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".
Without engine documents I could certify the boat as a one-off but, since it counts as a new certification, respecting CE rules.
In Italy it works like this:
Unregistered boats (up to 10 meters) do not have any document but must have a "declaration of engine horsepower", this doc accompanies the engine wherever you install it.
Without it is like the the boat simply doesn't exist, I know it's a stupid law.
I can change the engine without any problem with a +15% tolerance in horsepower.
I have my OMC declaration of horsepower and the document that says the boat has been cancelled from the registry in 1994 (until the mid-eighties any boat with 40HP or more had to be registered with a plate).
During the late eighties a new law appeared and boats up to 7.5m could be considered "small vessels" and no plate was needed. Many people decided to cancel their boats from the registry for tax reason an thus those boats became "natante" (literally "floating") not subject to property tax, selling fees and so on...
Later on 7.5m became 10m and many other boats were cancelled.
So my boat is a "natante" and it needs engine documents.
Since Chris Craft and Chris Craft Italy went out of business I cannot ask for a copy (that would be valid to Italian law) of the "dichiarazione di potenza".
I already asked Chris Craft but they do not have any old document or certification...
