Ever seen a real rare can of actual Chris Craft varnish?


And of course there is this years Florida T shirt. We hope to have you hang around in it! Available in Florida. Also we will be clearing out the current inventory from the store. All items are being sold out for new stuff. So if you want it, it will be in Florida, save on shipping.

Hang in there TYPE White

The new Florida T Shurt with.. Drum Roll.. Pocket on the front! This one is for you Jim..

The huge Thursday Night Party at The Antique Boat Center at Rejuvenation Boat Works. This is a fantastic open party with BBQ and a frosty mug of something. This is an annual party, only this year its wide open and fun to all our Woody Boaters coming to the show. Sponsored by the Antique Boat Center, Hagerty Marine Insurance, The Chris Craft Antique Boat Club, and the Sunnyland Chapter. I will add, that Friday can be the best day of the show, so showing up early Thursday night is always a great time. Starts at 4pm ends at 8! You can see the place and directions by CLICKING HERE

So if the 15 Cobras are not enough to get you there, then maybe a free beer and warm cup of varnish will do the trick!

    Really looking forward to Dora and seeing everyone there!

    Maybe I will need some more of the long sleeved T’s if they are on clearance.

    Great new WoodyBoater stuff. Especially the shirt with my newly restored CC Continental on the back. I have to get one of those! Since I can’t make Mt. Dora, I hope the new stuff is available in the store soon.

    We will have long sleeves Troy, and Greg its what ever boat you want ti to be, The original shot is from a story on Bottoms up restorations, from Fellow Woody Boater Steve Bunda with a lot of artistic changes. I always loved the simplicity of the photo, Steve, will know what boat it is.

    I will personaly bring them to your amazing set up at Dora with a pocket T. If you guys havent seen Jims set up at Dora, its worth the trip alone for the flea market.

    How about the heavy long sleeved hooded sweatshirts, rain ponchos, and hurricane proof umbrellas? Everyone will need one of each just to make it to the Chris Craft club meeting on Saturday.

    Great looking tee shirt and love the mugs. When and where will you be setting up? We will be lined up like a Black Friday line before you even get there. Single digits here on the Lake Michigan shore again last night, we are so tired of winter and it’s been the anticipation of a week on the water in the warm sunshine that has kept us going. Gonna spend some time this weekend getting the boat ready to travel. Iam really hoping we don’t have to re winterize for the return trip.

        Dennis, You will be a little ahead of us then. We are leaving about 4am on the 21st, staying south of Atlanta Saturday night and rolling into Tavares mid day Sunday. Have a couple ideas for side trips from there so we may not launch there right away.

          We fly into Orlando on the 21st, than renting a Motorhome for the week +. Going to visit some friends in Sarasota area before Dora than hanging around for a few days after. Expect to visit with Paul and Karen some but will also be open to any other boat rides.

    Trying to work out some logistics. Original plan ; I thought I would spend all of March in Sunnyland. Bikeweek, Trip to the Keys, Sebring race and finish with the Tavaras Show. Now I am trying to figure out how to make a last minute trip to buy some cool ass coffee varnish mugs….

    The Chris Craft is Russ’s 18 Foot Continental called , Goin’ Up North. Boat was refitted with a new 5200 bottom and refinish.
    The essence of the picture and excellent resulting art work represents any wood boat .
    This is a surprise to Laurie and I , and we Love it, Thanks !

      That distinctive wind shield gave it away as a Continental. Mine is a 1957 20 ft. and will be getting splashed this Spring.

    The best part of waking up? Vintage marine graphics!

    I follow the warning on the mug and avoid coffee, but I guess I could use a few for Bacon, Bourbon, and Hazelnut Hot Chocolate.

    OK – now all you have to do is get all the Cobras out there on the lake together for a little friendly ten lap race…

    …You can call it “The Varnish Cup” …
