Thanks for all the photos guys, they're all awesome and very much appreciated.
mikgin, I like that watercolor treatment you did too.

Tim, I have an old video titled "Well Oiled Machines". It is shot at a model engineering show, and that Chris Craft is in it. Something I have not seen in the photos posted here, is the amazing inlaid wood rear deck on that C~C. Well, that whole boat is just amazing!

Had to spend all that pre-2008 Homeland Defense largess somehow!!

Seriously, I have heard rumors that they don't even take Marine 1 out anymore since SFPD cannot afford to pay for her fuel consumption. The Bush admin paid for localities and state govt.s buying lot of toys from their favorite defense contractors but didn't allocate any follow up usage funding. Still, good lookin' boat all-in-all even if they can only afford to trot her out once or twice a year!

Blow the second pic up to full page size.........you can see the diamonds he did also around the sides of the cockpit also. Someone spent a day or two with the lumber on this one! If you get a chance make sure to compliment the builder on that one for me! Great job on the pics also.

Agreed, full page shot will be nice. He even did the bed of the pickup, I think the pickup was wood.

I grabbed this clip back in 2005, and the VHS tape was already old back then. He has had this boat a long time!
