We extend to you a cordial "WELCOME ABOARD !" Come on in, make yourself at home, we are a friendly group of enthusiasts, and we also appreciate the classic Chris Craft Roamer, Corsair, and Lancer boats too , as they are all on the same family tree and share much in common ! Just start by posting a note introducing yourself to the group, that's all it takes here (we don't ask for or retain any personal information here, because our intention is to just "have fun and share information".
You're welcome, too, as we're only too happy to host photos of a Commander in this kind of condition. It represents part of the Chris Craft legacy that Chris wanted to protect when they over-engineered the first 1964 fiberglass commander.
In addition, anyone in the ACBS is automatically welcome on this site. I find those members considerate, informed, friendly, and genuine to the bone! I served on their international board in 1984, if you have an old directory you can look me up! I also was a charter member of the DIXIELAND chapter, which originally had a jurisdiction and responsibility for 8 states. We had a blast back then, and the chapter is still going strong! I hope to see you at the ACBS annual meeting this year, you know they really put on the dog!
In the future, as you run and enjoy this beautiful craft, please email me photos directly, or post them here on the site, because I will gladly host them here. It's a beautiful boat, not many like her are left!
We're primarily focused on fiberglass Commanders here, but most everyone has an appreciation for wood boats too, and many of us own a wood boat or two also.
Regards, all the best,
