1954 20' Chris Craft Sportsman

We've done a couple of these 20' Sportsmans before. They are great all-around utility boats. For some reason you don't see a lot of them around. Not sure why that is. Anyway, this owner purchased his boat at an auction and planned to do the restoration himself. He's a cabinetmaker and is very capable, but the thought of rolling a fairly large boat over and replacing the bottom was a little more than he wanted to take on. So, we'll replace the bottom, sand up a plank and then he'll finish the boat himself, which is fine with us.


The owner asked us to paint up to and including the boot stripe, then also sand up one plank. We were happy to do both. Now he'll finish the restoration in his own shop.
