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".
I've been working out of town for the past week and a half so nothing has been happening on the boat.
I think I am going to take the motor to an engine builder to have a pro diagnose the symptoms and remedy the situation. At this time I can also have the engine dyno'd to find out for sure what I have for horsepower so I can buy the right prop the first time without guess work.
I can only bang my head against the wall so many times and I have other fish to fry on this project.
Once the issue is identified I will indeed post an update.
