19 Feet 1955 Chris Craft Capri

The boat was in great condition, when I stored it, a number of years ago. I paid for indoor storage and the cover was on the boat. When I finally decide to put the boat in the water I called the storage facility to get it ready for the summer season. They were also supposed to winterize it before storage. They said the gas had turned bad. So, they did a complete servicing ( new spark plugs etc.) I took the gas tank to a company that specializes in redoing and lining the interior of gas tanks. I returned the gas tank after repair to the storage place. I asked that they put it in water to make sure it ran well. When they put it in water, water started filling the boat. It was leaking badly. At this point I went to see with my own eyes( in there parking lot), since it had a Wes bottom that we put on to make sure this would never happen. When I saw the boat I was completely surprised. There were a couple parts missing, the Back of the upper part of the seat had been damaged by ( we believe) by a raccoon. I called an expert and he said the boat had been exposed to rain water, and had some water that it held from rain. Obviously the boat had been outdoors. This water had damaged the wood (rot). How much wood I am not sure, but it probably,but not necessarily, needs a whole new bottom. Although it needed refinishing to be show quality when I stored it, it looked good enough without refinishing to turn heads. It is one of the fastest wood boats I have seen as someone in the early 60's replaced the 6 cylinder motor with a mustang v8 motor.

Flyin’ By is a 1938 Chris Craft Double Cockpit Forward Custom Runabout powered by her original Chris-Craft Model LC (146 HP) flathead 6 engine with twin Zenith carburetors. (Her original block was replaced at some point along the way as well a matching exhaust manifold). Her hull number is 48264. She was delivered to her first owners in Detroit, MI on August 12 1937 and then subsequently sold to a family in Bloomfield Hills, MI in 1960 where she was enjoyed on Michigan’s Lake St. Clair until 2016 when she was purchased and brought to Lake Champlain in VT for her preservation and numerous upgrades noted below. Flyin’ By is a very unique boat and she is mostly original other than the typical safety and convenience upgrades to keep her and her crew safe.

16 Feet 1947 Chris-Craft Rocket

This model is also known in the Chris-Craft record books as a “Special Runabout.” The boat was bought in northern Michigan in the summer of 2016 and was in need of restoration. A complete restoration was conducted over the next three years from 2017-2019. This Rocket is wearing its atomic blue hull paint replicated from the original color. Due to the wood shortages following WWII, as well as the increase in demand of power boats in order for Chris Craft to fill orders, some boats were made from white cedar not mahogany. This model being the only Chris Craft boat made completely out of white cedar, varnishing does not have a similar appearance to mahogany. Leaving a few examples of this model to be painted in the only paint available in the Chris Craft Factory, “atomic blue,” or Chris Craft engine paint. Estimated to be one of 40 hulls originally painted in this color “atomic blue.” This Chris Craft is currently in heated winter storage and available for viewing and testing (weather permitting). Restoration details include: ~New Keel, Port Stringer, Frames 2017-2018 ~Refastened Chines ~Refastened Hull Sides ~New “No Soak” 5200 Bottom ~New Rayco Fuel Tank ~Painted Hull and Deck in Period Correct Chris Craft Blue ~Chrome Replated ~Stainless Trim Polished ~New Upholstery ~New Windshield Glass ~Complete Rewire Rebuilt 1947 Chrysler Ace Marine Engine 92hp 2020 -Estimated 25 hrs. on rebuild -Bored .030 over -New Pistons -Rebuilt Transmission -Rebuilt Carburetor -Rebuilt Fuel Pump -New points, plugs, condenser and coil -New Battery Multiple Les Cheneaux Islands Boat Show Award Winner/ Ready to Show More information available upon request.

21.5 Feet 1936 Greavette Custom Runabout

A spectacular example of the craftsmanship by Greavette Boatworks of Muskoka, Ontario; this "Special" 21.5 ' Runabout was built for Col. Moody, Vice President of Greavette Boats in 1936. She was one of only 6 hulls produced in this length. The uniqueness of this particular boat was that it was the only example with covered decks from the rear seat aft and was given "fancy upgrade" consisting of a custom windshield, steering wheel, instrument cluster and hardware. This rendition was named a "Custom", whereas all of the others were "Utility" hulls with an open rear cockpit and a motor box and standard hardware, basic instrument gauges and steering wheel. The boat was originally named "Rob Roy" after the Moody's two sons, Rob and Roy. Mr. Bruce Wilson, subsequent owner of Greavette Boats, acquired Rob Roy in the 1960's, replaced the original bottom and re-powered the boat with the current Chevrolet "327"cu.in. V8 engine. Rob Roy was purchased by Mr. R.E. McDermott, Port Carling ,ON , where it was boat housed at his summer cottage near Mortimer's Point, ON. The boat has been under the stewardship of her current owner since July of 1978. She was comprehensively restored in 1982-1983 with new decks, engine hatches, interior, dash, upholstery, floors, wiring, gauges, complete varnish and re-chrome and the boat was re-named "AliCat" after his daughter "Ali" and wife "Cathy". During the Fall of 2016 the "AliCat" underwent a refresh where she received a complete new transom and re-varnish of the decks and sides. She is in exceptional condition today and perfect example of a collectable, Canadian built classic!
