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 Congratulations

Paul and all,

This is a great site. happy.gifhappy.gifhappy.gifhappy.gif Thanks.

Barb just looks at me and smiles, she know me all to well.

The Lancer was at Holiday Marina Harbor in Celeron, NY. I called Dave Hanson, a friend of Chris Wade and one of the new marina owners. They just took over the marina a couple of years ago and are trying to get it back on it's feet. As with a lot of marinas.

When we went to Corning at the start of our trip to NJ, we drove over Lake Chautauqua, then later when we drive down to the marina and then seen the water up close, NICE. What a great place for a Lancer. The marine had one indoor storage building with a bunch of cool CC wood's.

I had only talked to Dave once a couple of days before we showed up on his door step at eight clock in the morning. They were all great and really helped it all come together. They were happy to see it go to.
I didn't know you had to give your first born to buy a trailer in NY? happy.gif
I had to replace one set of wheel bearing and rewire the tail light grounds, but we were still off by noon. The trailer is a 1973, it's in bad shape, but look solid.

We took out our 360 powered Lancer today and she got a lot of looks.
We rafted off with some friends and were on the inside of a black and white Yamma Twin Engine Jet Drive, bah, bah, bah, and the Lancer got all the comments. There was a couple young man in the 27' Carver which was on the other side of us and when I poped the hood, they wowed, cool.

That's Brian, son number three standing with the white.
