Comments: The first 2 were built for G. Dale Murray (Chairman of company that owned Chris Craft at the time), and Dick Genth (president of Chris Craft).  Mr. Genth left the company before his was finished.  Mr. Murray's boat became part of the assets sold when Murray Chris Craft went into Chapter 11. The two persons on the back deck of the photo above are none other than designer (and club member) Dick Avery and his wife Maureen (in the fighting chair)!
