Gentlemen,restoring a 1941 17 ft chriscraft barrelback. I have learned from museum in Va that they manufactured 425 total only 5 were produced with port side steering and my boat was the last to have portside. My question of the day is do the other 4 still exist. THANKS for any info. Jake

If you know the hull numbers, check the ACBS directory and, of course, the CCABC registry. If your lucky, an owner of an existing example may be tuned in.
