My understanding is that they started a boat for a customer which then backed out of the deal leaving Carmen with the motors, material and all the labor costs. In these times I am sure people were not standing in line for a new boat and they could not recover. I have been on some charter boats that were Carmen hulls and they ran very well.
I own the plug that the molds were made from. It is 46 ft. and a very reliable boat. It handles very well in rough water. I would be glad to take you for a ride. I run out of Deale. Give me a call 301-855-5341. Charlie
