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".
I'm almost at a loss for words over this posting. Very touching, awesome human story, amazing man, great family history. What a wonderful experience you and your Dad, were able to share on this planet, buying that Roamer, seeing it as a kid, getting to grow up on it with your Dad showing you the ropes and all. NOW I see where the passion and obsessive attention to detail is coming from, it's very clear now. This is no mere boat restoration project, not by a long shot. Thank you for sharing this with us.
