Cool to see your projects and I love those old Chris Crafts. I used to have a 27' Constellation from the mid 60's. Love the lines and interiors of these older boats. Looking forward to seeing more of your upgrades!

Whats up neighbor? We're just down the road from you in Seabrook. Did your boat used to be at Seabrook Marina on B dock?

Started painting the hardtop today with Interlux Brightside. Got two coats down and Monday Iíll sand it down with 3000 grit and put a third on.

Iím thoroughly impressed with Interlux paints right now. Iím not even using 333 and itís laying down so smooth!

Very nice project!
Following is a link to a video of a similar vintage Chris Craft. It belongs to a friend of mine. His father bought it new in 68, I think. The video was made by my friendís son. It was filmed on Biscayne Bay and the Coral Gables Waterway. The boat has never been restored but itís been kept in a boat house all itís life.

Very nice! If I’m not mistaken that is the highly sought after 35’ Commander. This was Dick Averys’s baby and the first model he was given free reign on the design. That stepped shear is gorgeous! If I ever come across a 35’ I’d be hard pressed to pass it up.

What a fun, cute boat!!

Gotta love calm water vids like that!

Chick hanging off starboard, anchor with line and no need to even store. Speedy Lee III from Coral Gables FL was made during the true kingdom of CC's as the pronounced best in general and affordable pleasure boats!

Started installing my AC today. Placed it under the front dinette seat. I started by adding a base for it, and then sealing it off with expanding foam so that it canít suck bilge smells or engine room fumes. Added in my Grocco ARG-500 strainer and my March 250gph pump. Wired everything up and I was quite surprised it worked!! Iíve just go to do some prettying up, install my ductwork, and vents and Iíll be done!
