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".
Couple things. Those logos are not on the boat right now. They are nailed to floor joists in my work shop. CC logo was interior on the port side of the mahogany trim in front of the helm. Thompson logo was on port and starboard top planking board just below the deck and ahead of the stern. Sorry for the confusion on that...but thought a picture of the logos would be helpful.
There is a puzzle though. The engine code translating to a model b outdrive. That matches with the code description I have in my manual on the motor. Says 90 equates to Eaton I/O model B arranged for electric tachometer. problem is the outdrive we have is clearly a model c series 14. This is corroborated by the serial number on the outdrive [30858-CA-14R47 which translates to model C series 14 white (a) right hand and gear ratio 1.47. The shifter cabling is quite different from a model b and I don't see signs of any conversion. Would a conversion from a b to a c be problematic? I am wondering if someone might have switched it over before I purchased in 77?
