2015 Silver Antique Preserved

“Marjorie” received a 2015 Silver Antique Preserved Award at the Annual ACBS Boat Show.

“Marjorie” is a 1936 19 ft Chris Craft Special Raceboat.  She is owned by Mike and Sue Favilla who are members of the Bob Speltz Land-o-Lakes Chapter.

Silver Awards are presented to boats that are judged to be worthy of 87 through 91 points. At the Annual International Boat Show held at Gull Lake, Minnesota, 16 Silver Awards in total were presented to boats in various classes.

Prewar boats that were built between 1919 and 1942 are officially in the “Antique” classification.  A “Silver Award” is given when a boat is judged to be an 87 through 91 point boat.

ACBS defines “Preserved” boats as those containing at least 60% of their original deck and topsides material and are constructed using the same methods and materials as the original. Bottom replacement is expected in order for the boat to be serviceable but the method of replacement must duplicate the original.
