Bonjour .                   

10 months in process, Complete restoration . Chris craft 23' 1947 Express Cruiser .

I did start talking about this project 4 months ago , she is a 23' Chris Craft build-ed in 1947 .

At my knowledge ( Chris Craft Museum research ) there is only one left except the one in my hand .

I was very surprised and hope this serie of articles will help to learn more about her .

I did restore plenty of vintage Chris Craft , but I  love the preservation quality of this one , for a 1947 , she is amazing .

As the owner does not want to keep the current name ( not original anyway ) i will have to temporary name her , for convenience communication XC47 ....

Donc , ( french expression for OK ) XC47was apparently  for over 10 years in a dry storage and major damages we find were cracks on wood plank due to over dry . My first move was to move her to a friend Shipyard ( Cerritos yacht anchorage ),  open damaged area and let her sit for some time .

The weather condition this month in long Beach are totally perfect ... even too much this week .

As today , when i am revueing my week end article ... Really Too Much rain !

By tradition , i do prefer pictures rather than long descriptions and my written english is far from perfect .

In this first page , we did remove all hardware's , send them for chroming ,open cracks , sand : hull ,transom , and heat gun "varnish and caulking" remove .
