327: 210hp vs 230hp

I'm curious to know what CC did to get an extra 20 horsepower when they introduced the 230hp version of the 327 in 1969. Can anyone shed some light for me?

Thanks,
Marc

18' Cavalier

Well I can't say for sure, but the museum could. According to Jerry Conrad of the Mariner's Museum and author of Chris Craft - The Essential Guide , excluding the estimated 93,000 un-numbered (and un-carded) kit boats, only about 400 hull cards of the remaining 119,000+ boats produced through 1977 a...

Carver boats

My dad had a 1972 28' Carver Express Hardtop in 1979. It was wood, and I remember that 1973 was the first year of fiberglass Carver production... at least for the 25', 28', and 33' Express and Mariner lines. Not sure about the Santa Cruz and Ranger models.

Batting under vinyl upholstery?

Does anyone know what, if any, material was used under the deck and cockpit vinyl in 1960's CC division and Cavalier division utilities? I read that Century used thin cotton as batting material, and was wondering if CC used a similar material under the deck and cockpit upholstery in it's models.
