This beautiful Chris Craft Runabout was one of first quality pleasure power boats that was affordable. But the truth be known, these boats flourished during Prohibition with the demand for speed in water transportation. The remote areas along waterways on the Great lakes, upstate New-York and the Eastern shore were havens for gin mills. Both bootleggers and the Law required fast efficient transportation to travel to out-of-the way areas.
