Rock The Boat 2010
RTB has made great headway during 2010 including the acquisition of another vintage Chris-Craft and one waiting in the wings.
A Quick Recap of RTB 2010
Progress was made in all areas, but the major development was the 1954 36' Chris-Craft Commander that arrived from San Diego. Arizona Boating & Watersports/Western Outdoor Times brought another vintage Chris-Craft to Arizona for restoration as part of the Rock The Boat (501C3) project to benefit Superstition Search & Rescue.
CFB Marine Group along with John Campbell of The International Yellowtail Derby have put together a San Diego team to help save this 1954 36íChris-Craft Commander. The boat has been donated by Marina Cortez. It was hauled out at Driscollís on Shelter Island where it recieved new bottom paint. It will be transported to its new home at Bartlett Lake by Ed Hale of Haleís Marine Service.
Lake Tahoe in Nevada has long been a home to these beautiful floating pieces of history. Arizona Boating & Watersports/Western Outdoor Times and the Rock The Boat Project hope to establish this tradition at Bartlett Lake in Arizona.
This will make the fourth vintage Chris-Craft to join the Rock The Boat (501C3) fleet. As these boats are completed, they will be auctioned with proceeds going to Superstition Search & Rescue.
Rock The Boat sponsors have been great and the list keeps growing.
