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 Re: Okay guys.........................here are MORE PHOTOS .................... !!!

Would you believe all of the previous photos were taken with an iPhone?


These were taken from a nice small digital camera.

And yes, the guy with the hat did jump aboard, and that was not good for the finish on the boat nor was it safe at all to do so. No legs in the propeller this time, ahh lucked out again.

The chase is on.........actually it wasn't a chase at all. This is just one U22 following another. Thanks again to Captain Bill Robbins for the nice ride. This one is powered (repowered actually) with a nifty period correct 283. Although the 283 was not an option on this boat, it is an old enough and totally respected Chris-Craft engine to be in keeping with the character and provenance of this model of Chris Craft. Nice running big runabout !! This U22 is a 1950 model, and the small block Chevy motor was first used in CC boats in 1959 happy.gif
