Harold & Lorna, World Waterspeed Champions is a documentary film highlighting the almost-forgotten exploits of Harold and Lorna Wilson, who raced their Miss Canada boats into international fame.
This is the story of the craftsmen who created the incomparable wooden launches of Ontario's famous Muskoka Lakes district. The names Ditchburn, Duke, Greavette, and Minett are synonymous with top-of-the-line vintage watercraft.
Most of the boats seen on these waters were built by local craftsmen, and many of these were "one-off" craft reflecting both the particular desires of the individual purchaser and the skilled craftsmanship of the builder. Location: Virginia Beach, VA Chris Craft Capri questions This is my first thread!
Location: Missouri Dan, I have a 57 capri and have the same trould finding the hull numbers.
Location: maine Chris Craft stamped the same serial numbers onto major wooden framing parts.
Location: Missouri Al, The strut pad that you mention, is it held on with wood screws and is were the drive shaft passes through the bottom of the boat?
Location: maine That number should also be found on all major parts of the original boat. Location: Virginia Beach, VA That should be a part number if it is on a bronze piece of hardware. If I had a boat that needed a title and couldn't find a serial #, I'd stamp a long number onto some obvious part like the inside of the transom, paint it, discover it, and if anyone ever actually checked, they would be a bone head anyway.
I live 20 minutes away from the Mariner's museum and I'm dying to get the info packet on my boat. Location: Missouri You mention a title, does the title have any infromation on it that will help me identify the boat and obtain the orginal plans?
Location: Missouri Dan, is your capri's nose in good shape, The first two top side fames on my rotted and an attempt was made to repair it.
Location: Virginia Beach, VA The stem was replaced and has since cracked, but I can try to take some close-up pictures for you. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.
Location: Pennsylvania Looking for Info (55 Chris Craft Continental) I just recently inherited a 1955 Chris Craft Continental 22' from my uncle. Location: Milwaukee, WI 5200 is an adhesive caulk that doesn't do too well on below the waterline wood.

Location: Eustis, FL Unless that boat has been kept in a cover area for several decades, it's unlikely you'll be able to save the bottom planks.

Location: South Florida USA You might join this group, I'm sure there are several guru's there that are painfully aware of the particulars of olde chris's. Tim, it sounds like you've found a good example of the type, but again it needs to be professionally accessed.
Location: Eustis, FL If Barret Jackson's auction is an example, the clones of 1970 hemi 'Cuda's are commanding nearly as much as the originals, in some cases more, depending on craftsmanship. Location: Eustis, FL Well of course you lose points at a concours show, judging restoration and original condition craft! Originally Posted by PAR Well of course you lose points at a concours show, judging restoration and original condition craft! Location: Eustis, FL Very few yacht do the concours shows or will have restorations to this level of analness.

Plans are complete and lofted to full size, frames, stringers, transom assembly, hatches etc…includes a detailed set up plan showing heights from baseline and spacings. The Custom Barrelback 19 of the same era may also be of intrest to Chris Craft enthusiasts. This iconic racing boat was originally designed by George Crouch in 1924 and went on to win the 1924 and 1925 APBA Gold Cup. It has been said that the 16 foot Gar Wood speedster is, pound for pound, the most valuable classic production speed boat in the world. There are some 15 frames, 2 keels, twin hatch assembly, vertical cleats, gas tank fixing, drivers bench seat, breast hook, front and rear stems with knees etc. This is the story about 3 of them - in a place called Muskoka - and how for a moment in time, a series of seemingly unrelated events led to the creation of some of the world's most beautiful boats.
This bundle includes Classic Boats of the 1000 Islands, Boatbuilders of Muskoka, and the DVD, Harold & Lorna, World Waterspeed Champions. These shops, together with many lesser-known ones, set standards for artistry, woodworking, and finishing that were unsurpassed anywhere.
The Boatbuilders of Muskoka tells the story of these craftsmen and the principal shops that built some of the finest wooden boats in North America.
The two frames were cut away from the stem so I no longer have a patteren to make the two replacement frames.


The seams appear to have had some sort of goo in a tube pushed into them, which typically means the planks will be badly damaged as you attempt to clean the seams. Judging by the apparent width of the bottom seams, you have at least some fastener hole repairs ahead, if not wholesale frame restoration and replacement. You have a true classic and the value will be significantly diminished by taking any path but the original.
I can understand why an epoxy bottom would be better than a traditional bottom, no question. This is the key, as in most things, value is based on the level of craftsmanship, so a well done original build up restoration, may not be as valuable as a very well done 5200 job.
Most owners want their yachts to be easier to care for, less costly to maintain and more water tight. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. Boatbuilders of Muskoka is the essential reference piece for a history of Muskoka's greatest boat builders, including Ditchburn, Greavette, Minett-Shields, Duke, and Port Carling. In the 80, the engine hatch on mine was also covered with white vinal which made a nice place for us kinds to lay on the way from the ramp to the island we spent the day at. At the very least and this would be the rare exception, the garboards will need to be replaced and the bottom refastened.
In fact any modification from original, no matter how intelligent or innovative it might be, will cause a judge to ding you with deductions, at this type of show.
The value of a concours winner is only worth anything, to someone else (potential buyer) interested in maintaining the yacht in this condition.
If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. Built roughly around the same era as their famous barrelbacks many of the lines are very similar if not identical. When and if I find my hull numbers I will let you know where I find them and if you would do the same for me. I suspect this isn't the case and all of the bottom planks need to be replaced, but you might get lucky. They're judging on originality and presentation, not durability, practicability or resale value. Again, most want to use their boats, not part it on a trailer and leave it in the barn until the next show. A concours show boat isn't a boat, it's a trophy, mounted in a case and pulled out to test it's shine against other, none used trophy boats occasionally.
