Our 1969 Chris Craft Roamer 46 Refit: From Boatyard Ghost Ship to Concept to Execution
I’m using this blog to document the process by which our 1969 Chris Craft Roamer 46 goes from being an unloved ghost ship that sat for 20 years in “Purgatory Row” of a Southern Maryland boatyard to a completely refitted vessel. I’ll show the process of dejunking, disassembly and demolition, during which we developed a final vision or concept for how we’d like it to turn out. This all started in late 2007. Once I catch the blog up on the historical work, I’ll transition to a weekly blog of current work.
The header picture for the blog is what we think the Roamer will look like when we’re done. It’s a heavily edited version of the picture below, the first one we ever took of the boat. Let’s hope my skills with the refit are better than my skills with MS Paint! 😉
