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 Record readership and number of countries tuning in this month !

As the moderator of this forum I get to see all the data, drill down into various areas, and it is always a treat to see the map of the world unfold like this one. With one day to go, I doubt if the world map will change much, since there is almost every country represented already, that we would normally expect to see. In the past I've seen readership from Afghanistan and Iraq, undoubtedly from US Servicemen, perhaps some of those were from Jerry? Those countries have yet to log in this month.

In the pages read category I have deleted this into as it is confidential, but there are many tens of thousands of pages read each month,this one setting the alltime record. I left the last few countries on the chart to show the more obscure locations coming in, and they change ranking up and down as readership for each country is reported in automatically on the net. I dare say, there is more technology doing all this than it took to put a man on the moon. The 4 Gigabyte chip in my digital camera for instance, a 16 G was available, and that IPhone, sheesh, technogoly is amazing.

It is interesting how we are using technology to further our love of a classic boat, designed long before any of the engineers had a HP calculator, and they were using slide rules doing all this.
They were also lofting and drawing by hand, none of this CADD stuff, computer drafting, autocorrect, ha, these days an autocorrect program would make the boat look like a bleach bottle.
