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 Aye.....having some fun at the YC, we actually have big boats here in Tennessee !!

We are very thankful the weather cooperated and gave us a nice day on Saturday. We met at the Commodore Yacht Club and fired up the big dogs, and believe it or not we had whitecaps on long stretches of the river. We saw several bald eagles, and on one occasion we passed by an eagle nest and watched one come in and put those big claws out and land on a branch, at fairly close range to the boat. WOW that was amazing.

Janet and Emma joined us later in the day and we had a huge feast Saturday night, Olivia showed us how to grille pinapple steaks that had been first placed in granulated sugar. Good times brought together through a common love of classic Chris Craft boating.
