Boat Reviews By Owners
1987 -- 19' 0" CHRIS CRAFT
Cockpit: I removed the back to back seats,restored the deck and added a capts. chair and a bunch of rodholders
Boat feels much bigger then a 19
Cabin: cabin is clean fits 2 6fter. no prob.
Construction: Deck had some softspots and I replaced it a job not for the faint hearted. The stringers were 100% and the boat is well made. The murrey bros. Chrises had a hit or miss reputation . this one is a hit.
Handling: Honestly this is my 4th boat and I was blown away at how this thing takes on 4 ftrs., its heavy with engine , dry 2600 lbs so Im heading out with a 3000 lb + 19 with 35" gunnels and a sealed transom. Shes a bit of a bow stuffer though , The hull is well designed, draws 14"
Engine Room: 1999 Volvo 3 L. that wasa replaced last season with a Cobra drive, Cobras a pain in the arse and Im going to replace it . 30 mph boat but cruises OK @ 18 knots or so
General Comments: I do, It was cheap and is restored to last another 15 yrs. min. I prefer outboards or straight inboards but I got this thing cheap
