Strange looking 38' on Ebay in need of alot of TLC. Anybody close to it that could look at it? I wonder how much it would cost in fuel to cruise it to north Florida?
edit comment: As time would eventually show, the boat noted in Wes's post above was eventually acquired by Steven, who posted the acknowledgement here, and offered some additional photos, one of which is posted below. Now we have a complete documentation on this unique evolution of the 38 Commander hull. Cool eh?
PHOTO OF THE DAY AWARD
(January 24, 2007)
Edit Comment: "The photo above was awarded the "Photo of the Day" on January 24 because of the interesting photo composition and great story about how this boat was acquired, and how it is being upgraded now. This boat has the distinction of having been spotted for sale on Ebay, had been identified and discussed here on the Forum, and then re-discovered after it was acquired. Steven is the lucky new owner who reported in to the Forum, and he's presently in the process of getting this interesting piece of Chris Craft boating history ready for service next season!
Nice job Steven!

(ABOVE:) Here is a 1971 38’ Sedan Flybridge, with the “second generation” topsides and cabin layout. Steven just acquired this boat, and the photo above shows the unique topside design of the 38 Commander, as it evolved into the first big model change of the cabin. This is the first one of it’s kind to be documented here, and we’re happy to be able to feature photos of this interesting evolution of the Commander hull.
The boat has recently been acquired, it’s on the hard now and it’s being readied for a relocation cruise. Three generations of family members have been able to assist in the fun so far, and this is the stuff great memories are made of. That's Steven's Dad in the photo, by the way, and it's always great to see family members like this getting a piece of the excitement and fun. Congratulations to Steve!
