    A four foot 9 inch Chris Craft, hummmm . . .

    Generally you get what you pay for, particularly when it comes to old motor yachts.

    Which Chris do you have? Trim level? Does it have a title? How about engines?

    I know you got it for free, but judging by your questions, you're in way over your head. Run Dr_match63, run as fast as you can, in the other direction. Maybe you can "give" it to someone else.
