Hi all,

I have the opportunity to purchase one or both of the following CC's.  The
first one is a 1948 18' with a Deerfield inline 6 cyl with two carbs.  This one
has all instruments and the original glass windshield.  The second one is a
1956 18' with the Ford Y-Block Interceptor engine (spider manifold w/two horiz.
carbs?).  The guy is asking $600 for the '48 and $1500 for the '56.  Apparently
the '48 is on a single axle homebuilt trailer, and the '56 is on a tandem with
brakes.  Note:  Both boats are in need of major restoration, but they are
basically complete.  

Please e-mail me if you think that this is a good deal or not.  I am not
concerned about resale, but more about sentiment (my wife's Grandfather sold
the CC's in this era, and these may have been bought from him originally in the
Lake Tahoe Area!)  

Let me have your comments!

Thanks,
Doug Wilsey

Well, there are a fe of the old oval cruisers in our area.
Man, they are some fine boats!!!  Italian Rivas, ChrisCrafts
and the like.  If I was loaded I'd get one of them to be
sure.  There have been a couple of articles in both Cottage
Magazine (www.cottagelan.com - tell Peter I sent ya) and

find out where my last writer's cheque went, will you?) that
might  be of interest.  It is not cheap to restore these old
things (one story  had a bit about this old 10 cylinder
engine...) from all accounts, but I sure like the end
result.

I imagine that Correct Craft can also help out.

Good luck!
Tom

BUY THEM BOTH!!! RIGHT NOW, IF NOT SOONER!!! GET UP AND GET YOUR WALLET
AND KEYS!!!  GOGOGO!!!

Why piddle around with a tupperware boat ;^) when you can have the beauty
and character of a classic woody?
I've got a '62 Chris-Craft Skiboat, and it's an absolute blast!! Simple,
beautiful, durable, and real eye-catchers. Sure, they're a little more
work than a plastic boat, but they're well worth it.

Nothing, I repeat: NOTHING is as cool as firing up one of these old
warriors up early in the morning and going for a spin.

And if you've got "Tinkers Blight" as bad as I do, restoring a wooden boat
isn't work, it's a darned good way to spend your spare time with your
loved ones (family, too!).

Check out the Antique and Classic Boat (ACBS) web pages and links:  
http://www.acbs.org/

And if you want more, email me direct and I'll get you more info on
working on them. (If you know your elbow from a screwdriver, it's easy!)

James
