Lieberman ran Hardin marine and everything was owned by old man Hardin. He also owned Hardin Oldsmobile in Orange county Ca.
