Carla the Cool Cabin Cruiser is the fourteenth episode of the second season.


Emily is happy to be hanging out with Carla, the Cabin Cruiser. To Emily, the cabin cruiser is cool, even though she makes fun of names and takes unnecessary chances. Besides, Emily enjoys the thrill when Carla convinces her to cross in front of Jennifer, a big ship who is coming into the Harbour. The fact that cutting in front of a ship like Jennifer is against the rules just seems to make it more fun. However, when Carla ignores a storm warning and suggests that they go to Rocky Point, Emily finally says no. Carla accuses Emily of being boring and heads out anyway, but when Carla gets stuck in the storm and needs the tugs to save her, she learns that Emily is really the 'cool' one.



  • The line of marker buoys for the ships are not seen in other episodes.
  • Throughout the episode, the Harbour Master just refers to Rodney as Rod.
  • This is the last episode to be dubbed in Swedish.
  • Carla calls Hank "Honk". Ironically, Honk is a French word. If you translate "Honk" into English, it means "Hank". So Carla called Hank his french name; Honk.
  • In the Finnish version, Carla calls Hank "Goose".
  • Going by filming order, this is the twentieth and last episode of the second season.
  • The Finnish VHS title translates to "Carla the Cabin Cruiser", while the DVD title translates to "Carla the Cool Cabin Cruiser".


  • It is said that George and Hank were angry after Carla crosses in front if them, but Hank is still seen smiling.
  • In the last shot when Theodore and Emily are supposed to be towing Carla back to the harbour, Theodore's rope is not tied to Carla.
  • This episode features a rule that other boats cannot cross the path of the big ships and yet, in Theodore the Vegetable, a grain ship crossed Julia's path.
