    will post a pic as soon as I can. she is in very good condition, twin 350 chevy, onan generator gave up after only 48 years and has a kohler now. steel hull is in great shape. she looks a lot like the one above except with mast, the interior is amazing and no changes from original. All the wood is in incredible condition.

    Heres another one saved from the smelter... 1959 35 foot. Owner has another 1964 36 in aluminum The '59 was a wreck last year and held captive in a north Michigan barn all winter. The '64 is slated to come out next year. These are in Montague/Whitehall, Mich. This one is pretty smooth I'd say!

    Notice the transom door and gate. Have no idea what the hull numbers are. This was passed on to me by a friend with a 53 Hatteras from Whitehall.

    Wondering if I can get a list of known survivors. I have the Offshore Roamer hull 38-207 - Name is currently Steel Aweigh Too. We are the 4th owners of this 1964 38' Offshore Roamer. The owner before us also used it in the St. Lawrence River, 1000 Islands. The name of the boat was Summer Session. He was a professor at SUNY Oswego. We have named it Steel Aweigh Too. First owner last name was Trump (not Donald), Second owner, Smith, 3rd owner Shafer, 4th owner - Stewart. Of course she is for sale if anyone is interested. - 2020, still for sale.

    Wow!
    This Regal (sedan version) 35 really shines! (Need hull#).
    Now about that '6'4 Riviera (Express?) 36' you mentioned - need any further info your Hatteras friend might have -- want to add her to the "List of Known Roamers" --- copies of which are available at my email: alloyed2sea at yahoo dot com. We've found over 465 (23%) of all Roamers (Steel and Aluminium) ever produced.
    CHeers!
