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 Friends of Dr. Namken - stand by for news!

Paul, Kevin, and All:
Yes, Kevin came by and inspected my work. We had a good time visiing about all things Chris Craft and the forum. We also settled several of the world problems. If only...

Actually, I've had this boat for a while, just under wraps at the marina. It is a lancer with the prop tunnel drive and the engine runs great. We took it out last fall when I got it, and Rich Duane had the pleasure of taking it around the point. Lucky for us, he did the job because there was a leak in one of the exhaust pipes causing a lot of condesation and the subsequent engine mal-performance. None the less, he got it done, we got loaded and the rest is history.

Yes, I have the boat camoflaged in white shrink wrap like some of the others. Heh, heh.

We had a great time visiting and talking about gas prices, ethenol, slip rentals and strategies for dealing with all this, a kind of mini-rondevous. I hope others get to visit and listen to others in similar arenas where we can talk boats this summer. It is a great activity for reenforcing our boatitus disease. This forum facilitates this kind of exchange for trading information and having fun!
Thanks, Paul,
