What Is In The Shop Now?

Chris Craft Sportsman "Victoria"

Another classic Concours d'elegance boat with same name "Victoria". Just came in for engine re-work and adjustments, on her way back out the door back down to VA shortly for the winter.

1960 Penguin Sailboat "Victoria"

This little woody, came in as a shell of a boat. Stripped down to just its ribs, she needed a full rebuild including an entire new hull, interior build, floorboards, center keel and the list goes on and on. The boat was taken down to the bare minimum frame work and basically recreated from scratch. With special care to alignment and weight, as to make sure she was still sail fast on the water when back to racing.

1954 Sea King

Wow. Another barn find, this ole gal has been sitting in storage for a few years and need a total refit, down to the bones. She seems to have alot of rot in some areas - but nothing that cant be fixed.

10 Ft Mahogany Skiff

This little woody needed refinishing for the summer for its new 10 year old captain.

1938 Century Sea Maid 65 18 foot

This local custom woody was delivered to CWR from Northern Virginia, and is another family heirloom. She needs a complete build on her deck, recoating on her hull, and a new interior build as well. After 20+ years in storage - and previous work completed from the family, in a short while, she'll be planked up and back on the water by spring!




























Hannam reports that thing's are moving forward on the 1938 Century Sea Maid mahogany hull, now that all of the deck planking has been cut and she is ready to have new plugs drilled and installed. Next up, the tedious job of long boarding for her smooth finish. Than onto an install of the 12 volt system, including a new harness to the motor and all new wiring for the dash instruments and switches. Just completed all new mechanical running gear and alignment - so she is ready to turn up.
