Chris Craft Sea Skiff

Postby cbdigh » Tue Sep 13, 2016 8:05 pm

Does anyone know if GlenL has a boat plan close to the Chris Craft Sea Skiff preferably the 28' version? Since I have learned of this boat it seems like a dream to own one. I could buy one for roughly 20k but would rather have either cold molded or plywood sides instead of a lapstrake hull (I think I am calling it correctly). If anyone could help it would be very much appreciated!

The Cuddy Sport or the Kona could be set up more like the CC Sea Skiff.

Which one of the two would you say is the closest and have the least modifications? Or are both hulls the same? I want to make it just like original with closed front deck and windshield like this one: http://www.classicboat.com/antique-boat ... ff-22f.htm

Which one of those two would you say is the closest to the sea Skiff? I want to keep as close to original as possible with the small forward berth and windshield. Are those two hulls pretty much the same and is one have an advantage over the other?

Just as an f.y.i.

The Chris Craft archives are available (for a small fee) at the Mariners Museum Library:
http://www.marinersmuseum.org/library/
Might be a valuable research tool.
Their collection of vessels is worth the visit if you're ever in that neck of the woods.
Best wishes with your build.

Good info if I'm up that way in the future as they are closed to the public for unknown amount of time .
