    I seem to recall that someone stumbled on a warehouse full of this stuff…perhaps a different pattern but nautical.

    Another great find would be a set of the original dishes that came on the 1929 &’30 Chris Craft Commuters.

    Jim, they’ll look especially good displayed on the shelf between the cast bronze exhaust elbows and the steering gear boxes.

    Darn the one day I am not the first to read WB and Jim gets a choice purchase. Those would have looked GREAT on AB with my custom made rock glasses.

    Mike K I’m with you. I still think it’s the condenser.

        set of Riva china would be a good find too. It came in the Super America. Lucky Jim. Glad I could help it go to a good home. Guess I could have bought it and sold it one plate at a time 🙂

    That must be the missing China from my double stateroom enclosed originally delivered to New York. I wondered what happened to my glassware? Glad it’s in good hands. Don’t break it.

    Another china pattern that works well on Chris Craft boats:
    Anchors Aweigh by Sango.
    If you’re interested, there is some of this pattern currently listed for sale on eBay today.
