    Yep #27403! How cool.

    1963 Chris Craft Custom Ski

    Restored 1963 Chris-Craft Custom Ski in excellent condition. This boat is one of 642 ski edition inboards produced by Chris-Craft during the production run from 1960-1964. As far as I know, there are 18 Antique Boat America-documented Custom Skis registered, and this is the only one to have ever been displayed in the Antique Boat America national museum. This boat is powered by a Chevy 283 with a straight-pipe exhaust. She really barks, YouTube search "1963 Chris Craft Custom Ski, it's the first result! For speed reference, the video craft is a 700cc WaveRunner with one passenger. The boat is running at full throttle, pushing 50mph through the curve. Even though this boat is rare, she still sees use. What's the point in having such a beautiful boat if you can't show her off?

    My 1992 ski boat

    I don't recall about the drain plugs. I am pretty sure this is the same boat though. My grandfather bought the boat new and sold it around 1973. The last time I rode in it I was 11. I was able to keep track of the boat, because it stayed right on Keuka Lake for years. All of a sudden it was missing, so I figured it left the lake. At some point around 2007 I found Antique Boat America's website and the boat was for sale through that. If I had the $$$, I would have bought it! (even though we have no place to store it...) Like I said, I'm pretty sure this is the boat you have. I have a screen shot of Antique Boat America's ad for the boat. I will post it on this site and you can confirm the hull # and history.

    I think this used to be my grandfather's boat. Did you buy it in Clayton, NY? Do you still have it?
