1964 23′ Cruisers Inc. “True Blue”
Currently in the shop we have a very unique boat, a 1964 Cruisers Inc Navigator. We don’t see many of these beautiful boats. She is a dry boat and gives a very comfortable ride. She has a 95″ beam and 23′ length, and she’s powered by a 150 horsepower Mercruiser I/O, a very reliable engine. We have changed the color of the hull from a light blue to a dark blue, we’re also sharpening up the boot stripe.
We’ve stripped the transom and exterior mahogany on the deck, as well as the spray rails, and are refinishing it. We’ve also addressed some rot that had developed over the years.
After some much needed sprucing up, addressing rot, refinishing and a bit of engine work “True Blue” was ready to hit the big lake!
The following season “True Blue” came back into the shop. The owner was very pleased with his first season with the boat and decided to put some additional work into making her both prettier and more reliable. We proceeded to strip and refinish many of the interior pieces including the seat bases. We addressed a bit of rot in the keel, made some repairs to the port side where it had been bitten by a dock post and addressed many little things that had been bothering the customer.
“True Blue” made it back into the water looking and riding better than ever! She made an appearance at our annual Meredith boat show and was very well received. Our customer looks forward to taking her out again in 2016 after a little bit more work.
