Easy as the boat is to handle, we still found some features normally associated with bigger performance boats - deep in-floor storage, brawny retractable cleats, big sun pad and the through-hull exhaust. Caravelle uses no wood in constructing the 192, and we noted how firmly it rode at all speeds. At top end, with a little lake chop, the 192 remained more firm than we might expect from such a niche boat less than 20 feet. When not testing for acceleration and all-out speed, we found a nice economical pace at 2,500 rpm (about 23 mph). And we still looked fast doing it.
