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 !
The Essential Guide weights and the advertised weights are way off. My boat (45TF) lists at 38,700 lbs., but actually weighed just over 50,000 lbs. when I got it, with spare shafts, props, and a lot of other junk aboard. After removing all the spares and a lot of equipment it last weighed just under 45,000 lbs. Weights come from the Travel Lift gauges - weight from the forward hoist + weight from the aft hoist = total. The next time you're hauled, ask the operator.
