I am sure I will have a ton of questions, so thanks in advance.
Welcome, I'm guessing you are on the hard a Demopolis Yacht Basin, and will move to Kingfisher when you splash. We came through there last year early winter, moving our boat south, and stayed for a while at Kingfisher. That used to be a great spot to haul and have work done, but now that the Corp of Engineers has added the park and caused the basin to shoal they don't get enough work to stay fresh. Get it ready, get splashed, and move on. That marina had it's heydey a decade ago.
If you have Chris Craft specific questions shoot me a message. I have a Commander. The Chris Craft owners are a very devoted, yet very segmented group. It's sometimes hard to find answers unless you know where to look.
Also, congratulations, you purchased one of the best values in boating currently.
