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".
Excellent observation Mr. Judge. Unless some things change for the better, alot of their kids may simply wind up with estate items that they may or may not give a hoot about. That can translate into fetching less than good prices which in turn can depress an entire market that gets on a downward spiral. On the other hand if there were a thriving audience of new enthusiasts, it would be a different matter. Of course we're not in it for the money but the sport and hobby so I'm sure we'd all like to see these boats be more than a bookmark in American manufacturing but rather transcend that to a level reserved for truly special representations of their era deserving of preservation.
