This is Hull Number R-17-302, built early in 1947 before Chris Craft’s Engineering Change No. 1328 that moved the instruments to the center of the dashboard. In 2006 it was purchased in rough condition by the previous owner who restored much of it over the next six years, including a new 3m 5200 Bottom with white oak frames to replace old oil-soaked frames, new fir stringers, and a new aluminum gas tank with electric gauge (many photos documenting this process are available upon request). At that time a model K flat-head 6 cylinder Chris Craft engine was professionally rebuilt by CDs Engine Service in Hudsonville , MI, and modified for 12 volts (invoice available upon request). All original gauges were restored by Kocians and modified to 12 volt, all chrome fittings were rechromed, and the seats were re-upholstered in red leatherette to match the original color. Between 2012 and 2016 the boat was stored in a dry enclosed garage. The present owner had the restoration completed between 2016 and 2018, including installation of the rebuilt engine, with new electric fuel pump; rewiring with modern Coast Guard-approved marine wire and fastenings; replacement of topsides mahogany planks where needed, refinishing topsides and deck, and installation of a new crashpad (an extensive documentation journal with many photos is available upon request). Miscellaneous original accessories are included, such as original fire extinguisher and flag poles.
