Chris-Craft Continental: 20 ft, 1955 This 1955 mahogany Chris-Craft was located in a neighbour’s dry (dirt floor) boat house in 2012. It had been in storage for twenty years! The boat was wet sanded, re-varnished and all the chrome was re-polished. The Continental has always been boat house stored and offers strong wood in great shape. The boat runs really well…a fast 28 mph+, powered by a 6 cylinder 120 hp Hercules with three carbs. The engine has been converted to a twelve volt system, so it starts easily. An automatic bilge pump has also been installed in the boat. Last year a fresh coat of copper bottom paint was applied to the hull. The Chris-Craft seats four or five comfortably and handles the ‘big water’ of Georgian Bay. The sale includes four life jackets and a safety kit.

The McCullough brothers of Honey Harbour Ontario, already boasting a number of restorations to their credit, have been working over two years to re-create a hydroplane created by renowned designer Bruce Crandall in the 1930s. The original pattern has been lengthened to 19 feet. Originally powered by a four cylinder flathead engine, the enhanced version of the design will be propelled by a 350 Magnum engine, pushing this stepped hull racer far past its forbearer’s speed record. Mike and Bill have reached a stage in the construction where they can begin applying the cedar rivet-fastened skin to the frame.

The engine, a 6 cylinder Gray marine of approximately 105 HP, rebuilt by PAL engines in 1987, comes with manuals.”
