Chris Craft Duck Decoy?
Only on eBay. This Duck Decoy, wait…. the seller of this Duck Decoy claims to have been made by the Chris Craft plant during WWII. So, is it a pre-war or post war duck decoy? And does it have a new bottom… Is that apple green I see, did they use flat head or reed and prince.. click here! It’s for sale of course.
Do not be fooled it is not a Chris Smith decoy. Wrong head shape, wrong body shape and meterial, color and construction other then that it’s a fine duck.
Maybe if it had a hat and cigar?
Ok, did you notce in the listing that it was made by Al Gonac?
Yeah, Al is an old chum.. he was Minni Apolis big brother
Most Chris Smith decoys were hollow body wood decoys with an affixed bottom and a weighted keel. This one appears to be cork?? Or is that Styrofoam?
I have heard this same statement, “Made by the Chris-Craft factory during World War II” numerous times in the last few months. Does anyone know whether this was even true? Last I heard the factories were absolutely up to their ears in boat production during the war. The numbers of government boats that Chris-Craft produced during WWII is staggering. I don’t know how they would have pushed a boat to the side so that they could work on duck decoys.
I don’t think so!!! Al Gonic and some other character, what was his name? Joe something? Oh yea, Martel (or something like that)!!! They both live in hyperville, under an old wood bridge built from abandoned boats and feed off each other’s ego. It’s true.
