    Here is your opportunity to ride on a true classic Torch Lake Treasure. This boat was purchased by my grandfather in 1945 and has never left Torch Lake. According to my Mom this was the fastest boat on Torch until the 70's when modern fiberglass boats came out. She was rebuilt in the mid 90's and has been meticulously maintained since. She was the 23rd boat made by ChrisCraft after World War 2 ended she has a Scripts 6 Cylinder engine that was a surplus from the D-Day landing craft, and is one of 4 of these left in the world that has this combination. So if you are looking for a surprise for someone, a wedding treat, or have just wanted to be able to experience what boating used to be back in the day, here is your chance. We are offering  2 hour cruise around Torch Lake for up to 7 people to experience this one of a kind boat. There will be glassware and a cooler for drinks with cheese and crackers available. You are more than welcome to bring your own beverages of choice.  Black and White photo is my Grandfather driving with my Uncle and two friends on Torch Lake near the town of Alden in the late 40's  Standard 2 hour ride during the day - $1000  Evening/sunset 2 hour ride - $1200 Here is the "fine" print - there is nothing better than cruising on her when the water is smooth that being said she does not like it when its rough out, given the possibility for wind and rough water at times I would ask that you potentially flexible with the specific time that we go out. if for whatever reason the weather and ride does not work out I will refund 95% of the trip cost. Also there will be no anchoring at/going to the sandbar with this boat, I have 2 other boats available that can accommodate that style of trip.
