1962 Chris Craft. Model -- 16 foot Ski Boat.

This is a fine example of a classic boat.

Starts right up and idles as smooth as can be.

What a great sound.

Notice the clean exhaust.

Conveniently located just off hwy 50 in Camino Ca.

Has a 283 185 HP V-8 made by Chevrolet I'm sure but it is branded with the Chris Craft name. 4 barrel carburetor.

Single axle trailer that is powder coated and with spare tire.

Full boat cover

Boat was restored from the frame up in 1999 at a boat shop in the Bay Area.
Have over $23,000 plus in receipts for restoration work and pictures of work at various stages of progress.

All new upholstery and interior.

New windshield.

Boat bottom has "West System" which is a 2 part system applied below the water line

Electrical system is 12 volt with rotary battery isolator switch. Pigtail installed for a battery charger.

Have numerous large size (Approx 2' X 3') build drawings from the factory.

All factory documentation and factory service manuals for all components.

The only part on the boat that is not factory stock are a pair of Bennett trim tabs that are electrically over hydraulic operated by the operator which greatly improve the ride and handling.
