Restoring a 17 Chris Craft barrel back for the shows next summer? Well, meet your future competition. The first 17ft Chris Craft Barrel Back is being preserved at Katz’s Marina. Hull Number 71529
And from speaking to Seth, he is going all out. No detail, is going to be over looked. She will be perfectly preserved.
This is a historic boat being the first one, and the Barrel Back Chris Smith road around in. Her history and importance to the classic boat world is worthy and will be out there, and here on Woody Boater from time to time to show updates. Thanks to Bob Kays for the photos.
