Inboard Nut

Back To Member Spotlight Index Page

I have always been an inboard nut. I grew up around them. When I graduated from college in 1990 and returned to Upstate NY, I got back into boating.

I mostly had Century models. A 1970 Resorter, 1972 Resorter, 1973 Coronado Hardtop, to name a few.

 

I always admired the Chris Craft "day boats" designed by Dick Avery but in all honesty, could never get availability and affordability to synch up.

 


We now own a custom built 1973 Catalina hull (#CCTJF0680273) that was modified to be an open runabout for the family that owned the Glad trash bag company.  It is in restoration and will be completed by spring of 09. Our plan is to rertofit it with 2 new Crusader EFI 350's. 

 

The 1967 27' Commander hardtop (#FSA 27 2064) was acquired about 8 weeks ago and is in excellent condition. Twin 185hp. We also bought a 27' Commander command bridge recently(#FSA 27 3031N). Twin 185hp. Very good condition as well.

 

Besides that, we have a 1985 Century Resorter, we are restoring a 1976 Century Arabian, also have a beautiful 1972  Penn Yan 20' tunnel drive and recently sold our 1986 Coronado Cardel.

We keep the Resorter close to home at a little marina in Caughdenoy NY. We will keep the 1967 27' Hardtop there as well next year. The 27' command bridge will be kept in Alexandria Bay, NY along with the custom Catalina Runabout when it is completed.
