Hahaha your boat reminded me to start this thread
Haha I hoped it would coerce someone to start the thread!!!

Not many Carreras around anymore?

Side note, if anyone has an older party effect they wanna sell in the ~20k$ range my brother in law is looking.

a couple pics of my eclipse with the 200 evinrude xp. This boat tuned a lot of heads even though it was almost 30 years old and it is fast as hell.

Sorry these are huge pics

I knew a guy that bought an all red 23.5 with radar arch, had a red interior with black piping and black powder coated bow rails and bezels. Dennis wouldn't build the boat unless he had all the funds in hand. The Owners name was Steve and he lived in Sacramento, had a red late 90's CC dually with a red LEER top to match. Looked a lot like the boat pictured above. I was thinking about that boat last week and wondered if it would pop up for sale.

My buddies he bought over the summer
That was the boat I was looking for when I found my Eliminator. Only thing missing is the radar arch. Timeless color scheme. 7 colors and a fade. Blue worked best for the fade with a white bottom.

I see that it has 6 red stripes on the sides, not the same boat I was thinking of. Steve bought his boat in 90 or 91 and it went to Sacramento. His was red, red only, no accent colors.

Thread from the past!

Since this was brought back up, thought I’d post this pic. Dennis Winzen sent me these 3 pics.

The top pic is one of the hot boat photo shoots.
Middle pic is Dennis, his service manager and his sales manager when they finished the boat.
Bottom is the bike he built to match the boat. Dennis said he still has the bike and still rides it!

Does anyone know of a 290 Carrera cat with outboards? If so, what do you think of it?

Saw this in the channel today. Knowing how my buddy’s Raptor rides i really dig this one.
Guy said it was laid up by Eliminator in 2014, and built as a Carrera all around but not by Carrera.

This is a old picture of a picture, but I always liked my 205. It was a pat Murphy project bote. “Mike Murphys brother”. We tried a io hull with a American Turbin. So ya set back pretty far. Porpoise like a MF, unless you used quit a bit down nozzle. I put a big cam in the indmar, dual quads ant a 200 shot of N2O. It was a fun bote for a few seasons, my last jet bote.

21 Eclipse, my favorite boat.
Bought it from a friend, reworked just about everything on it. Would go boating and wakeboarding at lake Peris after work in those "single" days. Now wife and I did lots of boating/camping trips with the Carrera.

Sold it to a friend who sold it to a friend now another friend just bought it....hahh stayed in the circle.

Just helped Logan new owner rebuild the pump.
These boats are timeless!

Rocky’s old boat? White/blue with 300’s? Badass boat. Rocky posts on here occasionally.

I believe my 257 and Rocky’s 290 are the only 2 twin OB Carreras built by Dennis?

Is it for sale?
