Boats built between 1976 and 1993 are in the Late Classic age classification. This striking 1983 Correct Craft Ski Nautique is a prime example of a Late Classic Boat. This 20 ft boat is powered by a 1983 Ford 351. She is owned by Bob and Barb Meimbresse who are members of the Philadelphia Chapter.
Antique Boats were built between 1919 and 1942. This 1935 Beaton Bros. Sneak Box is classified as an Antique. William and Harriette O’Brien own this boat named Lenape Scout.
Liquid Asset is a 1951 Chris Craft Holiday. This 19 ft beauty is owned by Ed and Mary Andrews. When the picture was submitted to the ACBS membership files, Ed said, “I bought Liquid Asset in 1994 from a good friend in the power squadron. She has recently undergone a complete restoration. I just recently found one of her previous owners in the CCABC archives. Apparently, she spent some of her life in Ohio. We are still researching this portion of her past. Right now we know her delivery destination and her past to approximately 1980.”
