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".

PHOTOS ( Chris Craft Commander Photo Boat )

Response to PHOTOS ( Some great close up shots while running !! )

Here's the 31' Commander Sedan, powered with 327Q motors. This boat is in SUPERB condition, the chrome is perfect, the motors are low hours, and it runs like a champ.

Here is SHADY LADY out on the Cumberland. We were transferring a camera at the time, and I took the opportunity to take a photo of them! I understand there is another series of photos that were taken with another camera too. It will be fun to see those too!

Yes, they're running with the fender down, proof that Canadians aren't the only people who do this, lol.

Here are the Pletcher's aboard SHADY LADY, motoring in to say "that was fun!" after the photo shoot.

This was a great day on the water, and a wonderful way to spend some fun time with your family. Janet didn't attend this run, because she had other obligations, and it allowed me to spend as much time as I needed to to be sure the boat is ready for Old Hickory Lake (which it is! )

In the next few weeks, and all through the autumn season, we'll be cruising this boat on Old Hickory. We'll also be running the big dogs in the 38 Express too, on the same water these photos were taken.
