    Yes

    It is inside, but economy so bad now, not improving and my business is not good.... will have to slow down. We are going through hell in USA these days. I know why, but best not to say as many people reading this may not grasp why or perhaps disagree. It's a matter fo understanding the politcal economic climate many Amercians do not grasp well. No point in arguing political religions. Sufffice it to say, we will be better after November of 2010 when the educuted American people vote for big changes. Until then, it will be slow going for most people working in the private sector.

    Yes we have some problems here in Sweden to. We are so dependent on you and when the banks went bankrupt with you got the consequences here in sverige.but our economy is now heading up GM selling Saab and it was good for Sweden steel exports increase.so I hope 2010 is going to be better then last year

    Interesting

    1) Go to Google...
    2) Type in 3 Words together:
    3) Dodd Obama Raines

    You can rely on the media or you can read scholarly documentation on the subject. Believe what you choose to believe. People are free to decide what they feel is truth, far be it from me to make suggestions, allow your own mind to decide. Last I took a True False test, there was only one right letter. S for spin was not one of the letters... ony T or F. Do believe what Pravda writes too?

    I may be fairly well-informed and can read well-written speaches too. Some will do anything for votes, others will do anything for boats. Whenever some wish to populate their thoughts with misrepresetation or disimformation, they can always detour to MSNBC.

    Agreed.

    Homer, we try to avoid subjects like politics and religion on YF. They often serve to divide a community that is united by a common interest. Please keep threads on topic!

    Will do Carl...

    It was a bit of a response to Dr. Sweeden's comment on steel plants and the like that has hurt Sweeden as a result of the worldwide "slowdown" which did start here; informed individuals do know ground zero, who and why.

    What happended is what I wrote for fellow sailors to "Google." I made no comment, let others reach their own. It is my business and I am well-read on the matter, a bipartisan reality indeed, BUT sorry if it was found to be an inappapropriate location for a piece of noteworthy research, AND it did relate/affect the boating industy... shut it right down! In fact, perhaps Hat is partially correct, but I looked though some of his posts and found off-topic comments as well, but did not feel inspired to "tat hat." If I have an issue with someone's behavior, I look them directly in their own eye. What I did not like is the: "See Carl" tattle, nobody welcomes this approach. A private message to me would have been the way to handle. I would have respected and clearly heard in all due fairness. Case closed, I shall remain on topic.

    The thread I started is getting more and more swamped as you can see. It's exciting to see so many Roamers flying out of the woodwork that never would have been seen or known about.. testimony not only to Chris Craft's longevity, but to the classic American production breed itself.... not bad to see them all looking so great nearly 45 years later. People are reved-up about this company and this great American name. People are learning more and more, as am I.

    I read your other commentary about intimidating others on the "closed thead"... "if you know a lot." I do know a fair amount about Roamers and may be one of the, or perhaps the only orignial owner/son around so have much to share. And, I always answer people's questions best I can, even if I must research first and do encourage participation and feedback. People are coming out of the woodwork and they are adding to the qualtiy of the Forum and presentation. I'ts encouraged and some cool stuff is happening. I can't imagine what your bandwidth bill is though.. must be an ouch!

    Again, I am truly sorry if I was inappropriate in any way... but do happen to know what is going on "Downtown."

    Take Care,

    Homer Roamer

    I agree with you K1W1, and thank you Homer for answering all my dumb questions. It's guys like you that go out of their way to help fellow Roamer owners out that make this stuff fun and wothwhile.
    Also, not to be nosey, but does anyone know as to the wherabouts of our
    fearless leader Eric? Now there's a guy who has done incredible things
    to keep the Roamer legacy alive and well. Hope all is well with Eric - We miss you.

    Ya I know Captain Eric

    Watjam.... I will hook you up.. I know him well, been on Tin Tonic, he's been on my wreck too, but something must be wrong. He does not call me back, as if me be a downwind ripe chunk of Limburger Cheese.

    You bet!

    Hats off to the wild Swede!

    Someone misrepresented the condition of steel hull. He bought it in USA and shipped it to Sweeden then found it needed MAJOR plating. He did the job, did not to complain, and now it appears he has a Roamer that could crush glaciers.

    The man did it! Not all steel Roamers have this issue, he's fixed it better than new it seems.

    It's Miller time for Captain Sweeden.

    If you do not mind me asking.. how many American dollars did it take to replate your hull?
