You may have seen this, but I just saw that someone has a fiberglass hull for the 63'Chris Craft Connie. I havent looked at it close yet,but it looks pretty good. Maybe they'll make one for the 50' Catalina next

Actually, considering the number of fiberglass hulls available to the modeler, it's surprising that there are so few out there for cabin cruisers---.

Warship modelers have it made, as do tug builders, but---.

I'd have to believe that this boat recently underwent an extensive rennovation throughout.

Did you say it's a boat from the 1960's, Aero?

I agree, Kap a well done restoration- clean boat!

Early 1960's... say, no later than '62 or '63 is my guess

Chuck was making a deck so he mold them the last time I was at his house. He has the cabin and roof in glass too. I think he resin casts some of the fittings.
