Black Magic - 1984 Chris-Craft Stinger 390 X - Click on images to zoom
The boat was ordered new in 1984 by the Producer of "Second City" in Toronto. This is the guy who gave us John Candy, Dan Akaroid, Gilda Radner, Martin Short and the list is endless. Almost the entire cast of SNL's first season was from Second City in Canada as Lorne Michaels, as young as he was back in 1975, was still known here in Canada as comedy gold producer. The story goes that John Candy was on the boat many times out in Toronto Harbour and Port Credit Yacht Club tearing around the lake and was recognized so everyone associated him with the boat. The buyer ordered the boat from Chris Craft in Black with gold as he also had a car painted to match the boat.
