    Well, she's on the list- but there aren't many details. Here are some new ones for you...

    1964 Commodore RBD-38-56** previously "No Name" is currently "Curtains" will be renamed (following proper procedures and ceremonial offerings) in the very near future. Lives in SW Florida (Alva for now) on the Caloosahatchee river. She was re-powered with a pair of Perkins 4-236 marine engines (I'll post what the transmissions are when I know), reportedly with less than 300 hours on them currently. All systems are functional but we have a LOT of cosmetic work to do. Hull will need bottom paint soon, as well as a few re-repairs (some new plating looks to have been put on hastily). Bilge had water in it, but we are told it's from rain (not hard to believe- there are a lot of places for it to get in)- we dried it with a wet vac and will see how it is in a day or so. We will start our own thread with updates and additional info soon.

    The fly bridge is wonderful. I believe 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 was Summer Session. He was a professor at SUNY Oswego. We have named it Steel Aweigh Too. This is our second steel hull CC Roamer. The first was 1960, 30' Riveria? We sold that in 1998 in Syracuse, NY. Don't know what happened to that. 2016, We are still restoring. Working on wood rot currently.. Last year, was the bottom corners of the fly bridge. Here is a picture from July 4, 2015. 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.

    1960 35s carry the following hull#s:
    ROX-35-226 to ROX-35-265* (1960)
    ROS-35-266 to ROS-35-275* (1960)
    ROX-35-276 to ROS-35-316* (1960)
    Quite a few made, few survive. We have found only 42 out of the (20) Regals, and (366) Rivieras made from 1956-61.
    Cheers!

    Just saved a 37 foot aluminum Roamer Convertible soft top from the scrapper. The Back deck is "gone" but easily replaced. It will also need some fresh power but I have never seen another "in person" Anxious to get this one floating again. If anyone has photos of a soft top, I would love to see them. Ray

    Sorry for the absence, Summers are precious in Wisconsin, No time for the internet. We've been chasing the 37' convertible for many years and the owner (south side Chicago) finally let her go. It was a lot nicer 10 years ago but we'll take her. My brother is taking on the challenge and I am happy to help. We built a custom hydraulic trailer so we don't have to depend on anyone to get these floating, Attached are a couple of pics from last week when it was moved from the elements into the heated building for restoration.

    Custom hydraulic trailer?
    That could be worth another thread.

    No Sand, This is Northern Wisconsin. dig down 12" and you have solid Rock. And yes, the hydraulic trailer was a "must". Watching my brother launch his 38' Aluminum on a bunk trailer at the local boat launch with his F250 was a little Red Neck. (no offense folks) Retrieving it was even better utilizing the same bunk trailer was amazing, (no winch) it only took him 10 minutes. The funny part is watching someone lift the phone lines over the fly bridge to get it home because it sits too high on the trailer. fortunately its only a couple of miles home. No joke. Any way, problem solved with the new trailer, and big brother just acquired an older Oshkosh 4WD truck that will be the new tow vehicle. Too many boats to launch with a family of 7 siblings, all with the Roamer fever and a pile of off spring with the similar desire. Life is good. Own a Roamer! My father gave us the fever when we grew up on his 42' Roamer. super cool dad. God rest his sole. attached photo is my fathers 42 footer when we were kids with "Johnny" at the helm. scan0001.jpg
