    We are thinking of selling our Roamer.:(

    This boat has never been updated, but it still has the original chris craft bed covers on the beds. The boat is 98% complete and all original including the radar, Frig, Auto Pilot everything. This boat should be cleaned up and put in a museum.
    Hull has been sand blasted and painted $15,000.00 and another $15,000.00 spent having a trailer built for it. Comes with Spare 2 Stainless Steel Drive shafts and 2 new spare props.
    Always been in fresh water. For its first 28 years with the original owner it was kept in a boat house with power lift. Since then it was wintered inside a shed when not in use. We paid it off last fall and haven't had it in the water our selves. So we haven't had the chance to even try it out. Our plans may have changed, such is life.

    Hello!
    what a shame that you should sell her even before you've had a chance, to try her on the sea

    We haven't sold her yet, were just talking about it and testing the water for potential buyers.

    Its sitting in storage for the winter up in Baudette, Mn. But if some one does'nt snatch it up soon, it will be over in Deluth, Mn. by this late spring. And then the work begins! Though it really does'nt need a whole lot done, just a good cleaning up. From there we will move aboard and head to the East coast and then eventually South to warmer waters. YEA!!!!!!!!:)
