Dumas 1940 Chris Craft Barrel Back run about (Partially started) by mtdoramike


Recommended Posts

Here is another wayward orphan that I picked up that some good intentional soul I'm sure bought on a whim with all the good intentions in the world of finishing it and just never did due to I'm sure like most for various reasons. I'm told this poor soul passed away before completing it. By looking at the discolored blue prints I would have to say that had to have been many years ago.

 

Now to the project model, a 1940 Chris Craft Barrel Back which has been on my to do list for ever. So I couldn't turn it down. The planking, which had been 75% complete was questionable at best, I had to completely rip off one side of the planking and start over, which I did. The rest of the build looked good.

Like I said in another thread, unfortunately I'm a sucker for unfinished models. The only thing that is keep peace in the household is that I promised my wife that both the Creole Queen and the Barrel Back would be sold by the time I finished them and actually I have deals on both from the same client, who purchased the 1954 Chris Craft Commander from me a while back.
