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 !
That is one SWEET looking 27. I asked Janet to take a look and she agrees. As a matter of fact, I think I could easily talk her into buying one of these. She likes the fact that it has a permanent sun screen with that hardtop, and I am nuts about the fact that you can get this one with twin V8 power. As you know, if a pair of 283 V8s will fit in this boat, any other small block will too, including everything up to the 383 strokers or the siamese cylinder 400. The character of this boat could be very robust.
I am reasonably sure you could have talked the dealership into ordering one of these with a pair of 327F, although the power offerings were a single 327F with 210 hp or a pair of 283Fs at 185 hp each. A pair of 300-hp small blocks would make this thing really fly.
You got a good one, congratulations to you. Nice choice!
