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 am looking for my first boat, and I have run across a late 1960s Commander 27 that seems to be in good shape. It has what seems to be the original Crusader 350. If I were to buy it, I'd probably want to repower it down the line, as I would prefer to cruise in the mid 20s (lots of ground to cover!).
Can the forum help me understand my options? The only older thread I could find was discussing changes on a twin screw....and my sense is that any change to a larger HP motor could potentially be a tight fit.
