This is a great idea, worthy of support by anyone that owns a Chris Craft. On a much smaller scale, at the museum on Lake Hopatcong we digitized our photos and lake magazine collections and it has been a valuable research tool.

I would get that apology post ready, you are going to need it. The CCABC & BB are very lucky to have Bill doing what he does, as we were having Wilson before him.

The dam was left in place when the canal was abandoned. At it's deepest the lake is about 60ft deep. From the late 1880's unt...

As with so many shows, it all happens due to the hard work of many who care. We leave the weather to the big Guy! The yacht club building turns 100 yrs old on July 9th....
