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".

The secret is OUT about how Mike got his 23 Lancer done so fast (not pretty)

You know we keep a pretty nice tone here on the Chris Craft Commander Forum, Inc., but every now and then
we have to deal with some reality like having too many boats, perhaps a member docks his boat bow forward
into the slip, you know the ugly facts of life we really don't want to talk about too often (and now is such a case).

We all know Mike has done a magnificient job on his Lancer 23. In fact he has outpaced me so far he's really
making me look bad. I can get over that but now I have discovered just HOW he has done it, and it is UNFAIR.

I'm not sure just how to deal with this issue either and I am going to have to rely on the membership here for
help, morale support, counciling, and then maybe I can suck it up, deal with it, and get back to work on my own project.

All of you guys who have done your own Lancer or Commander restoration projects you are to be congratulated.
Mike on the other hand is too, but he has used a technique that we have never seen before here (or anywhere else
for that matter). It is shocking.

The Chris Craft Commander Forum, Inc. has recently received a photograph that......
upon closer examination, holds the KEY to the speed at which Mike has been able to work.
It is not a pretty sight.

Beware, This is for adult viewers only.......................................

OMG, the guy cloned his father-in-law!
