...then pick out the loose filler in the screw holes. Tighten the screws that you can and fill the holes with a wood filler. After that apply Smith Penetrating Epoxy or also called CPES to the bottom as a rot prohibitor from the waterline down. Tape and fill the seams with SikaFlex 291 and let dry....

Re: 1937 Chris Craft 19' Custom Runabout Bottom Woes

Sorry to dig up a dead thread, but I ended up ordering 2 qts of Pettit Copper Bronze last year but didn't end up having time over the summer to do anything with it. This summer I started scraping and the bottom paint started coming off in sheets (What a fun job! :lol: ). So now that I am down to bar...

1937 Chris Craft 19' Custom Runabout Bottom Woes

So I'm kind of at an impasse for my boat, the bottom has been in not great shape since I inherited it from my grandfather. The first year he bought the boat he drained the oil into the bilge :( ... that was in the late 80s. Since I would say probably 2002ish I have pulled the floor boards and scrubb...

Model K Distributor Rotor

The rotor in the distributor spontaneously exploded last weekend when I was out and I am having a hell of a time trying to find a new one... It is in a '37 CC Runabout and it is an autolite dist. Can they still be bought new? and if not, does anyone have used ones for sale? Thanks!
