    That is the biggest boat I've EVER seen on a trailer! You move that with a Semi right?

    Looks like another dreamer is moving on. The boat's on ebay for $72,000

    It's maybe not unreasonable to assume that anybody interested in the boat on ebay will do an internet search, find this thread and see that it was $45k two years ago, before some disassembly appears to have happened. I wonder what happened to bump the price up from what it was two years ago? http://www.yachtforums.com/forums/c...down-payment-1965-57-roamer-3.html#post137290

    I paid $45,000.00 for it 2 years ago. And I practically stoled it at that price!

    The seller was desparate to get some cash to continue expanding his business.

    And there has not been any disassembly, I haven't done any thing to the boat since I baught it.

    And yes, this dreamer has decided to take a short cut and buy another boat already in the water.

    If I recall correctly, one of the ebay pix looked like somebody had put the aft deck built-in furniture in a shed.

    Anyway, good luck with the sale!

    Thats because they are not built in but removable. They are now sitting on the deck of the boat where it is now stored.

    This boat has pretty much every thing it came with back in 1965. This boat with a good cleaning and just a bit of work could easily be restored to ORIGINAL show room condition.

    And thanks for your wonderfull input.

    No harm,...

    .., no foul.
    She's an absolute beauty, but girls like that usually come at a great cost.
    No doubt she was once named "High Maintenance".
    Hopefully, her star will land into strong hands and thus secure her place in the Roamer firmament.
    Good luck with the sale - will pass along all interested parties.
    Cheers!
    -Eric

    57' CC Roamer For Sale

    Thanks Eric for the kind words.

    Had a call on her this morning from a man who says he wants the boat but will have to wait for a settle ment that he is expecting to get in the next 30-90 days. He lives just down the shore from the original owner on Lk Erie. He saw one just like this one and fell in love but missed getting it.

    He was kind enough to say that if some one with the money in hand shows up before he can, that he wouldn't blame me for letting her go.

    Bitter sweet. He is a certified boat mechanic that had a boat fall on him while working on it. After years of fighting with work comp and going through rehab, he is finally getting back to the point where he can atleast enjoy the water again. I hope he gets the money soon. He sounds like the kind of guy who would really love and apreciate this boat. Bonus, if he does get the boat he wants me to get her all done for him and help him cruise it back home.:)

    Hello,

    I was writing to inquire if the sale of your 57 went through as planned. If not, please reply to discuss her future.

    We still have her and haven't made much effort in selling her. We have begun to make some progress in getting her moved back to Lake Superior. What do you have in mind?
