Information On Condition

This Chris-Craft has been lovingly cared for and for the majority of its recent life, has been stored in a covered slip.

As the video shows, the engines start right up and run great.

The exterior teak needs varnish, the starboard engine tachometer doesn't work. There is some water damage to the plywood interior walls from when it was not kept in a covered slip one season.
