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".
Boats that are set aside seem to sometimes just get lost in a time warp and the years just flip by one at a time very quickly. Then all of a sudden, someone comes around and pulls the trigger on a SAVE or maybe the final trip to destruction. This boat is lucky, because it has by chance encountgered a classic soul who appreciates a classic soul in a boat. If it could be jumping for joy on its own it would be doing so now, but it will wait patiently until it can jump for joy with Chris at the helm and six cylinders of Buick torque pushing.
Hey Chris LOOK at that deep-V too, sheesh that boat has offshore racer in its blood. How about the motor, is it a keeper, a repair, a runner or a replacement awaiting? The boat looks all there, and a good scrub job may produce remarkable results. I trust seats are gone. Where is the fuel tank in one of these?
Also do you know any history of the boat. Where has it been sleeping all these years, why was it put up in the first place, etc. Also, congrats for figuring out the photo quiz, whatever it was you beat it.
