PHOTO OF THE DAY EDITORIAL:
A little bit of the DIY week-end warrior exists in most of us here on THE FORUM, because restoration and maintenance is a big part of antique and classic boating. We either are in a category to pay someone to do everything for us in order to be cool, or we can do things ourselves at a high level of quality, save a few bucks, get it done just like we want it, and still be cool. Most of us here do some of our own work, and must pay to have specialty work done. That still enables us to get into very classy boats for pennies on the dollar. Thus is the life of a classic Chris-Craft owner.
The Photo of the Day today, is featuring Mark at the upholstery table, preparing the interior for his very nice 20-foot fiberglass Chris-Craft Corsair Sea-V inboard. These boats feature a 16-degree deadrise at the transom, tremendous bow flair for a dry ride, and a true lapstrake bottom with a small keel, similar to the wood clinker-built Sea Skiff boats. The result is a fiberglass boat with many of the historic virtues of the this style hull, but with none of the worries about plank deterioration, separation, or replacement. Mark is going through the entire boat now, the motor is back, upholstery going in, and we are hoping to see this one on the water during the 2014 boating season.
