    31' Steel Chris Craft Roamer with trailer
    We purchased this Roamer in early spring of 2002 it had been on
    drydock for 10-12 years, What caught my eye was it looked very
    similar to one my parents had when I was young, after looking at it
    I discovered it was indeed the very same boat. It even had some
    of the same decorations on board. So we purchased the boat!
    And the great memories continued. The 1st thing we did was completely
    sand the bottom and paint with 2 coats of Inturlux Interprotect watertight
    primer and 2 coats of Trilux 33 anifouling paint
    We also completly painted the sides of the hull with Interlux brightside.

    This boat runs exceptionally, we have spent almost every weekend in the summer aboard, taking it out everyday.
    At least once a year going to LaCross (90 miles). Below are some of the major items we did and their costs
    We also repainted the bottem with Trilux 33 anifouling paint yearly
