Copperhead – by Larry Maloomian
I had been searching E-Bay, Craigslist and the dealers for a '55 or '56 Chris Craft Capri when Pete Williams called and said – “you're looking for a Capri, there is a guy on Lake Beauclaire who has one for sale, let's go look”.
The Capri is a 19' boat; in '55 & '56, however, Chris Craft built two hundred (200) 21' footers. In 1955, Chrysler came out with the first "muscle" car the Chrysler 300 which had the legendary Hemi engine. It is reported that, in 1955, Chris Craft built six (6) 21' Capris with the Hemi engine.
For 3 years I had been searching for a relatively common boat and find a rare one the next lake over from Lake Dora where I live.
I decided that I would not name the boat unless I could find the original name, and, that name wasn't something stupid like Patty's Dream or Daddy's Toy.
