GRANDSON RESCUES LOST CHRIS CRAFT

Remember the big Chris Craft pictured on page 12 of the Summer '09 issue sunk at her slip at the Maryland marina? I stated rather boldly in that boat's listing, "If there are any hearty souls out there willing to take on such a challenge, they certainly exist among the Bone Yard Boats crowd." Well, I am happy to report that, once again, you proved me right! Even better, a BYB subscriber was reunited with a lost family treasure. Read on...

In a recent email, subscriber Howard W reported the following: "I also want to tell you that I have rescued my grandfather's 1951 54' Chris Craft Motor Yacht which appeared in the summer issue. She was listed as a 1950 50' which was incorrect. Thanks to your publication... I will raise the Chris in about a month and have contacted a yard about restoration. Would make a good story for your paper, "grandson rescues long lost Chris Craft belonging to family in 1950's and 60's." I enclosed a picture from 1958 with my family aboard. Grandfather standing in his usual spot! Regards, Howard W" (Howard's grandfather owned this Chris Craft from new until 1968.)

 Info from the Summer 2009 Issue (No. 44)

1950 CHRIS CRAFT 50'. After being contacted about this 1950 Chris Craft 50' -- reportedly hull #1 and named SEA QUEEN -- her situation went from bad to worse. She is pictured above in her slip at Maurgale Marina in Glen Burnie, MD. In fact, if you check out Maurgale Marina on www.Marinas.com there are several great aerial photos of the marina in which this old beauty can be clearly seen, particularly if you 'zoom in.' As you can see from the photo below, she recently took on a bit too much water while at the dock. If there are any hearty souls out there willing to take on such a challenge, they certainly exist among the Bone Yard Boats crowd. If you'd like to take on this project, please give the marina a call at xxx-xxx-xxxx.
