Does anyone have any information of photographs of the Chris Craft that used to be owned by Marjorie Merriweather Post and was kept at Mar a Lago prior to her death?

Marjorie, I'm just now seeing this. If you searched the historic archive on the club's website and didn't find what you need, I suggest you contact The Mariners' Museum directly. They have a curator of the Chris-Craft collection and they also have an online archive, I think. They are working reduced hours so be patient.
