Thanks to the wonderful craftsmanship of fellow WoodyBoater Robert DaPron and his photo take’n skills we now can enjoy a complete restoration of his personal 1928 Chris Craft. This online book that you can see here….Click Here… is a wonderful journey that makes it all look so simple… For the record, it’s not. The attention to detail is wonderful. I met Robert and his side kicks at Lake Dora last year. They made it all the way from Washington State. Robert does restorations one at a time, one man at a time. He can be reached at DaPron Marine Restorations. No web site.. Just an email. firstname.lastname@example.org .. to quote him “if anybody has question that I can answer (no guarantee, there is a ton I don’t know)”.. HA, welcome to the club. It’s refreshing to at least have someone admit it. Funny thing, there are a ton of experts out there… But after one look at his book, it reminds me of an old saying. One picture is worth a thousand words. Way to go Robert.
