I wanted a classic boat that would work when I turned the key.

I didn't want a 1940 engine that I couldn't get parts for.

This boat has been built using the original Chris Craft plans.

Each piece of hardware was cast from an original Chris Craft piece.

I have been told by more than one collector that there are 3 ways to tell this is not an original. #1 Open the engine hatch and see a freshwater cooled V8 rather than a flat head 4. #2 There is a very slight V at the stern on the bottom of the hull (only visible if on the trailer) that allows the boat to turn better.

The old Chris Crafts had flat bottoms and did not turn as well as this boat. #3 The condition and quality of the mahogany is very superior to the original.

Brand new mahogany looks better than 60 year old wood.

Other than the three items (above) this boat looks like the real thing-except better.

This is a phenomenal boat ready to turn the key and go. 2004 19 Fish Brothers Runabout $65,000 2007 Californian Registration Mercruiser 350ci (5.7L) 260hp Fresh Water Cooled, approximately 100-150 hours Triple Planked Epoxy Bottoms Double Planked Epoxy Sides and Decks Mahogany Planked and Varnished White Pin Striping Kiln Dried White Oak Frames Kiln Dried Honduran Mahogany planking Stainless Steel Fastenings Chrome Plated Brass Hardware Stainless Steel Shaft Aluminum Gas Tank Automatic and Manual Bilge Pumps Burgundy Marine Vinyl Upholstery Ni-Bral Propeller Replacement Cost: 2006 19 Barrel Back Runabout $65,025 Options (see next page) $19,525 Actual Boat Costs $84,550 California Sales Tax $ 6,975 California Registration (Boat and Trailer) $ 2,700 Shipping to California (not including insurance) $ 3,000 Total Extra California Costs $12,675 Total Replacement Cost $97,225 Options: Fresh Water Flush System $ 2,700 Two Battery Electrical System $ 450 Coast Guard Safety Equipment $ 450 Halon Fire System $ 650 Waterline Mooring Cover $ 1,300 Banjo Steering Wheel $ 450 1940 Blue Gauges $ 2,800 Custom Deck Cover $ 375 Courtesy Lights $ 400 Cooper Bronze Anti Fouling Bottom Paint $ 500 Real Gold Leaf Lettering $ 1,200 Fresh Water Cooling $ 2,700 Concealed Alpine Amp and Speakers (for iPod) $ 1,000 Trailer with Fresh Water Flush to Brakes $ 3,700 Trailer Modified for Folding Tongue , misc. $ 850 Total Options $19,525 Contact: Jerry Secor 310-378-832
