Re: 1940 19' Chris-Craft Custom: Orange Deck Seams

Matt, I was hoping we could mount an expedition to "Raise Satin Doll" which could be a great series on Woody Boater! I actually received a very nice note from Paul Harrison about Satin Doll, which now resides in Michigan and was renamed "Noah's Ark" Mike from Maritime Classics cares for the boat for...

Re: 1940 19' Chris-Craft Custom: Orange Deck Seams

Am I to understand from the previous post that there is an orange deck seam 19' 1940 Custom at the bottom a a lake in Canada that might be available for purchase? I'm hoping that the wood is preserved due the the lack of oxygen and due to the cold temperatures(similar to "Ice Man" and HMS Mary Rose)...

Re: 1940 19' Chris-Craft Custom: Orange Deck Seams

Good afternoon Don, Yes, I understand that some late 1939 boats may have also had the orange seams as well. I my opinion, the 1940 19' Custom with the orange deck seams and boot stripe, Bugatti windshield, the sharper bow (than the 1941 and later models) along with the tan leather pigskin interior a...

Re: 1940 19' Chris-Craft Custom: Orange Deck Seams

I received a reply from Jerry, the person who posted the orange deck seam 1940 19' Custom on Craig's List. The Hull number is #48706. The boat now has modern power and was "Restored not Rebuilt in 2010-2011 by Bruce Gibson in Gig Harbor, WA" Is anyone familiar with Bruce Gibson and his restoration w...

Re: 1940 19' Chris-Craft Custom: Orange Deck Seams

Dean,
Thank you! I looked and see the boat (Hull #48706) it looks beautiful. Exactly what I'm looking for with the exception that is the engine had been replaced with modern power. I have a call into the seller.
I'll keep you posted on what I learn.
Thank you for the heads up!

Re: 1940 19' Chris-Craft Custom: Orange Deck Seams

Jim,
I will definitely specify the 19' length Custom runabout, as the 23' and 27' boats are so rare and are a bit pricey.
Thank you,

Re: 1940 19' Chris-Craft Custom: Orange Deck Seams

Good morning Joanroy,
There were a few 19' foot Chris-Craft Customs in the late 1939, early 1940 production which came from the factory with orange deck seams and a green boot stripe and tan pig skin interiors. They are in my opinion, the most elegant of the "Barrel Back" runabouts.

Good morning Matt, Thank you for your reply! Yes, Seth is restoring one that has a different type of windshield than the usual Bugatti style. I have spoken with the nice folks at Katz's Marina and they said they can find another one and restore it for me. However, a very wise man has posted articles...

Does anyone know what hull #'s were delivered with the Burnt Orange Deck Seams? I have been told the early production 1940 boats were delivered with the orange seams but I am not sure if anyone knows what hull numbers this included or if it was noted on the Hull Cards. Any additional information tha...

Re: Looking for the best 19' Chris-Craft Custom Availible

Maritime,
You're Exactly correct! I am looking for a very nicely restored and correct boat like "Noah's Ark" I understand why these owners aren't looking to let her go at this time, but if you or any of the other members here on Boat Buzz, hear of a similar boat I am interested.
Thank you,

My preference is for a 1940 with a 130hp or larger engine and orange deck seams. However, I wish to find a early 1939-1940 with Bugatti windshields and a boat which has been alr...
