1958 Chris Craft Donation

1958chriscraftStudents attending our summer 2013 Repair and Restoration class are scheduled to restore a 1958 runabout that was donated to the School this week. The owner home-built the boat from a Chris Craft kit while attending High School in 1958, and enjoyed running it around the Northwest waterways for over fifty years. It came with all original documentation and assembly instructions as well as its 1970’s-vintage Mercury 500 50hp outboard. The students will restore the boat and put her into service as the School’s water-taxi, ferrying students & staff out to our boats moored in Port Hadlock bay. Many thanks to Jake T. for the classic restoration project.
