Tough Assignment - Chris-Craft or Not?

Post by Chris-Craft » Fri Feb 22, 2013 9:52 am

Greetings Chris-Craft Antique Boat Club!
You may have already had this question before but heck, it's almost summertime and this Kid Rock video just came across my path and someone asked; "Chris-Craft or not a Chris-Craft?" Well, I don't know but I sure know who to ask, so what do you all think?

(Warning: Girls in skimpy bikinis - If this offends, I apologize. I realize this is a family forum so please just focus on the antique boat.)

I think it's a Grand-Craft (new wood boat). The glass boat is an Advantage out of Lake Havasu, Az. Ever heard of them?

I think it is a Grand Craft, but not certain. While I am not the biggest Kid Rock fan to be sure, it is hard to be offended by images of people having fun around boats and water, isn't it? I think this video simply evokes and then illustrates the same emotional resonance and memories that motivate many people to buy classic cars, boats and other figements of a fondly remembered past. Chances are, while these memories may include languid days spent fishing with Grandpa and your family, they also include other activites! No offense taken by me, CC!

Upon some close freeze framing in the beginning it does look like the badge says Grand Craft.

Boats are to be made of wood, otherwise, God would have grown fiberglass trees.

Great sense of humor in here! Well, it does look like they are having fun and we think that promoting fun times and making good memories on a boat(be it made of wood, fiberglass or whatever it takes to get out on the water) even if it's not a Chris-Craft.
Thanks for your expertise.
