Ok. So when looking at a steel hull roamer what does one look for? What are the pitfalls of a steel hull I like the style and wonder if they are any less of an issue than a wood boat when it comes to the bottom? Thanks To answer your steel hull questions, check out this Roamer site: http://www.yach...

Fuel use

Last year, before I had these engines rebuilt and the bottom redone, I averaged 1.25 miles per gallon total at 8.5 mph. I'll be checking again shortly to see if there is much improvement.

Heavy?

I don't think the steel Roamer is heavy. My 38 foot weights in at 21000 lbs.

Roamer Commodore

Hey Richard
We would sure like to see more photos of your Commodore, especially underway. Also, did you know, available on Ebay, a copy of an 1963 advertisement for your Commodore is available. I bought and framed one for my Offshore.

Commodore

Hi Roamer fans I just discovered and joined this forum I have a 1964 Roamer Offshore. The Commodore is very rare! I have only once come across another one a few years ago. I have 413 Chryslers in my Offshore. What engines are in your Commodore? What body of water is it on? http://s2.postimage.org/1x...
