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 Thanks guys, great info

Hello people,

it is unbelievable how you clean depends on this matter.
The letter of Paul, I find quite complicated, but I found a treat that was written in May 2009 at 4:38 pm by Paul, including the Prospectus. This boat actually corresponds exactly, as well as design and drive, to my boat at home.
As well as Paul describes the cause, it is a modular principle of Lancer / Commander with an idiosyncratic desing of the interior.

Thomas says that there is a tank vent, but I have found body filler sites on both sides while removing the old paint in almost the same level of about 8x10 cm bolting-holes have to which also point out that there were any signs attached.

I got much information from you on the preparation and equipment of the boat.
It would probably also interesting how many of them still exist.

Here are some pictures during the restoration.
The original images when I brought the boat from Italy, I am sending you tomorrow. I hope in a larger and better quality.

Yours sincerely,
