1958 CHRIS CRAFT CAPRI $20,000.00

FOR SALE: 1958 CHRIS CRAFT CAPRI, 131 HP, FLAT-HEAD 6-CYLINDER ENGINE (no oil filter or water thermostat) withBENCHSEATS FORWARD &MID-SHIP, HATCH-COVERED MOTOR COMPARTMENT and COMPLETE WITH NECESSARY DASH GAUGES (OIL PRESSURE,RPM/HOUR METER, BATTERY/CHARGING VOLTAGE, ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE), THROTTLE CONTROL & FWD-NEUTRAL-REVERSE SHIFTING). Both up-draft carbs were removed, cleaned and fitted with after-market KITS, and reinstalled. Tachometer/hour meter refurbished, starter motor removed and over-hauled, generator removed and re-built with after-market analog voltage regulator (identical to original regulator) after-market CHOKE CABLE replaced (from dashboard to carbs). BILGE PUMPS: one is located forward and operates with a new float-switch; the other pump is to the rear of the engine compartment and also operates from a float-switch. The ENGINE COOLING SYSTEM's water pump was replaced with an after- market pump, while the original pump was repaired as a spare; it has not been tested on the engine. All engine drain plugs were inspected and replaced as water leaks were detected or threads went bad. The boat did not go in the water last season, nor has it been out of storage yet this season. THE BOAT HAS BEEN INSURED BY HAGERTY CLASSIC MARINE AGENCY, with HULL NUMBER CP19-778, and most recently was valued at $30,000.00 (primarily due to deck & hull restoration by NICK KERFOOT and KYLE KNOX in 2012); this work was performed privately and NOT on STANCRAFT MARINE'S time, in NICK's garage. During my ownership, the vessel was moored in a covered boat slip, and another float switch was installed that notified a cell-phone based monitoring system of an alarm for high water; I would then hopefully have time for an intervention. This alarm system was thru SENSORED LIFE, LLC, under their trade-name MARCELL (a subscription service). I am enclosing a couple of good photographs of the boat (attached). The biggest problem for me currently is the leaky hull.... it takes at least a week to keep refilling the inside of the hull approx.1-foot +in depth, in order to get the hull planking to swell-up enough to get it safely in the water. The side planking has always sealed up quite well. This includes the boat trailer as well: I Commissioned a new single axle assembly, since the old one was towed-in and wore the tires out in a hurry! I had a difficult time finding two new wheels and tires, but did get two and reinstalled the axle and tires. The trailer was almost completely re-wired and one (or both) rear brake/running lights were replaced. I am selling the boat now due to "getting older" and now mostly retired.....and since this is an expensive sport, I must be watching where my money goes, and cut back expenses accordingly. I am a motivated seller, but feel I must draw the line at $20,000 or higher. All spare parts and paper-work will be included. Will be happy to show it to anyone interested. Please contact me at:  (208) 443-6544 Larry Ayer
