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".
That skiff is one of the sweetest boats I've seen in a long time. I am one of those guys you mentioned, who didn't even know CC made a glass skiff. I have to tell you, that boat looks so good without the windshield, I would hesitate to put one on it.
I am happy for you and Janet, after the odyssey you have been through, it is a chronicle of what to anticipate when you take on an old boat restoration project. Thankfully, you didn't get into the motor rebuild part (yet anyway).
I have been there, done that, but not necessarily to the same level of quality you have been able to achieve. I am one of those thousands who are watching. Congratulations, a job very well done! I am looking forward to seeing more photos of this one running on the river!
