This was about three years ago when we first got started
the boat sat in the same slip unused for 16 years and sank at the dock
(exahst pipe left lying in the floor disconnected and a stern line broke allowing the boat to hang on the dock when the tide went out and submerged the exhaust opening allowing water to flow back thru the exhaust and sink her)the original engines could not be salvaged still have the paragon trans in the garagethese pictures are of her stripped down to fighting weight

Edit comment: Because this particular thread has become so notorious in a good way, demonstrating what hard work and determination can do, I'm adding the glory photo below showing MISS LILY proudly at the docks after a LOT of work from Dave and Lily. The threads that follow chronicle all of this work, and it is a magnificient example of classic Chris Craft Commander restoration.
