Broke down the couch, removed all the flooring and furniture. Got it all off the boat and opened the engine hatches for the first time since we had the boat. Notice the Chris Craft hand written part numbers on the hatches. I think thats cool. Getting closer to pulling the engines and genset. #northshoremarina
