I have one available for restoration.

She docked in Long Beach.

Great Job!

My grandfather owned one of these boats for years!

He kept it on the St. Clair River in Michigan where we spent our summers growing up!

I have so many,many happy memories on this boat.

What I wouldn't give to see one again.

I've seen a few on the internet but I've never come upon a fully restored one.

So glad you posted pictures!

I'm looking forward to seeing everything.

Nice boat
by: Jim

Give serious thought to entering her in classic boat shows.

You might sail away with a blue ribbon!

Very nice looking C.Craft.

Absolutely Awesome

That is one beautiful boat.

I saw one last week near Chicago, I think it is past saving.

This looks great and seaworthy.

The white finish is tops.
