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.
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.

Looking forward to learning more about your boat.
