Re: 1939 19ft CC barrel

Hi all

I'm alive and well lurking in the background. Everyone's on the right track.

I made a DVD of how the original interiors were made. Wonder if we could get the club to host it so that all could watch.

Best regards and Happy New Year!

Re: Barrelback dashboard stain

I have all the proof you want. the answer is all walnut stain. Now that I'm no longer on the board I am free to express. this subject has been covered many times. It has been seen many times on original dash panels that a walnut overstain was applied to the dash rather haphazardly to boot. I could s...

Barrel Back DOT COM is back up!

All;

After many years of being down www.barrelback.com is now back up thanks to Matt Byrne.

It can be a great resource for anyone interested in Barrel Backs. Some of the info is out dated and I will work to bring it up to today's knowledge base.

Re: managing drafts

Keith;

I think we have to take a look inside the Admin panel to see what the setting are. I'm on other forums and they have auto-save features. I will admit it takes some time just to figure out where things actually go.

Matt Byrne, you have any ideas on this?

Thanks

Ask for Gary and use my name. They know me and the old boats well. Remind him of the double cover with the inner flannel type material. I'm sure it is available if they give you the proper name.

Re: Boat covers

Thanks. Here is the easy way. Orange button at the top takes you to main page www.chris-craft.org and log in. Then go to Membership Services at the top. A drop down will show Past Brass Bell's. Click on that. Then go to Winter 2009, page 16

Enjoy

I'm hoping you have a block casting that ends in 870. Then look on the other side for the actual casting date.
Example A- 10-4 = Jan 10th 1964 etc
