NOT for the faint hearted or beginner. Engine looks to be a turbine, boiler is "Yarrow" type and burner looks to be pressurised.

A potential bomb if you don't know what you're doing, - - - - should appeal to quite a few based on the LHS of the pond.

Regards Ian.

Chris craft wood boat helm

A Must for the serious CC owner ...

CHRIS CRAFT WOOD BOAT HELM BAR GAUGES SHIP WHEEL SWITCHES CHROME CABINET 1950's

"This is a rebuilt Helm control station from a 1950's Chris Craft cabin cruiser. All the original equipment is still there and the gauges look great too. The horn will beep when you press that horn button. The gauges lite up when you pull the instrument switch out which looks really cool when the lites are dimmed in the room. "

Price: US $4,595.00

Thanks for the tip

I thought it to be too small for the booze here.Thinking,the "Queen Mary" controls to be a better size.
As I was still looking at the pics. you posted,the little woman had it on E-BAY.
The next thing I hear is "let's make an offer"
You may notice,an offer has been submitted.

Offer " Declined"
Will only ship free at the "buy it now" price or over.
Guess I have to wait for the "Queen Mary " bridge to be renovated.
