Just finished building the 350 Chevy engines for the 1958 Chris-Craft I'm restoring. The color is 1955 Chevy Tropical Turquoise.

Very nice! So, I have to ask: How many woodies do you own? We saw the Century and the yacht.

Right now, I just own the two woodies. I had a 1946 Hunter (Orillia, Ont.) but sold it a few years ago. Just bought a '58 Glasspar del Mar...cute little thing. Unfortunately, I know nothing about outboards.

Here's a photo of the 1958 Chris-Craft Commander I'm restoring. So far, all I've done is tear it apart, strip off everything (electric, plumbing, all tanks, all decking, etc.), paint the bilge and build up two engines.
