Richard and Cindy Booth are very fortunate to own two Chris Craft Customs both 20-feet in length. The 1946 was purchased from California (with help from Bill Baldwin) and originally named “Dumb Blonde”. Cindy has naturally blonde hair and said the old name had to go. The 1948, “Resurrection”, was bought locally at Lake Gaston North Carolina (LKG our home). The 1948 had sunk 3 times including at her dock during a hurricane. As a result, was named “Resurrection “. Richard and Cindy are members of the North Carolina Coastal & Piedmont and Sunnyland Chapters.
