All this talk of spending ones retirement money on boat restorations yesterday had the reverse effect on me. One would think it would send me running to the Antique Boat Center to trade in my 1960 for a 2013 Chris Craft. If you thought that you would be kinda right. First, Suzy aint going anyplace but in front of my dock and out on the water. But I did get a hankering for a new……er Chris Craft. And wouldn’t ya know it, there is one on ebay! I LOVE EBAY! Here.. click here.. is a very sweet 1969 Chris Craft 38 Commander on ebay all ready to go….to the mechanic, and then the boat house. BUT wait.. It won’t need to go to the flip it over and get a bottom guy. in fact that 5 inch thick fiberglass could double as the foundation to a high rise. All I would need to do is get those twin 454’s running, and some carpet, set off a lysol bomb and go boating!
The owner even figured out a cool way to add a vintage flair to the transom. It looks all original, just not anyone’s top priority lately.. That joke will be very funny if you go to the link. Otherwise it just lays there. OK, sorry back to the drool fest. Even the bathroom Turquoise is coll. Dang, how did this happen? I am like a 15 year old looking into the girls showroom when it comes to these dam things.
The only issue for me, is that it’s to far away. I know the logistics of getting it here to DC would be as much as the boat. UGH! Maybe that’s saving me from myself.
