"It is my understanding (need to be verified with Boat US) that Boat US filed suit agains Chris Craft due to call backs on this model. As I understand the issue, CC wasw taking short cuts by cutting the main fiberglass structural supports in order to install wires. This is obviously contrary to their present day and past performance, but I understand it did happen during a particular management regime and it was corrected as a result of the Boat US insurance claim action.

I would naturally be sure you were not looking at one of the boats built during that particular dark period of the otherwise brilliant CC history.

Someone please help me verify this, as I do NOT want to give out any incorrect info about CC or anyone else. As noted, I think you should contact an informed person who knows the history at Boat US.

Sincerely, regards,

"Here are a couple of references to the issue, mentioning two models, but I would check carefully to be sure your boat did not have cut stringers as noted in the last reference.
