Greetings,
Mr. PM. I would say it's a sedan but I don't know how CC would have designated it. I have a friend who had a similar vintage CC but with an aft cabin and a center cockpit. Sort of like some Albin 27's. Even had cranks to roll the saloon windows up and down.

Yes it's a sedan. More than that it's a very typical sedan except it's fairly large for a sedan. Most sedans are 24 to 30'.

Babbitt bearings? Depends on the engine. Never heard of a Ford w BB but GM had many. I think Chrysler products mostly or all had inserts. I'd bet on it but not a large sum. Buick engines were all Babbitt until 1953. Chevolets were mostly Babbitt also.

I looked in my 1953 Motor Boating magazine and saw an ad for Kermath gasoline marine engines. There was in the line-up a 6cyl OHV engine that made 275hp at 2400 rpm. A Lehman would be but a pipsqueak compared to the Kermath w more than double the power at only 2400rpm. Most Buick straight eights made about 115hp at 3600rpm.

PacMule if you were to buy that boat she would be easily driven even though she has a straight run aft. She's narrow and light compared to a trawler. Even w her gas power she should burn no more fuel than a typical trawler.

I wonder if that straight 8 is a newer engine than the hull. Seems like the 8's were around mostly in the 40's and 50's. The Chryslers of that vintage were very well made.

Ski,
Maybe PM will tell us soon. If it's an OHV it brobably is a Bar/Buick/ auto conversion. If it's a propper marine engine it's almost certainly a Chrysler.

Chances of it being anything else is slim.

But if one happened to have a Chrysler water cooled exhaust manifold or a Bar manifold for a Buick it would'nt be hard to find a good car engine "in the days".

many yrs ago I had a 36 ft CC with twin straight 8 CRYS with a 3 to 1 trannys one engine turned right and the other left hand.they ran smooth as silk. I made a charter boat out of it. the right hand engine had a reverse firing order, I found out the hard way one day when I had trouble.they had up draft carbs

Listed as 1938 CC 35'. Quite similar lines although there's more of an aft overhang in the saloon roof. It's not unreasonable to assume there were only 3 of these made as I understand CC was quite amenable custom building.
