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".
The restored 23 will be getting a lot of affirmative nods up there. Spring Lake is fun but you also have access to the big lake, and can run down to several really nice dockage locations. Would be fun to do that in the big boat. I wouldn't stop in Michigan City, but I would in South Haven, Saugatuck, and Holland, hopping up the coastline from one nice location to another. Great place to have a boat, the 23 Lancer should do very well there.
