Dumas Chris Craft finishing by don6398 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 year ago
I completed the Dumas 36" CHRISCraft several years ago. I made sure all of wood planking was completely smooth and minus all dents. I covered the model in 5 oz. fiberglass cloth and cover it with resin/Hardener. The planking immediately shine out. I then did a light sanding and gave it one more coat of resin/hardener. When dried I put some auto wax on it. You can purchase this material in marine stores or a good hardware store. My father and i did this a long time ago a real 22 foot ChrisCraft barrel . We did a small corner of the boat first, you can do the same on the model. We did fiberglass the whole boat so that we didn't have to soak the boat at beginning of the summer

That is a very smart looking scratch-built vessel you have built. Well done. 👍

Old Volts by boatvolt Apprentice   Posted: 3 years ago
Have a Dumas ChrisCraft Corvette built In the 60's. The speed control appears to be a servo with a cam punching micro switch contacts. There are two motors and one speed control. Is there a modern replacement for this or will I have to change everything? I am looking for a diagram. Thx

Chrome fittings by rclarke173 Seaman   Posted: 6 years ago
HI there Does anyone have any Info or experience of getting fittings chromed? I'm building a ChrisCraft barrelback and have scratch built the deck fittings but need to get them chromed. None of the paints on the market seem to get anywhere near a good enough gloss. The fittings are made from brass/ wood /and perspex and have all been primed and sealed. Any help gratefully received

'Mary D' by John Simons by John Simons Petty Officer   Posted: 11 years ago
The hull of this model was my own design In 2004 and was sailed for 2 years, and then a new upper decks and battery system were added during the winter of 2005. The hull performed well enough but my original cabin design was too crude to keep. The boat shown here depicts my effort to copy a 1958 ChrisCraft Cabin Cruiser at a scale of 1" = 1'. The hull Is 1/8" thick pine planks on frames with hand cut Walnut decking and 3/16" Walnut cabin sides. No epoxy or glass was used on the hull - just a good paint job. The big change was to replace a bulky & heavy 12VDC leac acid battery with 9 AA dry cells connected In series. Bathtub testing Indicated I could expect about 2 hours running time at full speed and that estimate was about right. A Dumas 12VDC motor and mechanical speed control were used with a JR XR 2 control. The reduction In battery weight made a very large speed and appearance difference. Availability of the AA cells was an economic plus.
