Very Early Hacker Boat Co Photos – Rare Classic Boat Original Photos Found! More To Come!
The other day we featured some old photos of Sweet Pea so today we go back further in time and feature a small sample of the rare ebay photos we snatched up and scanned for all to enjoy. We are considering donating them to the appropriate museums that show interest. Or a family member. This was part of a large collection found in a storage unit in Florida. These have been scanned and cleaned up.
What is special about some of these photos is the writing on the back, which brings these to a very personal level. And in true Woody boater fashion, hard to read. Sorry. Maybe there is a family member out there that is shocked by seeing a photo of Grandpa in his youth!
And below here are some more professional photos that we havent seen before, but feel like they were reproduced for press purposes.
TUNE IN TOMORROW! WE THINK WE HAVE THE EARLIEST KNOWN PHOTO OF CHRIS CRAFT 1922 WITH A PRODUCTION BOAT #1 Here is the back of the photo as a tease! What? You think I am not going to milk this for all it is!
Fantastic photo’s of the CC Packard 26! I’ll be back tomorrow for CC number one. What a wicked tease, but thanks for saving the history.
It will be worth it. We asked Tony Malica if he had seen the photo and he said he hadn’t. Its also a great photo as art. These are very small snap shots. But huge in there value to our culture.
I second what Troy said 👍👍
Very cool historical photos. Thanks for sharing.
It might be a cool idea to find the location of these shots while up in Michigan for some sort of event?
Super cool stuff!!! Thanks for sharing and I can’t wait for tomorrow.
Inspirational. Thanks for sharing and saving the history.
neat as hell……old pics are wonderful and often not for the intended target of the shot but also for the stuff in the background.

Very anxious to see #1!
Wow !…More! …More!…
That 1923 Packard Chris Craft looks a lot like Rainbow IX that is in Muskoka.
It is. We have been talking already and gonna do a cool story
Wow! As Wilson said, “more”
You should contact Tom Flood as he worked for Hacker. Also I think his dad worked for Hacker.
