1953 Chris-Craft 22’ Express Cruiser

Post by SJBoats » Tue May 10, 2022 10:41 am

Hello, my father and I have a 22’ Chris Craft kit boat that I believe is a 1953 express cruiser. I still have the registered number on the side which was last updated in 1990. We have gotten it down to the bones, and I am just at a loss of how to seal the bottom correctly, correct varnishes, application, etc. any help would be great!

You came to the right place, there are a lot of guys that can help you get it sorted out on the Buzz. We would need a little more help with what you need with the bottom stuff and pictures would help for us to see the condition. The varnishing and stuff you may find some help on my channel so look and then if you need more information just let me know and maybe I can point you in the right direction or make a video to help. ... t__8wa7U7Q
