My 37 1965 AL Roamer Rivera project is nearing completion and I must be crazy. Finished the interior and I have just about finished the hull repaint. Boy it takes a long time only working on Saturdays as boat is about an hour away and Marina is closed on Sundays. Chalk that up to another lesson learned. After looking at those bigger Roamers and my current position in life ( IE kids will be done w high school soon). I was thinking on moving up to a size full time liveaboard. Anyway I have been trolling west coast craigslists for cheap CC boats with potential engines for my engine swap and possible misc parts. tons of woodies and commanders around here but almost no Roamers. Still debating in my mind value of rebuilts vs completely new engines and 90% sure I was going new until this came up. Anyway A awhile back I came across a 37' Steel Roamer with two rebuilt engines and a trailer. Sellers vision of value and mine were off by about $10K so I said give me a call if you dont find a buyer at your price. So last week out of the blue I get that call. This opportunity has me back peddaling I am mostly interested in the rebuilt 350's, drive train, misc trim parts and of course the trailer which would give me three trailer options for my AL Roamer. From the pics the steelie would probably be a complete rehab but steel is easy to work with compared to the AL and I have a lot of confidence in what I can do in regards to a restoration based on what I have done so far. My thoughts on the steelie would to completely gut her except for the hull and fiberglass cabin top. Id like to go with a hamilton waterjet pump and a single diesel. I would probable keep the rudders to complement slow speed manuvering but everything else would go. Those were my plans if I got a bigger roamer in tough shape. If I found one in real good shape I would stick to origional set up. The 37 is smaller than I want for boat number 2 but maybe I could use it as a trade up. AM I CRAZY and should be sent to the asylum or should I do it???
