    My old Carlson Challenger with 150XS

    In the early 70s I had a orange metalflake Carlson Contender 14' w 115hp Merc stack 6. Beautiful boat. Sold it when the family grew. At 50 I decided to buy another one- Carlson Challenger 16'. The metalflake had faded and painted the boat white with red trim. Found a stack 6 Merc 1500XS for it. Used it several times up north before I moved to Florida. Never put it back in the water again. Sold it. Found this photo of it today. Still a beautiful boat-Art Carlson did a great job on this but it wasn't comfortable at all. The flat bottom wasn't fun on anything but glass smooth conditions.
