Overall the vessel is in excellent condition. Some of the bottom paint is peeling toward the bow. One area near the bow has a plank that is slightly uneven due to some deterioration. The remainder of the hull is smooth and fare and the varnish shines. All emblems and logos are in great shape. The Gold leaf on the stern is bright and is used on the registration numbers as well. The windshield is clear and free of any scratches. The weather stripping shows some dirt but no discoloring. The stainless trim has a screw that has backed or popped out on the stem. There is a small chip on the plastic center steering wheel cap. The white waterline stripe has a small area of peeling at the stern. The seat cushions are stored indoors and show no signs of use or wear. The engine compartment is tidy and the engine appears to be in proper order. The shaft and rudder appear to be in order as well. The engine is the original to the boat and was rebuilt by George Shen a known Chris Craft engine expert. It is a Chris Craft Hercules K model with 131HP
The gauges were rebuilt by Pat Powell. The restoration of the vessel was completed by the owner. The owner's favorite part of the boat when asked is the Sound! The boat has never been is saltwater. It has been stored and covered but seldom used since around 2006 due to the owner having some mobility difficulty.
