    Regal(ly) Roamin'

    A another bright star inthe Roamer firmament!
    Of course, now you are obligated to tell us her hull # (RDP-38-5**); name and a bit of history. See model-specific info here:
    http://www.geocities.com/alloyed2sea/Riviera_Regal_38.html We're keeping a list of "Known Survivors" - which I can send you via private email.
    In any case, will let all interested parties know about her. :p
    Cheers!

    38' Chris Craft - MSD advice

    I just want to let you know I bought this boat last week. I have a Glastron 249 and my wife and I were looking for something bigger. This boat is in the same marina as we are and we went for it.

    I will be looking for tips and anything you can think of to help me learn the ropes of a boat this big.

    The first thing is the MSD has to be replaced. Currently there is a porta-potty.

    Anyone have any information/recommendations for a replacement?

    John

    I found a number painted on the hull 691926.
    Is this the ID?

    That number appears to be a Coast Guard Documentation number that has long since expired. That record is for a 38' boat last documented with the name "E-Z Weigh" The Chris Craft hull ID is a different series of letters and numbers.

    Regally,..

    ..., yours!
    What a fantastic find.
    Changed over to 454s myself - not having the best of luck, but then again they were takeouts.
    The 38 Regal is truly a joy to own - low maintenance and super strong -- for once the sales brochure was correct!
    Appreciate the hull# very (very) much - can report that out of 12 Regal 38' hulls, we have accounted for at least six now - afloat and doing well:

    Let me know iffin' you want an updated copy of the "List of Known Survivors" - pretty interesting facts and stories.
    Who knows, maybe you can become a "Roamer Spotter" someday - we have eyes all over the world!! :cool:
    Cheers!
