Never liked those nylon impellers.

Rusted in place or full of debris

Me too. Corrosion, erosion and broken parts.

Looks like some sand in thereto

Are those gears original?

Crusty!

Wow!

One of the best classic (Bull Nose) Chris Craft runabouts in my opinion. Our family bought a new 56 Capri for Portage Lakes and Lenny and Vi Leighton (Leighton's Boat House) drove their Cadillac to the Chris Craft Cadillac Michigan Chris Craft plant to trailer it home. It was an almost daily cruiser and ski boat for years before we bought a new one with a V8 in 61. Really priceless to own and care for. Good luck on the great project! Look forward to progress pics.

Original Chris-Craft or Alloy trailer?

Looks like a nice original boat to start with.

What our customers are saying


The Motor Boat Garage crew did a fantastic job on stringer, floor, and transom rebuild on my ‘88 Century Coronado. Made improvements and the quality is much better than factory. I would highly recommend this shop for your boat repair/restoration needs!

Our ‘67 SkiffCraft has been given new life by Brian and the crew at Motor Boat Garage! Wonderful new engine, glistening paint job and custom interior woodwork, including seating and staving, we could not be happier with the communication and quality of work. They are a joy to know and work with!
