Here are two notable teak flooring projects aboard a 23' Chris Craft hull. Both of these are 23' Commanders but the 23' Lancer is essentially the same hull, I'd love to have one of these hulls with either badge on it. The 20' fiberglass Sea Skiff project, available in the Restoration section of the Master Index, effectively put me out of the market for a Lancer or 23' Commander. I was actually engaged in an actual search, when Steve posted the now infamous post, "hey Paul, look at this" sorta thing.
Both Bill and Thibaud have done magnificient jobs with their teak work. I dare say, it takes a glass boat and pushes it up into the rarified air of an exotic, and since it's allready a classic, and we're talking "floors", sheesh, you can't go wrong. Nobody is going to say, "hey....where is that original indoor-outdoor-marine-carpet, or that Nautolex". People will take one look at that teak and everything will be ok.
