Chris Craft Corporation said this quote “Chris-Craft has the name, the prestige, the public acceptance. By 1936-1937 Chris Craft introduced what Seabuddy labels’ the first niche Chris Craft Runabout; the 19’ Special Race Boat.
Funny thing… Chris Craft made 51 of these boats, the same number of 19’ Chris Craft Cobras it made in 1955. Now, there is a new construction wood boat available for a custom new build with a period correct engine for the made-to-order newly built hull or a buyer can direct that a modern V-8 Seabuddy has seen this boat, it is a real head tuner. It was only in 1930, that Chris – Craft Corporation was the boat building company’s new name that Christopher Columbus Smith started business back in about 1874.
This 1964 yacht was built by the custom wood boat builder of Rybovich and Sons, of West Palm Beach, FL. She is like Miss Chevy IV, built in 1952 and not as close to mimicking Miss Chevy II, built in 1947.The 1952 Chevy IV has the broken sheer in the two boat photo. Seabuddy brings these two boats into this discussion as these two boats set the pace for Rybovich sport fishers to come. This fiberglass boat company started making boats in 1955, first calling them Endura Craft boats. Causing Correct Craft to rise to prominence in water skiing was Cypress Gardens, which opened in 1936. While this classic boat was made in the Orlando, FL plant, Correct Craft’s current manufacturing facility, started in 2005, includes two private lakes used to test their boat designs. I was aboard a wonderful classic yacht at the invite of the yacht’s owners this past weekend. This 1961 Preserved Classic Yacht is an excellent example of what made a Matthews Yacht very desirable among cruising yachtsmen.
This is an 26’ exacting example of the bright finished and copper riveted boat, El Lagarto, which has an outstanding racing record.
While her racing record was made while she was under the ownership and driving of George Reis, a long time resident of the Bolton Landing area of Lake George, NY, she was built as Miss Mary for another owner.
Reis took her to his home on the shoreline of Lake George in 1925 and he massaged the boat and motor over the years. As an aside, on a race course the boat was turned left tight to the buoys by closing all the left side vents and then she showed the highest straightaway speed with all the vents open on both sides. In one of my articles on Riva wood boats, I posted some photos and that started our current discussion. Some boat model name choices are Tritone, Ariston, Super Ariston, Aquarama, Super Aquarama, and Long Super Aquarama. I went to print with my model name thoughts in the link I have put into this posting, but I now I believe my I.D. If this boat was a nice but not the best restored copy and perhaps re-powered with a more modern engine she seems to be able to bring around a $50,000 price today. Truth be told, the faster Baby Gar V broke down and Gar Wood had to wait some seven minutes for the IV to catch up so he could transfer to it from V as V had proved to be the faster boat. She is a classic v-drive (some say vee drive) inboard with one bigger center cockpit wood runabout.
This built from scratch 29” long boat is modeled from a privately owned version of a real boat and is shown here for its outstanding workmanship and attention to detail. One interesting fact to seabuddy is that the full-size runabout’s windshield was from the rear window glass used in a car.
One thing to note, the photos here do not show the colors as well as an in person review will. CLAYTON, New York (February 22, 2016) – The Antique Boat Museum (ABM), North America’s premier freshwater nautical museum based in Clayton, NY, announced today the details of the 2016 Antique & Classic Boat Society (ACBS) and ABM jointly hosted Symposium, a weekend full of in-depth and hands-on workshops, to be held May 13-15 at the Museum.

Alzeda was one of the prized boats in the collection of Tom Mittler, who assembled an illustrious collection of prestigious wooden boats including Baby Bootlegger, Dix and Delta. The chromed dual exhaust pipes are curved and taper with the same angles as the boat tail design; This racer is a striking example of Art Deco craftsmanship far ahead of its time.
During World War II the Company converted production to warships…large rescue boats and sub chasers. After the war years, Ventnor built many kinds and sizes of boats, enjoying a solid reputation as a builder of fine vessels. The photos, below,  kindly submitted by Tom Sweeney,  show a complete restoration of a 1947 Ventnor.

The video below captures the initial launch of the restored 27 ft Shepherd… a proud and exciting moment! The Bergerson Boat Company of Springfield, Wisconsin (three miles north of Lake Geneva) offers full service amenities for maintaining, restoring and building wooden boats. There are a lot of wooden boats on Lake Geneva and people have gotten used to seeing them but Shepherds have a styling that just seems to command attention. Lars has a passion for working on wood boats of all shapes and sizes, but the Shepherd might just be his favourite.

Congratulations to owner Andrew Lee and his staff at Sirens Boat Works in Merrickville, Ontario. We are a team of builders and finishers who all share a passion for the craft of wooden boat restoration. The time came when I needed a bigger shop when my client was restoring a 1928 28’ Chris Craft triple cockpit – which was reputed to be owned by Al Capone. I have since brought on qualified team members who all share the passion for wooden boat restoration.
Shawn Neeson: Shawn has been working with me for the past three years, He has a strong background in refinishing and is my right hand man, He also takes care of all accounting duties.
Alexis Nimis: Alexis has been working with me for the past 3 years, She has a strong background in finishing. Myself (Andrew Lee) : I am a trained cabinet maker who has dedicated the past 10 years to all aspects of wooden boat restoration. The Toronto Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society is out in full force with a wonderful display at the entrance of the 2016 Toronto International Boat Show. If you’re heading to the show this week, be sure to take time to check out these stunning vintage boats. It has consistently advanced from the beginning and maintained the continued success for its merchants. So, this first niche Chris Craft Runabout is about a rare a boat as there is in the Chris Craft line-up ,just like a 19’ Cobra is!
Micheals Classic Boat Show had both of these rare boats, fully restored in its annual June event. The name had changed many times to allow for various partners in the years between these dates.
That is as they say… the boat that they personally want to go home with after the show has ended. She is a center engine (engine box in the middle of the cockpit), shaft-drive, inboard powerboat. Here seabuddy wants to share with you the delightful two hours I had aboard a 42’ classic wood cabin cruiser in Tuckerton, NJ. Then, there was a switch to yachts using fiberglass hulls from the Halmatic Company in England.
It made a 16 horsepower custom 35’ gas powered boat that set the record for an Atlantic Ocean crossing in 1912.
She won the Gold Cup three times, the Presidents Cup three times, the National Sweepstakes twice, and other racing awards and recognitions. These are some additional Riva boat photo images taken by me on the same day of the same boat.
These are single and twin engine boat models and perhaps the first point would be to decide if this classic has one or two engines.
She is unusal in that she has hatches on her aft deck, not the main stream for this model, sun lounge pad that Ted Kennedy once made infamous. She is one of only 28 boats made in this model in 1932 by the famous Gar Wood boat building company. This one; with its very high level of a truly total restoration, all correct parts, it’s level of fit and finish that must be seem to be fully appreciated, may very well bring more along the lines of a $250,000 price if it was to be a classic wooden boat for sale. Gar Wood raced his 33 foot Baby Gar V and her sister Baby Gar IV both built to a design by Chris Craft’s Christopher Columbus Smith. Chris Craft and Gar Wood had promoted the idea of a bottom step to increase speed in a runabout. All had these Liberty Engines for power that had been designed by Packard Motors and Hall Scott Aircraft Engines. John Into, a boat modeler for 50 years and a published author on boat modeling, even discussed this boat model with the real boat’s naval architect, a designer named Robert Rioux, who designed all of the Century Boat Company’s boat models at the time this boat was conceived.
Let me tell you, Into got those color shades right as a match to the real boat he was modeling. Additionally, there will be sessions on getting the best performance from both inboard and outboard motors, marine castings and pattern making, and researching your boat. Fees cover all lesson materials and select meals – Friday (dinner), Saturday (breakfast and lunch), and Sunday (breakfast). Mittler would frequently seek out Canadian boats, as the Canadians had a reputation for building extraordinary boats in both style and performance. This boat was designed just after Amelia Earhart became the first women to fly across the Atlantic Ocean. The hatch engine cover was one the first to use the wood and chrome grill in the scoop for ventilation.
This raised coaming has built-in navigation lights that allows the steering wheel to sit at the perfect angle for spirited driving. One of the innovations from the war was the use of lighter weight plywood for construction.
The boat was designed in 1989, 27 years ago now, and she was launched by Hodgdon Yachts in 1990. The deck was sprayed with 2k Urethane for better UV protection and hull was sprayed with two part urethane Plum Crazy Purple pearl with Sassy Grass Green waterline with ghost skulls on aft sides and 2 coats of clear Urethane. Although I have not seen this boat, judging from the photos and text, it seems to me like a heck of a buy at $45,000, particularly as a tandem axle trailer is included in the sale). He had restored many Chris Crafts, Centurys, Lymans and Streblow boats, but we would rarely see any Shepherds on Geneva Lake. We were able to find one that fit the bill, a 1954 27’ Express Cruiser that was out in Buffalo, NY. We’ve noticed it being out on our Shepherd and had several customers remark that they get a lot of “thumbs up” and people taking pictures of their boat.
This company was off our radar until a recent tip alerted us to yet another quality boat restorer. They were looking to have a restoration expert on site to service and repair the many wooden boats he stores at his boatyard.
He has Boatbuilding in his heritage and is a natural when it comes to quality craftsmanship and truly understanding wooden boats.
She is extremely detail oriented, understands wood, and is able to create flawless finishes. With a U lift on site its easy to lift boats right out of the Rideau Canal and put them in the shop for work.
In conjunction with this year’s theme for the upcoming Gravenhurst Summer show, the display features two Greavette boats, a 22 foot utility with painted sides and a 24 foot Greavette Sheerliner.

His current projects include two vintage Shepherds and a 1950’s kit boat (originally built in a Toronto living room). Chris –Craft has been the leader, is the leader, and will continue to lead” in the early 1930s..
Plus, Chris-Craft boats used thinner dimension framing as well as thinner planking in the bottom for this 19’ Special Race Boat model. Her owners are members of the Sunnyland Club of the ACBS as well as the Chesapeake Bay Chapter Club. First powered by twin gas engines, she has been re-powered years ago with twin Cummins diesels for a cruising speed of 23 MPH and a wide open throttle speed of 31 MPH. The boat is finished in Pennant Red, one of the five colors that were offered in 1960 by the boat builder.
But it was best known for the Cypress Gardens Water Ski Show, which featured Correct Craft ski boats. The Ski Nautique name was added in 1961 when they began producing fiberglass water ski boats using a mold they brought from Leo Bentz. It is open, filled with bright sunshine with views outside, and has a bigger sense of space than the square footage that you walk on. These finished hull forms were shipped to Matthews Yachts in Port Clinton, Ohio from  1969 till the Matthews business closed in 1975.There these English fiberglass hulls had decks, deckhouses, engines and the cabin interior added to the hull. She was first raced in 1922 and only retired from active competition after racing for the 1937 season.
Then, in 1931, he completely re-did the boat’s bottom with a series of ?” high shingles and after-of-the-shingle controllable dual vents that allowed the vacuum to be released that the steps created.
I have seen some records that suggest that she was last sold in the 2010 time frame powered with a 500 Hp Chevy engine for just under $200,000.
Plus, here is a link back to the other write-up and pictures of the same Classic Wood Riva Boat taken the same day as these were. She and IV raced down the Hudson River alongside the Twentieth Century Limited train on the river edge RR tracks from Albany to NYC. They are usually credited with making the refinements that made it a useful race boat feature.
He had gotten World War I aircraft engines as war surplus at bargain rates as he had bought piles of them at a time. This boat that was modeled by John was a wood classic utility runabout, it is one of the last wood ones, as Century Boat Co. If you like his work and want to better understand boat modeling for yourself, ask him to autograph a copy of his book for your home boating library.
The weekend will also feature a presentation by Tony Mollica on the history of a local boat manufacturer, Fitzgerald & Lee, and its association with Gar Wood. Some would argue he was taking the best Canadian boats to the USA and that was a cultural shame.
Twin V-8 gas engines of 450 HP running Arneson surface drives pushed her to 75 mph, 65.4 knots.
Surprisingly, even Curtis, a traditional restorer, can be persuaded to use epoxy in certain applications! These changes made a big difference compared to their other 19’ by 6’2” sized runabouts that were made by Chris Craft boats for the masses. This was the way one went after sailfish, tuna, and white and blue marlin for sport fishing fun. The boat was a show-stopper that brought smiles and sparked conversations among many show-goers as they walked the docks of this 17-acre show. By then they were selling about $3,000,000 in boats, which were made in three boat-building plants, located in nearby Cambridge, MD as well as in California and Indiana. There is seating for five, two in front of the engine box and three on a bench behind the engine at her stern .
Correct Craft, Ski Nautique, and Nautique are names that are imbedded in water skiing history.
Nautique’s boat bottom shapes really went wild starting with the 1989 models where stepped chines, spray relief pockets, along with a variable planning hull dead rise became standard on their ski boats. The Galley and dinette are at another level, but the main salon ceiling line stays at one, full height, even over these two lower level interior features. Looking upon this jazzy roadster of the lakes one cannot help but see the aero inspired design in her lines. She is cold-molded, longitudinally framed with deep webs of 12mm ply, cleated top and bottom with fir caps.
The boat had been completely gutted and it’s parts were scattered amongst multiple buildings.
The boat was originally commissioned and owned by Louis Silverwood of Silverwood Dairies in London, Ontario. For instance, while there are different engine choices, it is perhaps fair to say that one of these boats were 20% faster.
Seabuddy hopes that you made it to the show or plan on putting this show on your calendar in the future years. The family ran the company and kept it private until they sold the entire corporation in early 1960. She has a flat bottomed transom (not a deep vee), no keel, and twin inboard shaft drives (no bullet to house the F-N-R gears of multiple outboard engines exposed in the wake of the hull, as the transmissions are inboard within the hull).
Raymond Loewy, noted designer of a few early 50’s Studebakers as well as the Avanti cars developed the design for this and other boats for the Dorsett Plastic Corporation. Her bottom is essentially a flat bottom with a very gentle arc athwartships across her running surface.
Correct Craft was founded in 1925 and has been the keystone builder of boats for water skiing competition and water ski shows. Light weight for that time, they were offered in boats by Gar Wood at horsepower rating from 400 Hp to as high as 550 Hp. Enjoy the photos of the restorations-in-progress and the story of their arrival at Lake Geneva below. Sorting through the parts and getting it put back together was much like doing a jigsaw puzzle. With room for eight persons, it will accelerate level to a plane up to 41 knots with a 150 h.p.
The Greavette is powered by a 317 Chrysler Hemi engine and Borg Warner Velvet Drive, which was all recently rebuilt. Then the raised toe rail at the outside edge of the foredeck and the presence of a siren are clues. It took us about a year to get it all back together and make the upgrades the owner wanted. Seabuddy recalls here a personal conversation he had with Al Hegg years back about his Century boats and about how hard a time he had getting his Century water ski boat models legalized for water ski competition.
Other designers may want to squeeze in a third stateroom where the dinette is located, but the functionally of a dinette cannot be over-stated in a boat used for cruising.
Miss London is in original shape and is due for an overhaul to bring her back to 100%…or just put her in the water and enjoy.
That small almost custom boat building shop was supplemented by a bigger plant in Marysville, MI. The Baby Gar thirty three foot runabout was still being made in Algonac along with a 40’ cruiser. It was in 1932 that this 18’ twin cockpit (or split cockpit) runabout shown here was introduced.
