April-May 2019: Even the most experienced boaters need a helping hand sometimes. "Only two sailors, in my experience, never ran aground. One never left port and the other was an atrocious liar." ... as the Don Bamford quote goes. And it never hurts to have a little insurance.

That's a Scarab 195 Open on our Feb-March 2019 cover. Yes, it's a jet boat with the same Rotax engine technology you'll find in SeaDoos, which means it's built for fun. Some of the 195's many features include a hinging tailgate; stern tow point, and console changing room. It really is a great choice for family fun! (Don't those happy faces on the cover make that point?) Oh ... and there's a 195 Open Fish model as well. See them at Lake Norman Power Sports in Cornelius.
