Regardless of in the water or in a workshop. This curved bow is stunning
Last week we posted a photo on Facebook that reached over 54,000 people, then the next day we repeated that shot and reached a quick 13,000 people, on Instagram the image had a nice response as well.
Its a wonderful rounded bow shape. A gentle perfect curve
Alex Watsons later Chris Crafts with a sharper bow design.
Bob Kays and his BW girl friends out in his late 50’s Runabout with a sharper bow, these later Chris Craft hulls were VERY similar to Higgins Shaped.
This perfect Higgins Bow looks great and rides even better

Later Whirlwinds have an extreme pointed bow, where as the earlier ones are less raked.

We have shared similar images of different boats, but nothing like this. Now, I know when we show images of Barrel Backs they draw big numbers. But others not.
Gar Wood Bow is very simular to the barrel Back bow. According to some Chris Craft borrowed the bow from Gar Wood
Same bow design
No matter how beautiful the photo, the boats bow and stern seem to draw larger crowds. The beautiful bow on the Riviera and late 40’s Customs, And U22s 25’s are pure perfection.
Then there is the Bow Wow Wow…Wow!
Sure the more pointed bow on the pre wars is cool, as is the Clipper Bow, and more raked 50’s bows. Do the likes and shares on Facebook tell us something? Do the general public have an image in their heads of what a Woody Boat should look like?
