I love these little suckers. They ride nice and look fantastic and heck you can fit them into the overhead compartment of a plane for shipping. Really! Just ask the lady on the phone from India? They totally will get it.
JANE: Hello my name is JANE!
ME: Um Mmm, yes, I am asking if you can fit a 1947 Chris Craft into the overhead compartment?
JANE: Oh yes. Is it a pre war or post war?
ME: Mmm, a post war ..16 ft Rocket.
JANE: Oh, sorry, its a rocket, we dont allow Rockets on board.
ME: No its a Chris Craft called a Rocket, its really cool, and all painted correctly with a new bottom.
JANE: Is it a West System Bottom or original?
ME: Wow JANE, you know your stuff. Its West system and new wood
JANE: Thankyou, yes, we can fit a 16 ft Chris Craft into the overhead if you can get it through security.
ME: Oh, ugh.. I hadn’t thought of that.
mmmm I wonder what the TSA ruling is on Chris Crafts in the Xray machine….WAIT, maybe thats a way to see the fasteners? Anyway, So you may have to trailer it home. Its still a great deal for alotta coolness, and there is no way in H.E. Double hockey sticks you could restore one for the money you could buy this. The boat belongs to long time fellow Woody Boater Jerry Conrad, and we have done some small stories on her before. Her name? Dr’s Orders, Jerry was told by his Dr to keep busy. Now its done and he has another to do. So get busy and buy this so Jerry can stay alive!YOU CAN SEE THE EBAY LISTING HERE
