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 Rondezvous 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

17 Feet 1947 Chris Craft Deluxe Runabout

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.

19 Feet 1952 Chris Craft Racing Runabout

Completely rebuilt bottom with inner mahogany diagonal and outer planks set in 5200, hull bronze fastened and all questionable wood replaced. The boat has a 5200 "no soak" bottom and has no plywood. Proper fasteners were used in the bottom planking. It also has the original style Kapok seat cushions with labels. The MBL was completely rebuilt by a master marine engine mechanic and has run flawlessly since installed. Included is a custom trailer. This boat has won many awards and has a long history of winning Best-in-Show and Best-in-Class. It is possibly the best racer available at a realistic price. Fresh varnish was put onto the boat in 2019. • This is a high performance Racing Runabout completed with care and attention to details to allow it to judge well in shows and to enjoy out in the water. It has always been a turn-key boat since restoration and the ONLY problem I have had is the odd time running out of gas, but don’t tell anyone…. :~) • MBL 158hp - “blueprinted” Now 225-250hp - GPS just under 50MPH (49.6 MPH was the fastest recorded) Rebuilt by the late George Schin in Florida. A highly regarded ACBS engine restorer know for increasing horsepower while still maintaining a strong and durable engine. Used an intake manifold from a MCL to allow dual carburetors. • Oil filter added. • Fuel & water filter - canister style • Pertronix ignitor replacing points. (Comes with extra ignitor for security although I never needed it) • PYI shaft seal. Pack-less and dripless, the PSS Shaft Seal helps to eliminate water in the bilge (100% water tight) & wear to the propeller shaft. • modern ACME propeller - 13" x 17” with tip cup to fine tune RPM to approx 3500-3600. Boat comes with original propeller as spare. • proper square head on engine lag bolts into stringers • Custom tandem axel trailer included - electric brakes & LED lights • Fresh varnish 2019 • Multiple award winner - long history of “Best in Class” & “Best in Show” - consistent ~95-99 point boat. Always depends on the judging. Some judges don’t notice the extra carburetor ;~) • 12 volt conversion. Easy to loose a point here. • 5200 no-soak bottom. NO PLYWOOD and proper fasteners in inner diagonal bottom planking • Kapock cushions with labels - proper and very rare in restorations • Comes with original 1952 life preserver for “show".
