Re: Carter WCFB Base Gaskets

Hi Jim,
Yes, both sides had different gaskets. I can not post pictures on this site for some reason. I've tried multiple times and don't understand why the attachments options does not work. I post pictures on many other sites and don't understand why this one is so difficult!

Re: Do I need 4 wheel drive?

I have been on ramps with various size boats over the years and most of the time I did not need 4-wheel drive. But on some occasions with low tides or steep ramps, I would need 4-wheel drive to stop rear wheel spin and also help with added torque and power.

Re: New Owner 1963 17' Chris-Craft Ski Boat

No problem Don. I belong to many other forums and never had difficulty uploading pictures. I also tried the attachments button below and still get errors. I'm hoping someone can chime in since I would like to share pictures of my boat and show some of the work.

Re: New Owner 1963 17' Chris-Craft Ski Boat

Thanks Don! The boat is really cool and has great looks. For all I know, the paperwork that came could have all the wrong information from what I'm learning here on this site. I will dig around for a hull number to really confirm Big Chief's identity. I did submit an email the Mariner Museum for a h...

Re: New Owner 1963 17' Chris-Craft Ski Boat

Thanks for the information MaritimeClassics. My boat has varnished wood decks with no vinyl. The original 283 was replaced with a 327. I will do some poking around to see where I can find the hull number.
More to come....

New Owner 1963 17' Chris-Craft Ski Boat

Hello, I'm a new member and first time poster to the CCABC. I recently acquired a 1963 17' Ski boat. The paperwork I was given says the hull ID number is CUA160059C. Can someone tell me where I might find the hull number on the boat? From what I understand, if the hull number starts with 16, wouldn'...
