How do I value and sell my father's 1950 Chris Craft Replica?
My father built an 18 foot runabout from blueprints and design of Widd Hauber back in 1950.
It is close in design to a Chris Craft runabout from what I can tell.
It has been dismantled and garaged for approx 50 years.
We have many of the original gauges, wood benches minus upholstery, original blueprints and supply list, etc.
The engine was removed and sold.
He started to restore it and sand it down years ago, but never finished.
Can you provide any advice on how to sell this or value it?
We are in the Los Angeles area.
I can provide photos of it in the water in the 50's, and present
I appreciate any advice you can offer!
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
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
