    Is this campy or what, texx? I would be interested in lee wangstad’s take on this.

    That thing has my name all over it! Just wish it was 500 miles closer!

    It’s, er, different. George Barris could have had a hand in its design. The Batman-esque glass… Perhaps not. Still, I hope it finds a deserving home that will restore it. There should always be a place in the hearts of classic boaters for “lounge boats” like this. They bring us smiles. To bastardize Dr. Seuss, “a boat’s a boat, no matter how odd.”

    Wait – I thought this Emperor was a “turn-key” rig… just fill her up with gas, fire up the Johnson and go! Lake ready.

    Can you put that header Ivalite on it to get more of that crime fighter, Batman look?

    We all need to get this boat! How cool is that. Jim, your close to it! offer 200 bucks

    Last time I went that way I came back with so much stuff the truck lid wouldn’t close. I’m usually allergic to fiberglass but it’s so ugly it’s cute!

    With the right can of silver/gray metallic paint I could make that deck and cabin appear to be metal.
    Still borderline ugly,but metallic.

    Made by a short lived fiberglass boat producer. One of teh thousands that got into it and didn’t last very long. They made some real stylistic watercraft. Info in the Glassic Library at http://www.fiberglassics.com

    Andrew, that’s George Barris. Famed custom car designer / maker. Google his stuff. Very wild, over the top, almost always in bad taste. But he sure made a name for himself. And who doesn’t love the original Batmobile!
