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".
Paul, on the "other" forum, you may have noted my new acquisition, a 1964 Chris-Craft XL175 Corsair. This boat is right in the same vintage as you Skiffish boat. The XL175 has a fairly ridiculous...but cool...scoop on the engine compartment hatch. It reminds me of a pro-street hood a high-school gearhead would have added to a 71 Camaro, as it stands about 6 inches tall. The scoop opening is rear facing, and it has the exact same kind of bezel and screening material as you scoops.
