Springs

by Paul Cundiff on 04/04/14

Here at the shop we have been recreating springs from the 1955s that were used in the seats of Chris Craft boats. Up until this point we were not able to find the springs at the right bend so we decided to make them. As far as we know, we are the only ones who can recreate them. The seats in the photos below are going to be shipped to Iceland to our good friend Victor.

Here at Woodies, we have decided to recreate the kapok bags of the 1950s and 60s. These bags fit into the cushions and are used a flotation device. If you are interested in purchasing or would like more information please call us.   Image and video hosting by TinyPic The left is the original.

Taylor in Belize. (1951 Chris Craft U-22)

by Paul Cundiff on 03/13/14

Taylor Cundiff has flown to Belize to help restore a 1952 Chris Craft U-22 for Roman Coppla. The boat is used by Turtle Inn for sunset cruises, and needed a new shaft and new water pump. While in the middle of the work, it was discovered that the throttle cable needed to be replaced along with bolts in the water pump due to corrosion.

 Belize may seem like a far way place to be working on a boat, but here at Woodies, we want to ensure costumer satisfaction. No place is too far to make someone happy.
