    The placement of the flat panel screen in the salon certainly looks like an afterthought. Otherwise, the workmanship looks legendary. Really like the choice of woods/colors etc. The countertop in the galley is HUGE. Two thumb's up!

    Sooo... where are the BIG Roamer's Chris Craft? :p

    Not Clear

    Very true.
    Is this the "new" 40 or the 43?
    Guess I should check the CC website.

    Eric,

    This was labelled the "40' Roamer" on the disc I recieved from CC a couple of weeks ago. Could it be the 43' version? Better check their website. :eek:

    Old is New (Again).

    This has to be the 43' which was originally designated a 39' and now itz back to being a Roamer 40. Carefully "slotted" to make way for a new, longer still Roamer?
    Well, thatz my guesstimate.
    Here's how she looked when originally launched in 2000-2001 by OMC (remember OMC?). :p

    Only thing that would make her perfect is if she were made of steel.

    I don't disagree with your choice of materials, but she would be a Lead-Sled. ;)

    That's not actually true. It's all about displacement in the water, and the shape of the hull bottom, and what is inside of it determines that. The truth is steel costs more, and the artisians who crafted it here in America no longer work at the trade because of the so called miracle fiberglass that is much easier to mold but breaks down, and needs more repairing for lesser, and lesser reasons, and is what the manufacturers have decided to sell us.

    She could be a lead-sled but she'd be a TRUE Roamer! I still have trouble with them not being steel or aluminium.

    So you're saying weight doesn't play a role in this equation?

    And steel doesn't need maintenance?

    Did you know Detroit Diesel was bidding to buy OMC before Bombardier? Can you imagine, a D.D. outboard? :rolleyes:

    To answer question 1 first I'l like you to consider a plane steel barge that is empty, and one that is full of cargo. You see, it isn't what the hull is made of it is what it carries inside that adds to the depth in the water, and a yacht doesn't carry much in the way of heavy cargo like a barge would. So the draft becomes almost insignificant if you put the same thing inside of a steel hull as you would a fiberglassed hull. The weight isn't really that much different when both are done properly, but the steel crinkles on rocks, and fiberglass holes out. Check out the damaged boats from the Hurricane season we just went through, and you will see that they are mostly boats made of fiberglass that had they been made of steel wouldn't have half as much repairs to be made, or wouldn't have sunk right at their docks.

    As for maintainence, that depends on what kind of water the yacht is in, and how well the owner takes care of it. Isn't it? Yes, normal, not stainless steel will rust more easily in saltwater, but hardly at all in fresh water, but fiberglass will blister, crack, and not take a bumping very well, and aluminum will corrode through electollisis, and wood will rot if not taken care of. But you tell me, which hull material would you want the ship to be built of if you were going on an ocean liner? And by the way=Most steel hulled owners have their hulls epoxy resined.
