This weekend was a beautiful sneak peek at fall: wonderful weather, football, good friends, the lake after Labor Day, and Merlin. Back when boats were made of proper materials like wood, chrome, and brass their lines were drawn for speed and handling not maximum seating capacity. Yes, Merlin is a reproduction of a 1930’s Gold Cup race boat, not an original antique but driving Merlin is an authentic thrill.
It takes just a nudge to get Merlin out of the hole, cruising is a comfortable ride with the long bow and weight of the motor in front of you.


I was invited down to the lake to experience the magic of Merlin and since the light was perfect, we took advantage of the opportunity and broke out the camera gear. Cold molded wood construction and modern big-block power mean little more maintenance than a production plastic boat assuming you take care of your tupperware.
Merlin sort of skids into turns until the inside chine bites and digs then you slingshot out of the turn and accelerate again, skipping down the lake.

When Merlin runs down the lake heads turn and faces light up with big grins, especially from the older generation who have seen the faded pictures and heard the stories. Build a Boat online or locate your local dealer Chris Craft Boats for sale from boat dealers, owners, and brokers.
