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".
The 1967 Cover photo goes to the very sporty 17-1/2' Sport-V Tansdrive. A sophisticated performance boat with respectable power and speed rating, and very nice sharp lines. This boat developed the hull construction techniques and further developed the transdrive setup that Thompson Boat Co of New York had been using in their wood boats, and it was the predecessor of the 19' 1969 Commander Super Sport (which used a V-drive, but also came in the transdrive configuration too).
