    Attached please find latest copy of "Known Survivors".
    Encompasses all Roamers we have found to exist today.
    Sorry about the .txt format - it was the only one that would load here.
    OWNERS/ROAMER SPOTTERS:
    CHECK over the list and see if you see your boat and/or any others that you know about. There's a 50 cent reward for all new "additions" - $1.00 if it includes a hull# :p
    Cheers!

    Roamer

    I saw a Roamer in Solomons, Md. It had a hard shell on the aft deck, almost didn't recognize it as a Roamer. Know anything about it?

    There's a member in our yacht club with a handsome 57' Roamer 1966 model. She is the former "Lazy Bones" currently named Bella Nave'. Is she in your list?

    She's a Brick!

    Ouuhh!
    Quite the fine Roamer, no?
    Didnt realize this one had changed handz - but he's one lucky guy indeed.
    Got her down for a silver anniversary award, but unfortunately no hull # (darn).
    Shame really - that one is a certain "millenium" cruiser (year 3000 AD:rolleyes: ).
    Wish I'd make it so long sailing on Earth.
    Meanwhile, hope all is well at Kent Narrows.:p
    Cheers!

    57 Roamer

    Well, we certainly appreciate the hull #, and can tell you that she's a "steelie". Some more technical data can be found here:
    http://www.reocities.com/alloyed2sea/Motoryacht_Riviera_57.html
    But we have nothing in the records about this particular boat (name?) - sorry to say. :eek:
    Wonder if you have you actually seen her & where that might have been.
    Jim Wyck at www.chris.parts probably helped build her and is always very helpful with good advice.
    Hope all turns out well.
    Cheers!

    Interiors

    Craig -
    Formica was the "wave of the future" which CC began to use in the late 60s. No surprise your Roamer (name?) has it. The good (gudder?) news is that - should you wish for a warmer, more "real" wood interior, now you can apply your own wave-of-the-future: Pressure Sensitive Adhesive - (PSA) backed veneer: all, in any one of a number of wood finishes.

    This stuff is Awesome!
    Have even used it successfully in areas that get a bit of weather.
    Finally, hope for the "woodless".
    Cheers!

    Correction to List of Known Survivors

    Eric I have a correction to give you on the list of Know Survivors. An email that I received from the owner of the 1957 31' "Rhiannon" , ROX-31-157, states that it is a 1961 model. And my boat, 35' 1960 Riviera ROX-35-418 "The Shangri-La" is also a 1961 model built and delivered on Dec 27, 1960.

    Interesting side note: As I was working on the Roamer this weekend (got most of the aft head demo'd) I found lost behind a cabinet the old ships radio station licence (Why in the aft head? I can only guess that Toilette paper was scarce) which lists this vessels name as "Still Afloat".
    Based on the old owners address (two owners ago) it looks like this boat may have been kept in southern Lake Huron. If anyone has any knowledge of this boats history - or has a photo of the "Still Afloat" I would love to hear from you.
    Thanks

    The "Algoma"

    Happy to add to the List if Known Survivors, the "Algoma" which I recently purchased. It has been in Hancock, Michigan for several years, and I believe it came from lower Michigan but don't know when she was relocated. A 32 Foot Riviera Roamer. Lovin' it !

    Wow, what a sweetie!
    And a rare one too - one of just 98 made.
    http://www.reocities.com/alloyed2sea/Riviera_Express_32.html
    Glad to see this one has fallen into good hands (again).
    Clearly, more than just a survivor - this Riviera looks like she puts the local Sea Ray contingent to shame everyday/way.
    Cheers!
