Engine Box for 1964 21' Sea Skiff Sportsman

Post by Harwooddj » Thu Mar 04, 2021 12:46 pm

I am new to Chris-Craft Restoration. I have just purchased a 1964 21' Sea Skiff Sportsman. I have most of the wooden parts to replace or repair. That said, I do not have the engine box. What do folks recommend as to how to find the necessary information to recreate the engine box? Looking to benefit from the experience of others. Pictures of an original engine box would be great as well as dimensions.

Someone on this site probably has the same boat and could take pictures and dimensions for you. You could peruse the hull registry if you are a paying member and look for the same boat or years around that era for a similar Sea Skiff, then contact those people for help.

There's also a 24 foot 1965 Sea Skiff on Ebay now with some pictures that might help. Don't know what engine you have but this one covers a 283 V8.

Thank you very much. I will look that over. My boat has the same motor. This is an excellent start. 👍
