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 Hello Haken, WELCOME ABOARD !

Hi Paul and thank you for the warm welcome! happy.gif

When you put the engine running time in that way it´s easier to understand that this boat really could be in its original condition!
The engine sound greats, both with and without water coming out the pipes...theese short vids were taken with my iPhone are when I bought the boat here in Sweden and they just started it up.
It takes a while before the cooling water hits the tail pipes but I think it sounds great!

I also think it´s a find but it wasn't for free, I can assure you that! wink.gif
My plan is to keep it as original as possible and don't change anything thats not absolutely necessary.

This boat will be a nice accent to my 69 Camaro and maybe I need a tower on it now:

Regarding the Lake Arrowhead enthusiast, you don't anybody there that could know some history regarding this specific boat? happy.gif
Best regards,
Hakan in Sweden
