After having seen a few models up-close, I am confident that IF we can find a Carri-Craft in proper condition (for it's age), we will own one.
With that in mind, I started doing some research
on the craft. I have begun a blog on my progress called the Carri-Craft Cruiser's Forum
. I have since changed the name to Carri-Craft Cruiser's Blog since it wasn't in forum format.
I am happy to say, that I actually interviewed the original inventor of the Carri-Craft concept
; Mr. Richard Brooks. Very interesting history
, and what fun to actually speak with the inventor of such a unique live-aboard such as the Carri-Craft! Granted, these are by no stretch of the imagination a blue-water cruiser, but they would surely make an outstanding moving "second home" where it's a heckofalot warmer than MICHIGAN in the winter! And, I have to think that they would prove themselves just fine on the ICW
(where many of us end up anyway)!
Mr. Brooks was almost as excited as I was about my call, and is sending me a large box of "Carri-Craft history" that I am very eager to study. You just never know: maybe this could lead to the reincarnation of the Carri-Craft updated for the 21st century!
