Trading Dock

Still attempting to place ad in Trading dock, "Invalid RSA Key" comes up as error message. Why is Trading Dock around and if it does not work we should be allowed to place ads on Boat Buzz :?:

Re: 1937 Chris Craft 19' Custom Runabout Bottom Woes

It looks like the caulking may be the problem. If you want a temporary fix, you may wish to remove the caulking, I use a tile grout remover, rout out larger gap, and recaulk. For a more permanent fix....5200 bottom. (nice boat)

Re: Searching for Long Lost Chris Craft

Great story. Start a blog so we can follow along. Would make a great story for Brass Bell. That is one of the more favorable boats by CC. Keep CCABC members aware and lots of advice will flow in to assist you.

Re: Facebook CC Website

I read CCABC on facebook for my morning smile. The postings for the most part are frivolous, misspelled, commercial and attracts many who think every boat ever made is a Chris Craft or owned by some personality.
I believe this facebook site does not enhance the membership of CCABC

Re: Chris-Craft Antique Boat Club Hats!

I can't access Jim's link to the 1980 Brass Bell. But Chris Smith made DUCK (not geese) decoys when he first started and custom boats for duck hunters. Every once in a while Mr Smith's decoys come up for sale....if you can buy one, get it...best investment you can make.
