The chaparral that I bought to part out is gone already, someone wanted the whole boat for a price I couldn't refuse. Waiting to hear back right now on another Scorpion 260 with twins in it. This one looks to be in rough shape but the price is right for what's there.

Yea, same as the one we have. But the owner stopped messaging me and removed the ad so it probably wont be happening.

Gotcha, was potentially looking for a spare
454 mag and possiably a drive. Gotta love the classics with the all the teak! I’ve always loved to looks of the older performance boats with the teak wrapped windshield frame like yours.

Yea I'm a big fan of the teak too. I used tung oil on the swin platform of our liberator and that worked really well, going to try and do the same to the chris craft this week. I got fluid on both drives changed this weekend and new fuel filters on both motors. I'm going to take it out on one for lake run to make sure everything is good and then most likely put it up for sale.

I got the liberator outdrive apart right now replacing the gimbal bearing and a driveshaft seal. If the chris craft hasn't sold by the time I get the liberator back up and going it will probably go for sale too and I'll keep whichever sells first.

Pulled this home tonight. Same motor as the chris craft and also needs a top end rebuild. What I wanted to do when I first saw it for sale was swap the aluminum trailer over to the chris craft but unfortunately it's a 6000 lb capacity and the one under the chris craft is 7000 lb. Plan now is to just rebuild the top end and put it up for sale.

The Chris Craft is for sale. It's a fun boat but unfortunately financially it doesnt make sense for us to keep it over the liberator. We have had it out on the water a lot already and it is running great, we have made it to saugutuk from holland at least 4 times already and a few more times just a cruise around the pier head and lake mac. Top speed I have seen is about 55 mph.

Asking $9500 but for a great lakes member I'll take less, or if a great lakes member finds me a buyer.
