This little book is a treasure trove and cool as all get out. This has the behind the scenes glimpse into how Chris Craft sold their boats in 1936. Which in a way is a blue print for probably boat selling today, since Chris Craft literally wrote the book on the subject. I am sure someplace at the Mariners museum this stuff exsisits, but there is something cool about having a real one in your hands. Something about holding the information and bathing yourself in how it was in an un romatizied way.
I always find it interesting to read old magazines of the day of my boats. Usualy the issues I am having today are not because the boat is old, but because that s just what they do. And there is something comforting about that, it tells me its a un refined design compared to todays stuff. And I am OK with that. That is what its really all about, it’s the difference of looking at a boat in a museum, or being out in it and living the history.
The same feeling of holding this book in your hands vs reading the content on a website or in xeroxed form. So why again, am I not quietly letting this not be seen on ebay! Cause.. Well, I still have no idea. If you win it. Share!YOU CAN SEE THE EBAY LISTING HERE
