Link to a review of the boat

I am the 3rd owner and have the original books and welcome letter from carver.

Available with the boat is a custom 3 axle trailer. I have not registered the trailer for over the road use but I am sure it could be used for short trips if you wanted to get the proper permits. $2400 additional for the trailer. I will not sell the trailer separately until the boat sells.
