Chris Craft made 786 of these 19 foot Capri wooden runabouts over four years in the late 1950’s. Proper use of modern materials within the original Chris Craft mahogany wood planks and wood framing structure allow for the easy trailer, launch, and use of this classic boat. Hey, go late enough into the spring-summer and Dave will maybe have some gas in the 20 gallon tank and you might be able to go for a final test ride with the boat owner. 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. Location: Eustis, FL From the one image with the tractor pulling her, I can see some distortion at the turn of the bilge, in the last third of the hull. Do not under estimate the amount of work, effort and time it takes to get this boat in just good condition, let alone restored or Bristol condition. If the investment is fairly substantial, then get it surveyed by a well qualified person, familiar with the type.
Location: Eustis, FL I'm not sure at which point (year) they started to use polysulfide in the laps. To answer the original question, yep, it's Sea Skiff hull with one of the higher trim levels, which were available on the larger skiff models. I ask because I haven't been able to find any information on this model of Sea Skiff at all. Below is a 32' skiff, though the styling changed as it's a 1961, very similar to yours in many regards.
You can join the Chris Craft Antique Boat Club and find a wealth of information about the boat. Location: Eustis, FL Ned, on this boat I'm fairly sure every third frame is sawn in the forward sections.
Location: Eustis, FL It's cheaper, faster to build and install sawn frames.
Location: Eustis, FL Sea Skiff is a generic name given to lapstrake hull shapes of a common warped bottom model.


When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. Possibly the most famous wooden boat worldwide, the Aquarama was an intricate design with a ground breaking approach to both comfort and quality. She was designed with a bizarre frame set up ranging from 6 inches and up, most likely to accommodate the running gear of the time. This version has all frames spaced at 18″ and the double stringers for twin V8 installation! Builders may also scale down the plans to create a proportionally smaller craft, even down to model size, say 1:10.
Floors and cockpits are full defined as is the anchor well, rear sun lounge, transom and rear deck skid. It’s a very seaworthy and proven hull for those looking to build a large offshore boat for friends and family. Great cruiser for Lake Minnetonka - You'll look good cruising the lake in this restored 1966 25 foot Chris-Craft Sea Skiff. She is having a “no soak” trailer able bottom as old wood needed to be replaced and the owner wants to take her anywhere, drop her in for a quick spin, and without any need to soak up or swell the bottom planks on this bottom.
When this boat sits in the water, ready for a quick spin around the lake, one does not see anything different than what she showed when she was first built.
Stop by Dave Hannam’s boat restoration shop in Annapolis see this stylish Chris Craft Capri wooden runabout undergo its steps into a thing of beauty for yourself. If the price isn't especially difficult to manage, then be prepared for a lot of costly repairs.
Connecticut Those lapstrake Chris Crafts were well built boats (plywood planking 'glued' at the seams with polysulfide adhesive).
Connecticut You might also take a look at the web site 'vintage marine sales literature' they have a LOT of original sales catalogs for sale. Connecticut Par, now that you mention it that does sound right (about those few sawn frames up forward), never did fully understand the logic of them.
Connecticut Ah, hadn't thought about the ease of framing in the foredeck if you have a couple of sawn frames to work off of. I can’t see any advantage in trying to replicate the vessel historically as fittings and hardware if sourced would be overly priced and ill-fitting.


The Cobra has all frames and deck beams defined, floor timbers, dash, transom, seating, original stringers, stem, hatch assembly and the dreaded fin! Other areas where I'd typically find issues would be the garboards, particularly under the engine(s) where they planks get oil soaked, the stem, gripe and cheek pieces along the forward potions of the keel, transom framing, rub rail and sheer strake rot.
Only those with deep pockets, considerable repairing skills or the willingness to work hard for several years should take on a project of this scope.
Chris Craft was one of the pioneers in this type of light weight lap construction with several other subtle, but innovative weight and part reducing methods. At 27 feet a single Mercruiser coupled to a Bravo II should be ample to launch and power this proven hull. This doesn't include the usually locations, such as the hood ends of the planks, working plank to frame and lap fasteners, transom corners, all deck structures, etc. An example would be the Lyman in comparison to the Chris Craft had a finer enter and more flare and a harder bilge turn aft.
This version is from the original sheet plans and a full size building jig is also included.
The entire assembly can then be mated to the vessel using added checking blocks included with the plans.
I have a 1960 Sea Skiff with original planking in many locations, with it's polysulfide still doing it's job, 50 years later. Both are still warped bottoms of similar configuration, but subtle variations to offer something different in the performance envelope. They were light, handled fairly well, especially if twin shafted and everyone likes the lapped hulls. Of the two hulls mentioned, the Lyman was softer riding in a chop, but required 15% more power to get the same speed as the Chris Craft.
