I was docked for a couple of years next to a guy with a 1965 33 foot ChrisCraft. This boat was unbelievable: it had a center cockpit and an aft cabin that was more like a doghouse...still, a nice enough boat if heavy as hell. Good workmanship, if obviously old-fashioned.
To give you an idea, my '70s cruiser racer was seven inches longer and 10,000 lbs. lighter! I put out a lot of fenders when he was learning to dock.

Looking for Chris Craft Sailboat Owners
I know, nobody realizes that Chris Craft built sailboats. I have had a 1967 Chris Craft Apache 37 for 20 years and have enjoyed it thoroughly. A group of us are trying to find owners and re-activate the owner's group. If you know of anyone who is interested in these great boats, you can point to our new web site at: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/chriscraftsail/. By the way, my old boat took 2nd place in this year's 70 mile overnight Governor's Cup out of Annapolis...beaing two naval academy boats that came in 3d and 4th.
