This Sunday here in Virginia it was a nice 68 degrees and Jimmy called and said, lets play with the boats for Lake Dora. BAM. I think I actually hung up the phone while getting into the truck! First job was the trailer. This is a 3 year old Custom Phoenix Trailer that we got from Katz’s Marina. But its aged a bit, and not in a good way. Scratch here and there. Wheels kinda ratty.
So after a good sanding and prepping, we blacked out the trailer and added a classic look that pays homage to Chris Craft trailers of the era.
Black and Yellow fenders with a touch of red type on the fender. We also added the slogan for all 1948 Chris Craft Advertising.
“Make A Date With A 48 with a NEW Chris-Craft! I like the way this line tells folks what year it is and uses the actual font from the campaign.
It all adds up to a cool classic look on a new safe amazing trailer. Just in time to haul up to Katzs for her new Van Ness engine and then..Fingers crossed to Lake Dora for some March woody boating! Woohooo!
It felt like the start of summer and was a much needed reminder of the fun we all have when we are working and playing with our boats.
