Hi folks
I am anew member to this forum and I am hoping I am posting to the right place!
A few years ago I moved back to Michigan from Louisiana and got back into boating. I went to Craigslist and started looking at Chris Crafts(dad owned one) and thought that would be a good place to start. I saw a 1978 19'9" lancer similar to one we owned when I was a kid! I looked then moved on. The posting came up again a few weeks later and I looked closely.. it wasn't just similar- it WAS our boat(for some reason the MC number always stuck in my head..) I decided it had to come home! We sold it after my dad got very ill and needed the money.
Needeless to say the last 25-30 years haven't been kind to her. But she's restorable! I need to rebuild the 350(the original 305 cracked due to poor(no) winterization during our ownership- but my main issues are the vinyl and interior fittings... I would love to fit out a similar blue vinyl that came on these. Any suggestions on where to start looking?
I will get some pics on when I can!
Thanks!
