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".
Anytime a note like this gets sent around the world many times it is liable to end up in some corner of the earth where it could very well help someone. Awareness is safety, and we all need to pay very strict attention to the CO issues with running generators and even being tied up next to someone who is running one. CO mixes with the air, it is not heavier or lighter, you can't smell it, and it builds up in the blood until such time it gets to the point where it can cause blackouts or death. Not a happy subject, but I'm happy we're all talking about it now like we are instead of after the fact sorta thing about someone.
CO monitors are not expensive, and they are a great safety item, especially for people with generators. They're a valuable safety item for those without generators too, because they will very quickly detect a malfunction in the main engine exhaust system, like one of those rotted out iron collectors on the 1966 vintage 38 Commander.
