Missing Part for 30 foot Cavalier

Post by daveditch » Fri Mar 16, 2012 4:21 pm

I shipped my boat via transpot truck to my new home. Along the way the starboard panel bearing the Chris Craft label blew away. Can anyone suggest where I could source this part. If I cannot find the panel I will fabricate one but I will still need to source the the chrome Chris Craft name. I would appreciate it if anyone can point me to a source.

Thanks

If it is one of the standard size Chris * Craft chrome emblems, you can watch ebay, I see them from time to time. If not, there are several boat yards that may have them. Check with Hundley in Texas.

Call Jim Staib. He has them for sure. 815-344-9663. I've never heard of one of these blowing away. They tend to walk away fairly frequently, though.

I ended up fabricating two new panels. I purchased the emblem on ebay. The lower part of the cowling is usually fibreglass with horizontal lines imbedded in it. I used cherry with a mahogany stain topping everything off with West System epoxy and paint and varnish. The look better that the originals
