When we purchased the boat there was no information on-board.

We purchased the book, Chris Craft The Essential Guide, that identified the make, model and year based on the hull number we found during restoration.

The Chris Craft hull card is located in different places depending on make, model and year of boat, but every Chris Craft has an original hull number.

We contacted the Mariners Museum and based on the hull number we were able to purchase a copy of the original hull card, photo, engine information, owners manual and marketing materials from 1967.

Here is the information about the Terri Lee II. In the marketing brochures Chris Craft referred to the boat as the “Connie”.

Hello, I have the Connie, Ranger.
I've been trying to restore her for some time, but hard to get the cash up.

What I like to ask is, the fwd deck did it have any canvas in between the decking?

What type of wood was the decking?

I have found on mine, it has teak decking then a canvas then more single 3-4 inch boards then the plywood.

Been having problems acquiring the teak and mahogany for planks, for under $11.00 a board foot here in the US.

Out side its all under $7.00 per board ft but hard to acquire total $$ for shipping.

Well I like to know if yours came with the walnut decking or you just wanted to go with a lesser cost?

It really looks great.
