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 like the boat, and like the model a lot but I'm a little behind the times here. So many Commanders and so little time! Does this mean you no longer have the 31 427-powered SE? I recall seeing some great photos of the 31, just wondered if you're a two-Commander family now?
I love the sporty nature, lines, speed, and easy one man handling capabilities of the 31, but a 42 sure puts you well into "yacht category" with all that interior room, sleeping quarters, and large aft deck.
