1947 Chris-Craft Sea Trials A Success!

It was a bright, shiny morning on Hessel Bay when GLBBS students were able to realize the culmination of their hard work over the past year.  The students, along with Instructor Rob Freel, put the seventeen foot 1947 Chris-Craft Deluxe through its paces.

This was some of the student’s first time riding in a wooden runabout.  Each of the students got a shot behind the wheel and a great time was had by all.

This restoration project is currently being raffled off by the school.  For more information on how you can win the boat and trailer, please click here.
