Looks to me like the back end of the old '59 Ford.

Looks like Batman's boat !!! :steering: :purplaugh That's exactly what I said when I was talking to the owner........he looked at me...and with a rather dignified voice said
" Sir......this is not the Bat boat! :rolleyes: It is a 1959 Chriscraft that is constructed of wood and covered in fiberglass."

Cool old boats..

I was just looking at an add for an old Chris Craft last Friday. I think the guy wanted about 2k for it. A project boat would be sweet.:toast:

Excellent Pics. That "bat boat" I believe is called a Sliver Arrow and the other one is a 1955 Cobra. I am a wood boat enthusiast. I've been to the Mt. Dora boat show in Florida a few times. I love the old wooden boats. To me that is the heart of where our modern ski boats have come from. I learned to ski behind a '68 Century Cheetah and my Grandfather owned a '55 Chris Craft. My dream boat is this a '64 Chris Craft ski boat or Super Sport. Love the Mahogany. Too bad Chris Craft doesn't make an inboard ski boat today. I would be interested.

Me too i always thought that it would be cool to see a modern Chris Craft ski boat with some mahogany just like the Correct Craft Paragon in 94.

I wish MC or Chris Craft could make something like this. I would drop my boat in a second.

Skifreek,

They all had fiberglass hulls, no paint. That one you have listed is the only burgandy one made. Something seems wrong. I would be asking $60+. Look at the floors, looks like water damage.

Nice boat though.

I understand that all of the floors are teak though. all you'd have to do is refinish it. I bought a 1885 MC, it's not like I have the money for a Paragon anyway.

This isnt "our" Chris Craft but we do use it and work on it alot. The owner and my dad have been best buds for years. I think these pics are reposts but they fit this thread better.
