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".
Many people would call that a user boat now. If you have some vintage electronic equipment like Ray Jeff, for instance, or some other period equipment, you might want to keep that just because it was from the era. Some of the old stuff is junk, but I kept a vintage 30-watt hailer on my 38 Commander and it works great and has a cool look. As you get into your project send us some additional photos and we'll help in any way we can. The 23 Offshore is a great model.
