    Think your boat is all ship shape and ready to go?
    Well, the Joneses have been busy, adding to their inventory and building up that "Pier Pressure". :p
    Yikes!

    Question for Jonathan

    Nice looking job on the helm and surrounding mahogany! It is on my to do list but it might still be to do when launch comes in 30 days!

    My question is do your horizintal shades extend all of the way to the windshield?
    I am trying to figure out if I should put a snap in drape or curtain of sunbrella in that little triangle. What did you do? Any Pictures?

    To be honest, I can't recall. I will be down at the boat next week, I will check it out and get back to you. From what I faintly remember the blinds do not go all the way to the windshield and the sunbrella windshield cover wraps around to cover the area - like you described. I will get back to you.

    Cheers,

    The blinds do not go to the windshield. They have a triangle piece in
    front of them. The canvas cover over the windshield wraps around to
    the side and covers to ensure everything is covered.

    Where did you get those pictures? I was shocked to see our boat
    interior on here!

    BTW, we're not naming the boat what WindsorRoamer indicated.

    Good Stuff

    Found them on the web before you bought the boat.
    Thought the changes made were rather excellent - fine wood work combined with a sharp design improvement. Wish I had drawers like that. :p

    Before we looked at it I was worried about a hack-job modification. Quite honestly, most people think she was built like that. It suits our needs perfectly. It was done up in Canada (so the story goes) and they did an immaculate job!

    The rear window is automatic, the woodwork is incredible, the bridge is perfect. We couldn't have asked for a better boat for us. The interior room is amazing. We were told the modification cost about $70-75k US.

    ...The best part...she's a Roamer! :D

    InspirE-ation

    No surprise really.
    These old Roamers inspire alot (alot) of owner enthusiasm.
    Once you've owned one for a while, you understand what a great product CC turned out - worth all the dough & time we sock into'em.
    See what I mean....

    Now that is a helm station!!

    OK Eric,
    Whose boat is that??

    It looks fantastic. Isn't it great that just when you think you have the boat looking good someone else lets you see how far we have yet to go!!
