Chris-Craft Seeks Your Vintage Photos for 2012 Brochure

Post by Chris-Craft » Fri Oct 07, 2011 10:37 am

Greetings Chris-Craft Antique Boat Club,
We are currently working on the 2012 Chris-Craft Brochure and would like to invite you be a part of it. We are going to try something new this year and have a page with a collection of vintage photos to celebrate our history. We have a vast library of vintage photos but we like the "quirky" ones the best. Those are the natural snapshots taken of people on their boats capturing a whimsical moment in time.
We would like to invite you to submit your fun vintage photos to be considered for inclusion in the new 2012 brochure.
If interested, please send to: [email protected] and be sure to include any information you may have about the photo. We may also post it on the Chris-Craft website.
Thank you!
Chris-Craft®, founded in 1874, headquartered in Sarasota, Florida, still produces classic and elegant sport boats today. The heritage-inspired 2013 Chris-Craft collection includes: the Bullet,the Carina, the Launch, Lancer, Corsair and the Catalina series, that range in length from 20 to 36 feet. For more information visit www.chriscraft.com

Jim;
I don’t think I have ever seen so many fender cleats on a Cadet. What would be the purpose of having fender cleats on the transom? Was it because they held down the factory shipping canvas? My bet is a “judge” would ding you today if you placed fender cleats on the transom today.

Don,

Do you think this photo is from up north? How hot would it be boating in a 3 piece suit? That makes me sweat just looking at it.

Maybe it was a factory order from a Chris-Craft dealer in Florida, so the owner could cruise Lake Dora with a string of 6-Volt Christmas Lights attached to the cleats... How could you possibly Ding someone for that?

Ron,

Quite a few Cadet's came that way. Russ Arrand restored one several years ago that came loaded with fender cleats, including on the aft deck. It won about every boat show it was entered in. Judges can't argue with the hull card.

The 20' Custom that is on the cover of the upcoming Brass Bell came from the factory with 10 small cleats. All for the boat cover.

Cleats

Post by steve bunda » Thu Dec 01, 2011 7:38 pm

Yes the cleats were factory installed to tie the canvas down, the cover had a slot sewn in with a small piece of line to wrap around the cleat and tie. Have seen boats with this option a few times, steve
