The restoration journal of Barrelback No. 71648, a 1940 Chris Craft Deluxe
Friday, February 12, 2010
Winter, and too cold to work outside in the garage on the boat hull. Spending free time scouting eBay for much needed parts. Was able to buy some rare original Soreng switches needed for a correct restoration. These have small knobs, knurled nut and a round body. California Classics offer a reproduction version, but with the later square switch body, and at $66 each.
Some cleaning and re-chroming the knobs, these will look new.
