We extend to you a cordial "WELCOME ABOARD !" Come on in, make yourself at home, we are a friendly group of enthusiasts, and we also appreciate the classic Chris Craft Roamer, Corsair, and Lancer boats too , as they are all on the same family tree and share much in common ! Just start by posting a note introducing yourself to the group, that's all it takes here (we don't ask for or retain any personal information here, because our intention is to just "have fun and share information".
To my surprise, the old seats didn't appear to use marine plywood. I have decided to use the old ones as a pattern, and today I ran off all the pieces and have some of the assembly done now. I'm screwing and gluing eveything, and it will be a lot more durable than before.
Not a real difficult carpentry project !
Looking at the old Commander seats I still have (I replaced mine with new helm seats of similar appearance) I see the exact same hardware I need for the Skiff rebuild. I guess there is some merit to keeping this junk around for a few years!
One thing about owning cars of similar years, and boats of similar years, they generally use a lot of the same parts and techniques.
