By 2007, times had changed, the uncle passed away some years earlier
and left the boat to his nephew who still enjoyed the boat, but
didn't have the ability to keep the boat in the condition he felt
that it deserved. The boat, now named "Fine Romance" had seen 200
hours of use in 23 years and seemed to be in "usable" shape.
In November 2007 the boat was transported to Pittsburgh where it
joined 1947 Chris Craft 25' Express single engine hull numbers 206
and 217. Twin engine hull number 165 arrived from Michigan a week
Hull 234 is currently in the shop as a project in waiting; the
hardware and engines have been removed, cataloged and stored; the
hull turned over and the bottom planks removed. It is our intention to return hull 234 to its original red and white
If you are
interested in discussing the restoration of Hull No.
234, please give us a
