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 More photos ( some of the cars )

Well first of all I'm surprised they let me into this joint but hey, Lolly must have told them to humor me and let me in. I also got the feeling that I don't get out of town enough, ha. To say this was a fabulous world class club is understating the obvious. While we were there today, I ran into Jack Telneck, who was a designer for FoMoCo and did some time with Chris Craft as well. We had a nice talk and we then split up to our respective groups, he was there as a guest of a club member and I was there as part of the event.

Inside during the wine tasting event, which was a LOT of fun. Hey, who is that guy taking pictures with a camera phone, get him out of here!!

Here is the view from our table this morning during the brunch. I think you can see this is another world, certainly for me, but it is fun to visit that world once in a while! Maybe when I win the lottery I can go back?
