Here is a question for you guys. Do any of you guys happen to know if Cris Craft shipped their boats by rail? I thoought I had seen pics somewhere of some wood boats loaded ob flatcars but I can't remember. I thought that since I model in 1/8th scale that a wooden Cris Craft would look great loaded.
I don't know about Chris Craft specifically, but certainly cabin cruisers were often shipped that way. There is a photo of one such, on an SP flat car, in my book on SP flat cars.
