1986 Correct Craft “Silver Nautique” 25th Anniversary model

This is #24 of 87 boats built. Features silver poly-flake center stripe with black hull & gray deck.
This boat, with only 170 hours, was left in dry dock for years. When the second owner bought it back from the third, he brought it to us for repair/restoration. Part way into the project he asked if we wanted to buy his boat and we did indeed buy this rather rare bit of history.
Although the boat had extremely low hours, weather had not been kind to the wood stringers and vinyl. Before long, another long term customer stopped by to see what we had for sale and decided on this project.
  • New floor & stringers
  • New carpet & interior.
  • New Teleflex “Sterling” gauges.

1979 Correct Craft Ski Nautique

Very interesting history on this boat.  It sat for years as part of an estate. With drain plug in, battery charger connected and cover on, only 117 hours on then engine, the owner had passed away. Over time the cover fell apart and the boat filled up with water, charger running and battery under water. Eventually the distributor melted into the engine, seat cushions started to float.  Eventually it was sold to a new owner who began buying parts to repair it.

Now the story comes full circle. Many years later this boat shows up for sale on Craigslist and was purchased by us to rebuild.  While  unpacking it, we found many new parts, still in boxes, with the original receipts, handwritten by us at OBW. We removed the rebuilt engine, rebuilt the stringers correctly, rebuilt the transmission a new floor and carpet.  All of the original upholstery had been stored inside for many years and was in extremely good condition.

 1967 Correct Craft, American Skier

Yes, an “American Skier” just like the boat brand of the same name, which came out in the 75 till 2002.
This boat is really just a stripped down Mustang model, plastic windshield vs. glass and built from early 60’s till late 70’s.
My family’s first inboard was a 1964 CC American Skier with the Buick V-6/ 130HP and drove on the left side(port). Also had the foot throttle and shifter on the dash, much like some of the Century boats. Interesting part of this little red Skier is it was bought new by a friend of my Dad’s and sold to current owners grandfather in early 70’s, who was also a skiing buddy of Dad’s. As I began to remove the deck hardware I suddenly realized the rope clearance bar on the rear deck had been made by Dad. As I thought about this, I remembered removing the windshield wing vents years back. When I removed them from my box of parts I knew right away that these too had been build by Dad. I remember the vent parts as our 67 Mustang was missing the vents and Dad made Plexiglas units with aluminum brackets that would never fall off the boat.  When this boat came in I was hesitant to even think about a rebuild, as the boat had extensive gel-coat cracks, hull blisters, rot, engine issues, and had faded to a nice pink color. Not counting the trailer was supported with land scape timbers and ratchet straps. Now this 67 has all new framing, floors, carpet, upholstery, rebuilt 289 Ford motor and a trailer that rolls.
