PHOTO OF THE DAY EDITORIAL:
This, my friends, is a documentation of a day of excitement, and the beginning of another legacy of family fun and adventure, Chris-Craft Commander style. This photo was sent in by new Commander owner, Michael Shoemaker, and it reminds me of the time Janet and I were taking similar photos of our own 38 Commander,TRADITION, shortly after we acquired it. The first thing we did was haul out several hundred pounds of junk left by the previous owner. Then we embarked on many years of fun ownership along with some learning curve and some maintenance issues too, but getting a Commander was a rich addition to our lives.
I remember the first time I ever saw a 38 Commander. We owned a 35-foot wood Chris-Craft Sea Skiff at the time, and I saw the bow sticking out of a tin shed marina on Old Hickory Lake, here in Tennessee. I was drawn to the boat and upon seeing it closer I was pretty astounded. The style, details around the scuppers, hardware, overall shape of the boat, texture in gelcoat for non-slip surfaces, and of course that pointed transom and bow badge too, all made a huge impression on me and I knew right then I had to have one. A few years later we did, and the rest is history.
This boat, however, looks to be in much better condition that ours was at the time, so Mike you got yourself a good one and we wish you all the best with this fabulous iconic memory-maker from Chris-Craft. The engines on these boats are premium grade equipment and can serve many years into the future with responsible ownership and good care. The hulls are literally bullet-proof and known for strength and longevity. You will be getting looks, nods, rubbernecking and compliments every time you take this fine boat out. We welcome you aboard the Chris-Craft Commander community here and compliment your good taste in boats. For more photos of this new acquisition, check out the following link.
A new Commander acquisition, and a new chapter in family fun and memories !!
