The ACBS is an invaluable resource

Their collection covers every model produced by Chris-Craft from 1922 - 1980. They have copies of the hull card, sales literature, production photos, original price lists and any other records that may exist for your Chris-Craft hull upon request and a small research fee.

Don wrote the book on restoring antique and classic boats. If you don't already have it, we recommend getting it...

Tom King has put together a collection of manuals, diagrams, and information about antique & classic boats available on a CD.
