Chris Craft 145

Full Description

Boat is located in Santa Cruz,CA..Please contact the owner @ 805-969-nine one nine five...Two Tahoe awards- First Place in pre-war Barrel Backs and the Perpetual Trophy for Best Original Lake Tahoe Boat went to Time Out. That should say it all. These are tough trophies to get and Time Out is in a condition of almost exactly as it was when it left the factory in 1941. Since the show she has been in dry storage and is now for sale.

One of most highly sought-after models of Chris-Craft is the pre-war 19-foot Custom Runabout Barrelback. Only 22 Model 108s were produced for 1941. This pre-war Model 108 speedboat left the Chris-Craft plant in Algonac, Michigan on 29th of May 1941, headed for Reno, Nevada for final delivery to Lake Tahoe. The Model 108 was the top of the line version, and boasted a 145hp MB engine, the most powerful engine available in this model and a useful feature at high altitude lakes like Tahoe.

Time Out is a practically all factory original boat with all her original wood, numbers matching engine and original fittings, all in excellent condition. She was in dry storage near Tahoe for decades and on coming out in 2012, her mechanicals were completely gone through; rejuvenating, adjusting and restoring any nonfunctional items. Today she sits on a new two axel trailer which goes with her.

Time Out runs beautifully and planes at 2800 RPM, even at an elevation above 6000 feet, which leaves a few hundred more revs for that little extra go you always seem to need. Her hull has full structural integrity with a beautifully smooth polymer bottom installed under the supervision of the legendary Dick Clark while he was the technical director of Sierra Boat Works, Lake Tahoe.

At the 2014 Lake Tahoe Concours d'Elegance the featured marque class was Chris-Craft Barrelbacks, and with boats from all over the country, judging between Barrelbacks was fierce. Time Out was judged First Place, and she was also awarded the Best Original Lake Tahoe Boat for 2014.

According to several of the Lake Tahoe judges who specialize in Barrelback boats, Time Out is one of the top 1% to 2% of existing Barrelbacks in terms of original materials and workmanship.

For 2014 she got fresh varnish, re-chromed fittings, and renewal of the upholstery using period correct leather, materials and techniques. Time Out is as fast and beautiful looking as when she left the Chris-Craft factory back in 1941.
