19 Feet 1938 Chris Craft

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. Upgrades are as follow: automatic bilge pump, original 6v electrical system was upgraded to 12v, Fireboy Clean Agent Fire Extinguishing system and a Fireboy M-1 Gasoline Fume Detector (installed 2017), new water intake pump (2019), True 3M 5200 bottom (completed 2019), transmission rebuilt by Robert Henkel (July 2019), leather seats reupholstered (1980 and July 2021). She comes with a custom fit Sea Lion tandem axel trailer with 6 bunks and brakes (spare tire) and a custom fit canvas mooring cover suitable for trailering. She’s ready to go with her original "Chris Craft" flag mounted on her bow and an American flag mounted aft of the engine compartment as well as dock lines and 3 custom embroidered fenders for docking.

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.

Located in the Seattle area and offered at $36,500 with trailer and boat covers. For photos and further information please visit our website www.seasensations.com or email us info@seasensations.com. Fletcher Boats are known for the classic lines of speed liners of the 1940’s & 50’s with an appreciation of modern technology.

All fastenings are stainless and silicon bronze. Traditional white cocked deck seams with accent king plank & covering board. The finish is twelve coats of Epifane. Encore is fresh water cooled so she can play both in the Sound and lakes.

Encore has a new in-water boat cover, fresh batteries, water pump and recent oil change. We replaced her aluminum rub rail with solid stainless, insulated her engine compartment and accessed additional storage area forward. She is a real head turner, beautifully built with classic lines.

16 Feet 1957 Thompson Sea Coaster

This 1957 Thompson Sea Coaster was restored both inside and out and will be sure to turn heads when you are on the water cruising in this wood stunner. The hull is all original 5-Ply Douglas Fir Laps. The laps were inspected, tested, and tight. The hull was then sanded and all bolt fittings were sealed with MarineRX 2-part epoxy to ensure another 70+ years of on-the-water fun. The hull received a full Pettit System paint finish, including three coats of Pettit Marine Primer, four coats of Pettit Topside Above-the-Waterline Gloss Polyurethane and four coats of Pettit Hydrocoat ECO Ablative Antifouling Paint below the waterline. The natural wood finishes on the exterior are mahogany and sealed with three coats of Pettit Flagship Gloss UV Protecting Varnish. The Sea Coaster's interior hull has been sanded and finished with two coats of Smith's Clear Penetrating Epoxy Sealer. The floors are beautiful teak slats that have been sanded and hand-rubbed with teak oil. The seat backs have been sanded and sealed with two coats of Pettit Flagship UV Clear Varnish. The bench seat cushions are made of new open-cell foam and covered with new marine vinyl. The decking brightwork is a mix of original and additional, period-correct hardware. The metal and wood rub rails are all original to the boat. I've added a mahogany rub rail strip and brass nail detail between the top and second lap to protect the lap edge. The windshield frame is solid mahogany and dovetail constructed. All new tempered safety glass was installed this year. New wiring has been run throughout. The motor is a beautifully restored 1956 Kiekhaefer Mercury Mark 30 with electric start and is paired with a 1956 Kiekhaefer Quicksilver mechanical control. No other way to put it, this boat is sexy! The trailer is a Holsclaw Trailer from the 70s

17 Feet 1948 Chris Craft Deluxe Runabout

This boat started its life after completion on March 5, 1948 in the Chris Craft factory in Algonac, MI with a delivery to the Kenneth E. Wilson company in Newport Beach, CA. Its refurbishment began in California in early 2003, it was “quick claimed” as an abandoned boat in the LA area outskirts by a retired Doctor George Sweeney. He brought it home and with a few friends, they replanked the bottom and sides (triple planking on bottom, double planking on sides). I believe he worked on it for about 5-6 years out in California and got the hull back into ship-shape applying the West no soak on the hull. Then I believe the boat was purchased by another doctor in Arkansas, moved there and little progress was made thru about 2012 on the boat. In about 2013, the boat was purchased again and moved to Hague, New York area where the restoration was completed. The boat work was done by Chad Dunklee and Walt Peterson (Chad was the manager of boat rebuilding at the Hacker Boat Company at that time). The engine and transmission was rebuilt to a 12V system and unleaded gas operation by Fish Brothers in the Hague New York area while the wood and chrome was refinished. The boat was completed in about 2015 and even entered into the Adirondack Chapter’s 40th Annual Lake George Rendezvous where it received an award. In May of 2016, I purchased the boat and returned it to its birthplace of Michigan, where it was enjoyed by many cruising the Big Crooked Lake in Brighton, MI. Regular service was done, a bilge blower was carefully installed to match existing dash switches, and the boat was re-varnished in early 2019 in the Algonac area by the old craftsmen of the Chris Craft factory there. The seams are tight, the varnish is shiny and the boat is a beautiful piece of art. Overall, it is in immaculate shape and ready for the next owner to care for it long into the future. I have a binder of original documents such as the “build sheet” from 1948, catalogs, and maintenance booklets to pass to the new owner, along with about 200 photographs of the original work done in California in the early 2000’s. Fully restored and Recently refinished, no soak hull, immaculate with trailer
