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 !

Another rare classic SAVED from destruction

Response to pix, FINALLY

Boats that are set aside seem to sometimes just get lost in a time warp and the years just flip by one at a time very quickly. Then all of a sudden, someone comes around and pulls the trigger on a SAVE or maybe the final trip to destruction. This boat is lucky, because it has by chance encountgered a classic soul who appreciates a classic soul in a boat. If it could be jumping for joy on its own it would be doing so now, but it will wait patiently until it can jump for joy with Chris at the helm and six cylinders of Buick torque pushing.

Hey Chris LOOK at that deep-V too, sheesh that boat has offshore racer in its blood. How about the motor, is it a keeper, a repair, a runner or a replacement awaiting? The boat looks all there, and a good scrub job may produce remarkable results. I trust seats are gone. Where is the fuel tank in one of these?

Also do you know any history of the boat. Where has it been sleeping all these years, why was it put up in the first place, etc. Also, congrats for figuring out the photo quiz, whatever it was you beat it.

best,

Paul
