I have for sale a 1950's or early 60's B class hydroplane. The boat is in better than fair condition, but it does have a couple of leaks. The boat is all mahogany, its to bad its painted over. It should be removed and glassed, that would make it a nice boat. The boat is really worth saving, there is no rot in it. The boat is complete with wheel and cables, throttle, gas tank, no hose though. There is metal plates on transom, and all Keller hardware, also has shark fin on the bottom. Check out my other items!

John and Diane Sweetman email: [email removed] phone: 206-617-2217/2226 History: The L-36 was designed by Bill Lapworth in the 1950’s as a boat that could handle both bluewater racing/sailing and family cruising. This rare boat marks the end of the production wooden boat era. The last wooden hulls were built in the early 1960’s when the L-36 became the predecessor for the very successful Cal-40 series of racing/cruising sailboats. Seafeather is listed on the L-36 directory as hull number 27 (formerly Sealark) built in 1962 at Taylor Boatyard in Vancouver, BC, Canada although other records indicate that she was built at Chapman and Kalijean Boat Builders in Newport Beach, CA. Her records indicate that she won the Transpac race once and the Newport to Ensenada race twice.

NO RESERVE WHAT AN ADVENTURE!!! CLASSIC 1958 CHRIS CRAFT 17 ft on CUSTOM TRAILER Enter the "Trop Mignon" which means "Too Cute". Originally from Michigan. Clean title. Now in Vermont so with VT letters - fully registered through 2014 on a permanent custom trailer with recently adjusted axle, to make it a pleasure to trailer. She is a gorgeous 17 foot 1958 marine plywood Chris Craft boat that has had extensive restoration over the last several years. Thru hull exhaust. Appears to have been an early prototype because she is configured as a Sportsman with chrome everywhere. Owned by a meticulous collector. Stored indoors always on custom trailer, except for Summers. Great cruising this season. PHOTOS IN THE WATER ARE FROM THIS SEASON! Restored professionally - near mint top deck ($7,500 job) and sides ($5,000). Bottom has had 5200 added in spots that were needed. Interior has excellent leather patina including all functional chrome gauges. Hairline crack in very solid block does not impair performance. New carb, new points, new plugs. Water pump just gone thru and refurbished. Beautiful brass propeller. Beautiful split windshield, new gas tank (plastic) under two stern seats. Chris Craft bow flag. USA flag for stern with built in stern light. Professional transom letter job. Professional use of marine screws where needed. All gauges were removed, rechromed or polished as needed, and returned to dash during top deck restoration. Beautiful bow lights. Rumbles in the water like a good ol' Riva ought. Attracts attention everywhere. Trailer is custom and has a vintage look that matches the color and patina of the boat. Have towed over 1k miles without issue. Tires are fine, bearings on left side need to be repacked. Will try to get to that this week. Has an off the shelf canvas cover in blue with lattice. A thrill to drive and the only way to see the lake and mountains the way they were seen in the 1950s. Auto bilge fully functional. Extremely fuel efficient. Cruises at 2500-3000 rpms. Engine cover is made of oak with a leather top - may want to redo in mahogany. Will eventually want to add fiberglass strips to the seams on the bottom. The original fiberglass over marine wood was a new design that could be improved by reglassing the seams to over the ribs. Small crack port-side windshield just happened due to rain gathering and making cover too tight - easy fix. Horn is LOUD. Spot light in chrome is decorative only. Original inline 6 engine fully functional at 80lbs pressure. One area on side was just expertly repaired using hand planed mahogany painted over with 3M-5200. Needs a painted stripe. Overall (+++) Beautiful boat that an enthusiast would enjoy restoring to its show potential, or just having a cruising boat that looks like $1 Million! Attending to the moderate needs described above would bring it to a much higher value should you ever wish to sell her. No Spam please: feel free to call afternoons EST with any questions: 802-777-3317. Seller reserves the right to end auction early, or to sell outside of eBay. Selling AS IS and WHERE IS with no warranty implied or expressed. Freshwater use only. Has been a thrill to own. Grabs attention everywhere. Sits low to the water with the thru-hull exhaust that rumbles so splendidly. Carves through the water. Feels like you are a Kennedy. Only thing missing is a cigar. But she even has a built-in original cigar lighter.
