    Wow was Shutterfly a PIA! Talk about confusing... more clunky poor interface directives... but above you got the pictures now.

    Thank you Old Phart. It was a bad year for crabs though.

    Not sure where to post, but would someone be interested in a late 60s ALUMINUM Roamer, I believe it's a Regal, has the triple sliding doors aft, Flybridge, Onan, stock 427s with 1700 hours showing on gages, pretty nice woodwork inside yet, needs full resto, GREAT bones as far as I can tell, solid decks, been sitting a few years, but I think she has a good history. If I could convince the owner to sell, would somebody be interested, and how much would she be worth? Other than paint and obviously restoration, she looks straight and fair. I know these ALUMINUM beauties are worthwhile, so thought I'd reach out.
    If anyone's interested, get in touch and I'll find more info.
    Thanks all.

    I just finished my 9 year opus to rebuild a 1966 roamer 37-2510 I slashed the boat last Thursday , thankfully no major leaks
    The mechanic had replaced the cutlass bearings 5 years ago put the props on backwards without key in the key way. 6 days later the 2 new 350 MPI crusader engineers are on line and cranking out some major power I got 26.5 Kn full open with a great rooster tail.
    I'm a little techno slow on the I pad I have some great pic

    Caledonia splashed on Thursday last week. With the marina service departments help we've been working on the engines last 4 days
    Finally after sitting for 8 years they are running true and smooth. Prop shfts and linkages all fine tuned. We had a sea trial today, wow I wasn't hoping for anything this good 26.5 Kn at full throttle with a great rooster tail. PhotoS of the finished job can be seen at URL: Caledoniafinishedpics72015@shutterfly.com
    We are docked in Bayfield Wi in Lake Superior☺️
