Hi OldNavy80,

Nice looking ride.  I also have a "newer" Chris Craft and may be in the wrong forum to generate much dialog.  I pilot a 1997 Chris Craft 32 Crowne.  It also is a modern express cruiser design with VP stern drives.  We have cruised from Port Clinton, OH to Kingston, ON  coming back to home port via the NY canal system.  A great vacation that took about three weeks with way too many locks.

If I can figure how to work with pictures on this forum,  I will post a current picture of our boat.  With the price of fuel, we all may have to become sailors to keep boating.

Norm . . . (erie_guy)

Hi OldNavy80,

Hope I can post a couple pictures of our boat, storage trailer with tow vehicle.  We have owned it for four season and regret how the price of fuel has affected our interest in continuing boating.  Maybe we will use it as a floating cottage and save a few bucks until the election is over and the markets settle down.

Here is a second picture of the boat last season getting ready for winter storage.  I tow it about 4 miles to our cottage were it winters over.  Not really a tow vehicle, but we have it balanced well on the trailer and the tongue load is about 500 pounds.

Nice boat Norm, I am looking at trailering vs docking.  How big is your boat?

Old Navy,

The boat is a 32' (32 Crowne) more recently called the Chris Craft 328.  It has a 11'-11" beam and weighs about 12,000 pounds.  It is stored and moved on a three-axle aluminum trailer from E-Z Loader.  The trailer has four sets of bunks that swivel to match the hull profile.  We load and unload the boat from the trailer using an overhead sling (boat lift).

I feel the boat is too heavy to load and unload on a ramp - unless you pull it with a Sherman Tank.  It costs us about $65 to launch and $150 to recover at year end (with pressure wash, ect).  Annual dockage in Port Clinton is about $900 with both power and water provided.   To keep costs in line, I do all winterization tasks myself and actually paint (touchup) the bottom while on the trailer.  But I do wish I could make my own fuel !!

The boat was purchased in Texas and delivered on a similar trailer that was towed by a Dodge Pickup (diesel engine).  The delivery driver indicated that the boat was easily towed at "highway" speeds.  Many State highway permits were required - as the boat is over allowable width.

Pretty much the same dimensions of mine, 32' is a good size, I have been drooling over the 412 but with gas and all I am waiting.  Enjoy your season.
