looks like a 55' connie.

That ain't no 55', unless the guy sitting under the boat is a midget.

Regardless of what size the boat in the photo is the article is good reading along with some other enlightening photos including one of the Mahogany lumber pile(S), at the importer's wharf.

Dave- I got a kick out of that article, especially the lines you quoted! It's hard to believe in this day and age when we make everything seem so esoteric and complicated, that they used to just slap them together in record time. I also liked the shot of the production floor with half a dozen or more boats in progress, all moving right along. And the shots of the lumber piled high, waiting for shipment makes me long for the old days when it was easy to find large quantities of "Chris-Craft Grade".
