CHRIS CRAFT COMMANDER FORUM ® .......A photo-intensive technical reference file and ongoing newsletter regarding the original fiberglass Chris-Craft Commander series. This is an independent not-for-profit and non-commercial web site, not affiliated with the Chris Craft Commander Club ~~ or ~~ Chris-Craft Corporation. Our mission here is to "have fun and share information" about the Commander series (and those associated fiberglass boats on the Chris-Craft family tree) for your individual personal use, and by doing so help promote the good name of Chris-Craft, and help preserve, restore, and appreciate Chris-Craft boats. The main reference feature is the ever expanding MASTER INDEX File which contains what we believe to be the world's largest collection of documentation photos and technical information on the Chris-Craft Commander line of boats, (like these original brochure scans, featuring the iconic first 38 Commander styled by Fred Hudson, and many of the great Dick Avery renditions that followed) , (a huge collection of Chris-Craft 427 tuning and specification information), and a few words about how to use the forum.

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".

Response to Photo posting?

Photo posting requires you to post the uploaded properties of the photo. Just cut and paste the properties into your thread where you want the photo to appear. Bingo, it's there. You can click on "preview" to see if your photo is working before you post your thread.

For those readers who may not know what photo properties are, here's how they work.

First you must upload your photo to a photo host like or

Once you've done that, then pull your photo up where you can see it on the screen, right click on it and you'll see a box with a variety of listings. Generally on the bottom of the list you'll see "properties" listed. When you click on "properties", then you'll see the Address (UEL) properties of the photo. That's the internet code to your photo. It can simply be cut and pasted into this forum, and the photo will appear.

The Address (URL) properties of a photo generally look something like this doctored version below. If it was a real link you wouldn't see it here, becuase you'd be looking at the photo instead.

http: //

Note they generally start with http and end with jpg.

As a test, look at any photo on the internet, right click on it, go to properties, and you can also cut and paste those properties here and share the photo here as well.

Now for readers who may have photos to share but don't have access or time to upload their own photos. If this is the case, please send your photos and comments via email to and I'll upload them for you!


right click on the photo above, test your skills! This is what you should see if you click on the photo. Now click on "properties"

Here's what you should see when you click on "properties". The box comes up, click and drag across properties, as illustrated here, and then copy.

Now you've successfully captured the properties of the photo as illustrated below, and you can paste this link in emails and other personal uses, etc. Be careful not to infringe upon copyrights! A tip, if you paste it in an email, hit "enter" immediately behind the link to activate it, so your recipient can click on it and automatically see the image! You can tell when it's activated when you see an underline under the URL.


Okay the first thing you need to do is get a Photobucket account and load up your images.
Them must be in digital internet ready format.
There are other free services such as but Photobucket is the best.

Once you do that then go find a photo you want, click on it and you will see something
EXACTLY like this one I copied from my own p-bucket a few minutes ago. Your screen should look very close to what you see right here.

I am not shouting by the way.

This is what you want to use, just copy this DIRECT LINK info, and paste it here on this forum in your text where you want the image to appear.

Here is the image I got when I followed my own directions here on this forum.

Good luck, once you figure it out it will be pretty easy.

As for the guys with the Ipads, you have to tap or get some other way to find the "source" of the image if you are just grabbing something off the internet, such as "copy image url location" or something, but if you are using the photobucket site, the directions above work just the same.

Good luck,


If this is too much of a hassle, as it was for me a short while ago before I was motivated to start this web site and learn about html, etc., just email your photos to me and I'll be happy to work with you so your message and images can get out!
