A 1932 Chris Craft 21 ft 305 Runabout leads this week’s Tuesday Tour of Vintage Boats. Tuffy is at home in Skaneateles, New York, where this photo was taken in July of 2017. Tuffy is owned by Ed and Brenda Evans. Ed tells us that “Tuffy is a “he” ( named for my father in law….his nickname) who loved boating /fishing on Cayuga Lake but died before he could be out on this one, so we named it for him. Someday I will rename for his daughter/my wife….Brenda Ann :-).”
