Project Focus – Refinishing 1956 26′ Chris Craft Sedan with Flybridge “Our Reverie”

This boat received a complete restoration from 2005-2007 at our yard and the owner keeps the boat in excellent condition.  Our task this winter was to repaint the decks, varnish the brightwork, touch-up the hull and paint the waterline and bottom.


Cabinsides sanded and ready for varnish.


Transom varnished… nice and shiny!


John varnishing the cabinsides.


Varnish complete!


The light in the shop is perfect at the end of the day for photos.


Project complete!


About Mike

I pinch myself every day... I can't believe I'm back in Vermilion working at the boatyard! I grew up spending afternoons and summer days working at Moes Marine. I moved to Boston after college and met my wonderful wife, Maura, while living life in the big city and working at Boston BoatWorks. We traveled and volunteered abroad for 9 months in 2009 and then found our way back to our families in Ohio. We are now living in downtown Vermilion with our son, Owen, who visits the boatyard daily at coffee break!
