You are looking at a rare 1947 16' Chris Craft Rocket. I'm selling it for Tom in the first picture. Tom bought this from the original owners when he was 18 years old and kept it until he was 32. He then sold it to a friend with the stipulation that if he ever wanted to sell he would give Tom first dibs.  22 years later Tom bought the boat back and kept it in storage until 2001. Starting the restoration in about 2002 and then using it till 2006. It's been in dry storage since. I have all the receipts for the restoration which total 23k. Some of the things done include engine rebuild 7k, chrome hardware 1600.00, paint 3k and on and on. The reason Tom is selling is his health and he has not used it in many years  I know this boat and you are getting a great boat at a great price.  The pictures are current. Any questions please call me at 920-450-4000.
