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 !

1993 new photos

Here some other photos of that job.The big difference between the original layout and today is that i changed the cable steering with a hynautic hydraulic system, doing that i could move the helm foward by 18 inches which gave the room to put a fold down helm seat, a under counter sub zero freezer and that starbord salon seat. But because of that fix seat i had to find another place for the electrical panel.I decided to put it close to the helm station, but the home electrical entrance did not look very good, SO i decided to dig a little deeper in my POCKET and got myself a BASS PRODUCT electrical panel.On the port side there was a big stand up refrigirator freezer which was not looking good, so decidedto build a L shaped counter and put a frige underneath,and build a dish cabinet over it.On the exterior of the boat we painted the boat recrome every parts, put new tempered tinted windows,teak doors finished the top over it[looked weird without it] a teak deck.
Thanks again.
Philippe.
