Hello everyone,
I have been told about your forum and I am glad to find that it is very active!
i am currently restoring a Chris Craft XK 22 in France and I would like to know it still exists some deck hardware manufacturer for old Chris Craft boats in the US? I haven't find anything in the Europe yet.
Many thanks for your helps.
Cheers!
Marc

Ebay is a good source too, I found stainless steel cleats that were identical to original pot metal for $10 each.

Regards,
Paul

Much of this is for wood boats but Joel helped me find good potmetal clamshells for my 1966 fiberglass sea skiff

Hello Marc!
I'm always happy to help fellow classic Chris-Craft owners and especially those lucky enough to have an XK-22. We truly enjoy ours and she's tucked away right now but not long til we rouse her for her 46th boating season! These fiberglassics are testament to the amazing quality design, materials and workmanship that went into them. For your reference, here's our XK-22, hull #77:








If you can, please share your "shopping list" along with the year and hull number plus photos, and I'll do my best to offer up some suggestions in addition to the ones Paul has graciously provided already.

Original, matching bow light, clamshell vents, throttle handle and railing gate/latch are challenging to come by but being resourceful, determined and patient is the name of the game with these classics.

Looking forward to learning more about your boat.

Skol !

Many thanks to everyone for all your helps, and I am very sorry for the late reply back...

I was very busy (and still now) working on the restauration of the 1973 XK-22, that I plan to finish end of next week. Unfortunately for me Craig, the XK-22 I am working on is not mine, as I see it now in the workshop I wish it would be mine!! :) . Your boat looks good and still in original conditions, it sounds like you maintain it very well!

Eventually, I got chromed the original parts but the ones that were not original have been replaced by the one I could find in deck hardware shops. I am sorry for the purist, but my customer is in hurry to get its boat in the water asap, so I had to make choices...and he doesn't like the original color but wants it in a dark blue with a central white stripe (like the XK-19 style).

I am glad to share on my work with passionate people as you are of any classic boat I am restoring, so you can follow up the restoration of Sanuk Time (tha's its name) on my Instagram: #rainero_boats. 
Just for info, I have 3 months delay between posting on Instagram and the reel pace of the project advancement, so don't be affraid when I say that the boat is supposed to be finished by next week and that the pictures are showing the very begining of the project on Instagram, I am someone serious ;) !

Many thanks again for your replies and help.

Cheers!!
Marc
