    That would officially make her a '66 (duh).
    One of 45 aluminIum 37 Rivieras ever made.
    427s are fabulous motors. The guys over at the Chris Craft Commander Forum are real experts on restoring those babies:

    Reckon the genset might be an Onan MCCK - another extremely worthwhile '60s era powerunit. (6.5 KW Onan MCCK Generator Start Up - YouTube)
    Take your time, and keep us posted - you have a real winner there.
    Cheers!

    PS- Marine air fits nicely under aft dinette seat - water hook ups and electric closeby as well.

    Is there any way to get a more deep color to it like varnish or more "wood" color? In other words, can one stain or varnish the product? I would love the floor like on Kimberly Anne, the 41ft Roamer.

    I wish,...

    ..., but itz all 'fake". :rolleyes:
    Recycled plastic plates and Bayliners to be sure.
    Me thinks "Kimberly Anne" has the original factory teak decks or entirely new real teak decks (!)
    With real wood you can do alot more because the grain will accept stain/oil/etc. With Tek Dek, itz "monolithic" - it is wat it iz.
    Now they do offer the "lite" version (silver grey) so it mite be worth asking if they can brew up a special batch for you (minus all the knewts and mices). :eek:
