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".
As I understand it, Chris Craft bought Thompson in the '60s.
My buddy and I looked at a 20' cuddy from the '80s, of pretty decent build quality, with a Mercruiser 470 (3.7L) powertrain. It was branded a Thompson and I think the logo was a helm wheel. I've seen some other Thompsons from the '80s too.
Was this the same company? I guess it would have been a Murray company by then but was it still related?
