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 !

(In case anyone is wondering, this is where Don Hancock found his 31 Express Flybridge, that he installed a pair of big block GM motors. "DUCK TALES"

Here is what CAN BE DONE.....................with a boat like this one !

December 2 2010, 9:52 AM 

Anyone pondering this particular boat, or one like it, check out the link below to see just what can be done for pennies on the dollar when compared to something new with equal performance and size.

Interesting that this free boat is in the same immediate neighborhood in CT, that Don Hancock found his 31' Flybridge Express, MARIANNE, which was TOTALLY restored and renamed "DUCKTALES"

On Don's restoration (now proudly owned by Bob Koss, Michigan, Lake Huron side) he removed the old engines.
On this free boat the old engines are already gone so you won't have that problem.

This is what CAN BE DONE...............................................................

Yes indeed, Don's project is proudly showcased in the 31' Commander Chapter of
"The Legacy of the Fiberglass Chris Craft Commander" (book) and rightly so!

I posted this note about the FREE BOAT becuase the initial title post didn't draw attention to that.
