1941 CHRIS-CRAFT 19' CUSTOM - "DIDDIT" - First place winner at the Lake Tahoe Concours d'Elegance Classic Boat Show in the Marquis Class.  DIDDIT is the former (B)ELJIM which was discovered in a window less boathouse in New Hamshire in 2005 after having sat idle since 1966.  Thought to have less than 100 hours use to that point she was in amazing condition considering the passage of time.  Given a refreshing and new inner bottom, wiring and fuel tank she is as close to 'as factory delivered' correct as any Chris Craft Custom anywhere.

Judged with at least a dozen of it's 1939-42 siblings she finished with 94 points good enough to garner a first place and amazing given this was it's first judged show and most of the others had been judged at least once before and knew their shortcomings.  See the write up in our recent restorations tab for more details and pictures.
