HOLLYWOOD,
My friend. I like reading your posts and I meant no offense .. well very little anyway. But needing a $500,000 boat house to keep a wood boat in to justify having one is IMO saying you wouldn't have one .. no way. But I'm not thinking low of you or any boat I've ever seen you with. Haha but at least your statement you see the value in a wood boat and that under certian circumstances you would have one. The guys i'm talk'in about would'nt do either.

And at the very least considering everybody the effort is made to talk about wood boats and there's no doubt they are greatly admired.

Haha you're right .. I own no wood boats. But I'm considering building one.

This nice but very old (1937) Chris Craft is now priced at $19K and could probably be had for less. Got twin Yanmars.

Eric,

Old ad? I haunt Wolfe Marine and that appears by the background, the location. No, I have to agree with those who have posted regarding making the switch from wood to plastic.
Dollar for dollar if the intent is to enjoy purchasing a finely maintained wood boat and run that maintenance out for a few years and then dump the boat is one thing. You can buy, like the boat here depicted, in fine shape for little money compared to a newer plastic boat with the same accommodations. or you can forgo that and purchase a plastic boat that while demanding a level of maintenance it is of a different quality and hopeful, less expense with a better selling market down the road. Yes, either and both modes of boats require attention. In my case, too much to do in a short season for this aging body.

Hi Al,
I don't know the CC's condition much more than you do. Walk by her when I go to Willy. The newer Yanmars is a very big plus IMO and not many old boats are twins either.
If she were a sedan like this boat (not for sale) I'd probably be interested myself. I'm leaning toward getting out of big boats altogether.

barnacles what old tub?
That's an awful thing to say about your boat.

I absolutely love wooden boats. But after owning and maintaining this one for 23 years I had had enough. If either: a) I had enough money to pay a yard to maintain her or b) I had the energy that I had 30 years ago to maintain her myself, then I would still have her.

Daves boat is about as cool as it gets. I bet you loved pulling up to docks with that boat. There is an appreciation of wood boats in Maine and the PNW, that you don't find most places.
Don't hink the irony is lost on me about Johns Bay Boats, Peter Kass is about the last wood boatbuilder in Maine turning out commercial boats with yacht finishes. Mainiacs don't like to acknowledge that he is a Masshole.

Mainers are tolerant. Sometimes they overlook serious birth defects.

Thanks for posting pics Eric and David .My hat's off to the guys that keep them up . We've been adding teak and mahogany to William for the last three years . That may be as close as I will ever get to owning a woodie . I still have some teak in the lumber pile and as much mahogany as I want at the lumber yard .

Craig,
I'm quite sure she's a CC by the shape of the ports and the caprail. But no .. I have no other pics of her. I love that kind of fly bridge. And this one has three big cabins.

Marty,
Since we're friends I wish you were closer w all that mahogany.

Eric the mahogany is not genuine , it's African . That's all we can get these days . Harder to work than genuine with some crazy grain . The heartwood is heavy and hard .

Not Wolfe Marine - note the breakwater in the background. And the floating docks. And the seawater.

Edmonds?

Craig,
Note the first picture. Your CC may be almost the last boat on the float. Definitely a bull nosed Chris. These are from a different year.

See the grey anchor in the last pic. This is the same as my Dreadnought .. except for the very nice paint. Wonder if he's ever used it?

You guys have got it going on out there . These boats are beautiful. It would not do me any good to visit the PNW with all the interesting boats to check out , I'm sure I would want to stay . There is not much here on our dock to look at anymore . Jimbob with his Eagle 32 has moved on further south . There is a 41 ft Defever, a 40 ft Ocean Alexander that needs a new owner ( it's looking rough ) . We have two steel sistership shanti house boats that were built by a couple brothers back in the 70's that are kinda cool . One is 50 ft with a Detroit and the other is a 40 ft with a Ford Leaman .The rest is just a bunch of ugly plastic houseboats and pontoons .
Every time something cool comes in for an overnight stay I'm like a kid at Christmas.

Romsdale

I always thought that Romsdales are the most elegant and beautiful live-aboard exploring vessels on the face of the Earth!
When I was looking for projects to build a boat, I tried to find DIY projects similar. I could never find them!
Later on, when Rainha Jannota was already framed, I found very interesting projects from Stephen R Seaton. He had interesting ideas similar to the Romsdale
