21 Feet 1935 Chris Craft Deluxe Utility

"Just Because" 1935 Chris Craft 21 FT Deluxe Utility. Complete professional restoration by Miller-Potter Boat Restoration of Manotick, Ontario, Canada. Completed in Spring of 1991. The restoration was commissioned by Ted Storey of Kingston Canada and a former member of the Board of Directors of the Antique and Classic Boat Society headquartered in Clayton, NY. Under Ted's ownership Just Because won numerous awards at some of the most prestigious antique boat show competitions in the US and Canada. I acquired ownership in 2008. I entered Just Because in the ACBS sanctioned boat show sponsored by the Finger Lakes Chapter while I was on vacation in Hammondsport, NY and came away with the Best Antique Utility Award. The board is powered by the original (rebuilt) 60 HP Model B Chris Craft engine. Just Because has had little use over the years since restoration and has always been stored in a boat house or garage. Built at the Chris Craft plant at Algonac, Michigan and delivered to the Mercier Boat Works, Clayton, NY in April 1935. The first owner was W.W. Plumb of Syracuse, NY. The boat came under Canadian ownership at Kingston, Ontario in the late 1940's first by Jake Stansbury and then by Norman Edgar. Then by Ted and Amy Storey of Kingston when in underwent its complete restoration. The boat comes with a scrapbook documenting it's history and awards and bound in the original mahogany planks removed at its restoration at Miller-Potter Boatworks. Just Because was featured as the December boat of the month in the 1996 Classic Motorboats calendar.

19 Feet 1938 Chris Craft Sportsman

The 1938 19 foot Sportsman is a very rare and desirable boat. At 19 feet it is the smallest Triple cockpit and has seating for eight people. The Aft Cockpit faces to the rear and affords you an opportunity to watch world behind you as glide thru your favorite lake or river. This was a unique design for 1938 that included two smaller seats in the Engine compartment. The front cockpit is very stylish and you ride on the comfort of blue leather seats. This boat departed the factory in 1937 and went to Chicago. In July of 1939 it returned to the factory for some minor work and once again departed the factory in July of 1939 and went to Pontiac, Michigan. Over the years it ended up in Virginia and my father and I bought it and brought it back to life. From the ACBS perspective it’s considered a “Preserved Boat”. All the bottom frames, side frames and deck frames are all original as is the sides and decks. No replacement wood. The Interior wood is all original with factory stamps on most pieces. The Ceiling boards are also original. The only modification to the boat is the new wood on the bottom using the WEST System. The engine is the original 95HP and has been completely rebuilt along with the Reverse Gear. New fuel tanks were necessary and replicate the original tanks. Boat was stripped and sanded---restained and Varnished. It has a mirror finish and all the chrome has been replaced. Instrument panel has been replated and has the original gauges along with the Banjo Wheel. Boat comes complete with custom trailer with cut out side lighting. This boat is show ready and would score very high at the ACBS International Show

18' Feet 1950 Chris Craft Sportsman U-18

This is a treasured family boat in excellent running condition. It has been restored, then carefully maintained and used continuously since 2003. The boat has been used for three generations for skiing, tubing, and pleasure cruising. It was shown three times in area boat shows. In 2013 a West bottom restoration was completed and a rebuilt KL engine was installed. The forward and aft decks were restored in 2016. Much early restoration work was done in the 1990’s. Using as much of the original wood as possible, a general rebuild of the entire boat was carried out. All new upholstery was sewn to original specifications and a custom boat cover (down to the water line) was sewn. The instruments, including the steering wheel, were rebuilt. An engine running meter and an electronic fuel pump were added. All metal was re-chromed, missing stainless steel rub rail was acquired and the cutwater was brought back to its original luster. Auxiliary engine parts were rebuilt, e.g., carburetor, generator (converted to 12 volt) and a rebuilt water pump along with a pre-filter for the pump (in 2017). The boat was rewired with an easy to access fuse block. The stern area was reinforced to accommodate water skiers and the bow area was strengthened to allow the boat to be winched forward onto a boat trailer. The trailer was modified to raise the winch to line up with the bow lift ring. The boat, after an annual oil change and winterization, has always been inside for winter storage. The boat trailer has recently had its wheel bearings repacked and all lights (LED) replaced. The trailer has been used several times for over the road trips.
