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.

While the original system worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or posting new photographs etc.

That is why I have introduced the new Your Pages.

This is new ‘Community’ platform is for 2018.

It is designed to put you in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as and when you wish to.

There is also a forum where you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in the conversations.
So, please come on over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
