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".

Sea Skiff listed on E-Bay today

Response to Last call for my skiff

Hello to all; I finally got my nerve up and put the skiff on E-Bay today. It actually has history there as that is where I found it listed by Larry Sullivan, the previous owner. It was sitting in a municipal slip in the Grosse Point Woods waterfront park where Larry was using it for fishing on Lake St. Clair. The bottom of this boat has never been painted but it was caked with Zebra Mussels when I got it from Larry. That was it's first and 1 only 2 stops at a marine service store since I've had it, I took it to Performance Marine in Port Huron and they cleaned the Zebras off it. After I was almost done with the restoration it went to Madonia's Custom Boat Tops for canvas. The rest of what has been done since was done by me or the services I sent parts to. I have no delusions of ever recovering what I paid for it but the enjoyment and memories along with the friends I've made here are priceless far beyond any sunk cost. If it sells I will move on to another project. I will keep close tabs on the fun here no matter what. I think it's the greatest website for boaters I've ever seen.
