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 Lancer I've been working on, and showing the pictures of is/was not all original. She is a 1974 and was built with a 350 GM motor, but someone along the way put in a 360 CM. The fuel tank and helm chairs are not original. So this boat may never go back to original?
I do have a 1973 Lancer with all the original parts and I plan to restore her back to original, but I will still finish the bilge the same. I don't know that keeping a bilge rough, jagged and dangerous (original) is of any value.
