The Family Boats pt. 2

Cora B

The above is Cora B.  She is owned by my Uncle Mark and his wife Alice.  Mark is the son of my grandfather.  Cora B is named after Alice’s grandmother, the founder of Leelanau School in Michigan.  She is a 1955 22′ Chris Craft Sea Skiff (the same type of boat that Alan and Faye own from yesterday’s post).  Mark and Alice refurbished and customized Cora B.

Odyssea II

The above is my gandfather’s (Chris Smith) 1947 Chris Craft Rocket.  Her name is Odyssea II (he has a Chris Craft Sea Skiff named Odyssea).  The rocket was orginally 16′, but my grandfather made some changes, so she is 17′ now with the swim platform.  Grandpa redesigned and custom built the Odyssea II and the Odyssea.
