HI! I am new here. I wanted to introduce myself but also get involved in the Chris Craft Roamer threads. I am in the process of purchasing a 1974 60 foot Chris Craft Roamer. She is the style with the galley up and opened to the salon. I am very excited and will be living on her with my daughter (14 years old) and it will be our full time home. I am in the middle of selling my home and selling everything in it to move aboard our new home. She/we will be at docked Volunteer Landing in Knoxville and I understand there is a great live aboard community, so we are excited about that too. I used to live on a sailboat in the Caribbean with my family (48 ft Sparkman and Stevens Yawl) when I was younger and worked on many large mega motor Yachts - Jan Pamela II, Kalizma and a few others, besides was a crew on many charter sailing yachts, including the Trimaran of Wanderlust out of Tortola BVI. Which was our homeport with our yacht named Insouciant. Here is the picture of my future home and I really look forward to any advice and information people have about the marina and who is a good mechanic besides inside boat cabinet makers. I am a very handy person and plan on taking a diesel mechanics class besides learning how to fix paint on aluminum hulls. I already know how to varnish and that was my job on some mega yachts at times, so that is not a concern. This will be my first time handling a large motor boat as I have been a sailor. Any helpful information on the marina and the boat is much appreciated! The picture of what will be our new home!
