Waiting in the mailbox for me was my latest issue of classic boating magazine. All wrapped up. It’s the same feeling I used to have when I would see a copy of playboy. Man times have changed. But I suppose either way wood is involved, so all is right in the world… This issue though has an interesting story in it. And Joe Martell, the author that attacked the young researchers that use photos to do there research is going to have something to say for sure. In fact it was in Classic Boating that Mr Martell took them to task. So here we have a story from Don Danenberg, using interviews and…. gasp! photos to do research…By the way. A great article if you are into plank intstilation and the correct way to fit a joint…zzzzzzz….. sorry…. were was I….All kidding aside. If you are restoring a boat right now, it’s a must read. There is also more to the story on the Chris Craft Boat Buzz under the heading, “Cadillac plant. Click here. Anyway. It’s a great issue and worth picking up a copy just for the photos and detailed restoration of a very cool Century 1955 Coranado with a Hemi.. It’s as close to a centerfold as you are gonna see. As well as depression era ads, and a cool story on a 1939 19 ft custom dug out of the deep.
