In the Chris Craft section of ebay today there are two listings of, well two Chris Crafts. One a Riviera and the other a Deluxe Runabout. OK, that seems normal enough, except, the seller clearly has no idea what he is selling, nor how to sell them on ebay. OK, that’s not the end of the world. And not a huge deal, since the boats tell the truth in the end, it’s just up to you to figure it out. Now this is where it gets fun and interesting. Is this a clever way to suck you into a fun road trip barn find deal? Thats half the fun of such trips. What is it, is it really a 5200 bottom?
Is it possible that in this digital age where you can diagnose a disease on the web, you cant figure out what classic boat you own? I guess. So, this could be your opportunity to use what you know to score a real bargain if in deed the 5200 bottom is real. We advise on these two listings that you not go alone, you take a restorer with you, your future X wife, maybe a priest, your psychiatrist, and you go over those boats with a microscope so you know what your getting into.
