A "Connie" for Kids in Need

by Jim

We have a pretty special 1962 36-Foot Chris-Craft Constellation that we now want to prepare the bottom for painting.

If you go to our site, www.prayermama.org you will see that we are using the boat for a great cause and my 10 year old son is actually at the "helm" of this project.

We have a great volunteer crew of professional painters (fiberglass) that are donating the paint job.

But we all have NO experience with a wooden boat bottom and all that needs to be done.

Do you think, after looking at our boat, we can handle this?

Any advise/guidance you can give would be greatly appreciated.

What a great idea, and a great boat.

I wish you luck and good experiences on her.

I will ask around the marina here and forward this link to friends.

I am perfectly aware that the majority of Wooden Boat aficionados are sensible folk.
