1950 18' Chris Craft Riviera


New WEST Bottom, hullsides, transom, rebuild of Hercules KL, wiring, fuel tank, gauges, and interior. Electrical was converted to 12V and electronic ignition was installed. This Riviera had been stored in a barn for more than twenty years. Although dry, a large family of raccoons was living in the boat, eating away nearly all the interior and rubber off electrical wires. A hole the size of a loaf of bread was also just above the waterline on the port side near the stern where a dock ran into the boat. She was rode hard and put away wet. The first season after our initial restoration she barely weathered a tornado at a lake where she landed on the pier and suffered much damage. A second repair was then completed in time for the following season.
