Lot #336- 1932 Hacker-Craft Fleetfoot 26' dual cockpit Runabout (VIN: MD 2305 BN)
Seller's description: A remarkable, fully documented restoration of a classic Hacker runabout by a master craftsman. New Motor, shaft, prop and related running gear. On a quality, custom double-axle trailer. Truly outstanding.
This 26-foot split cockpit runabout was built in 1932 by Chesapeake Shipbuilding Company in Oxford, Maryland to John Hacker's "Fleetfoot" design. Typical of Hacker's lines the boat has a sharp entry that breaks into a heavy flare forward, with low freeboard astern. Construction is traditional plank-on-batten with all substructure in white oak. Bottom and topside planks are 5/8" Norway White Cedar fastened every 6" with copper roves to 5/8"x 1-1/2" battens. The bottom also has Silicon-bronze screws between each rove. Bottom and topside seams were payed in 3M 5200 adhesive. The bottom is painted in Pettit hard bronze; topsides are dark blue Interlux poly with a white boot. Decking is 1/2" Philippine mahogany finished in varnish. All wood on bottom/topsides is original; approximately 5% of the deck wood was replaced. Seats are in dark blue marine-grade leather by Killeen. Floor is in russet jute-backed linoleum. Cockpit interiors are in varnish with dark blue accents. A large four-spoke steering wheel also houses a center throttle. Instruments consist of a large tachometer surrounded by oil pressure, temperature, and fuel gauges. All wiring is marine-grade tinned copper. New Cole-Hersee switches and lamps with all circuitry fused and identified. There is a new ignition-protected blower in the engine and fuel compartments. The engine is a GM 350/255 with 4 hours of bench time. A 1:1 Velvet drive is connected to a new A-22 stainless steel shaft. Current propeller is for in-water engine break-in; a speed-prop is provided once break-in is completed. An engine-flushing tap is accessed under the aft cockpit floor. Both engine oil and drive fluid are fresh water cooled through a new Sendure heat exchanger. All new hoses, clamps and fittings, with copper tube exhausts. All deck hardware is period correct, with a few reproduction pieces from California Classics. Included is a new pearl cotton duck waterline cover. Boat sits on a custom dual-axle trailer with new wiring, new tires, axles, and drum surge brakes. Paperwork includes good Maryland titles on boat and trailer, original building contracts, original Department of Commerce number assignment certificate, and full restoration records with photos. NOTE: Boat is titled as a 1932 Chesapeake SHP, and the trailer also has a title. Boat & trailer are located in central Florida VIDEO https://www.youtube.com/watchv=2Q76BtC30tE
