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".

2012 Raceboat Regatta

The Chris Craft Commander Forum, Inc., knows a lot of people at this event, including some of the ones that appear
on the official poster this year.

In addition we have several members of THE FORUM who have their Commanders in the vicinity.

In any case, Clayton and the neighboring Alexandria Bay are wonderful little walking towns, this is a huge event every
two years. As far as restaurant recommendations, I would recommend Foxys Restaurant, you won't find it downtown in the
"tourist trap" zone, it is off the beaten path and the locals keep it going. Great steaks and very good prices on adult
beverages too, the food and service is MUCH BETTER than you will find on the tourist trap strip, the voice of experience here.
Look at this map to find the secret location ! Also look up and down the shore line between Clayton and Alexandria Bay.

Now for the boats.................I have perhaps hundreds of photos of the Race Boat events here on The Forum, and all I can
tell you is if you have never been to this location for one of these events, you are really missing out, so check that schedule!



Here is a photo I took 8 years ago
