Last week, Jim Scott and I found out about a cool marina close by that may have a couple old boats in it that have not been in the water for a bit. So yesterday Jim, Patrick, Lynn and I piled into the old suburban and made the trip to find out more. We were not disappointed and as we pulled into the wonderful little river side town a bigger story started to unfold. But today is about the boat, At first, we thought, mmm this looks like a “whats my boat story” but as we looked harder and got to know the history of the marina, it all came together.
Turns out its a Chris Craft U22 that had been severely damaged, so the owner, who was a very well known and respected boat builder on the Potomac, had customized it, and added a different windshield and rear deck new dash.. Oh and had installed a 454.
To say that this was the high light of the trip, would not be true.. The trip unfolded a much more interesting story.. So stay tuned tomorrow for the next chapter as it unfolded for us.
