A huge thanks to fellow Woody Boater Hakan Pettersson from Sweden for sending in photos of his time capsule XK -19. Okay, the boat is in Sweden, was in California. Now, Haken’s got questions that some of you XKers may now how to answer. The good news is Hakan can read English, so you don’t have to write your comments in Swedish. Then again, that may be fun? Take it away Hakan.
Hi fellow WoodyBoaters
I’ve bought a new boat, a XK-19 from 1971. You can from the attached pics that it’s in very good but used condition and all matching number with HIN: ORCZ 19 2042V
It has the big 350LFV HP engine with appr. 320-330 hp and no 611186.
I´m, trying to find out more of its origin from Mariners Museum but the Chris Craft section is closed due to maintenance of the building..?!
It has 740 hours on the meter and has spent its entire life on Lake Arrowhead CA in a boat storage facility.
I have some questions though and maybe you can help me out here:
– The registration number on the boat, is it traceable and what does the CF 9841 FA stand for?
– All the info I can get on the boat, previous owner, history, original spec etc
– And…it needs a name!
Best regards, Hakan
Woohooo, we got us a naming party!
