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 !
Purchased from a man locally that didn't have time to Restore. I don't know a lot about the boat. Any information would be great. My hull numbers are ORAZ 19 0127 N. if anyone knows anything from these numbers it would be a big help in getting the accuracy of the project squared away. I believe it's a 1968. The top is in its second coat of primer, ready for a last coat then the gelcoat. The hull is almost ready for primer.
The engine is a 1969 Mercruiser 160hp inboard. The original engine was seized and not able to be turned over with a long pole for leverage. I removed the old transom wood and installed sheets of ply with the same shape. These were glassed in for a refit. Bilgekote was used over the glass on the inside. I will cut the hole and bolt the outdrive after the hull is painted. I removed the top and hardware for body work and have included a few photos. Any knowledge would be great. I'd like to learn as much as possible.
edit comment: Photos restored: I copied the "direct link" that appears in a photobucket album under the individual thumbnail view you see when you review your photos by just placing a cursor on the thumbnail. When the choices appear, copy the "direct link" and paste it here on The Forum. That works so much better than the automatic photobucket feature they place on this forum that I don't use and would like to get rid of! Good seeing you on the forum, great project you have, send me an email if I can help in any way, best, Paul
