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".

Attention to detail

September 18 2017, 6:29 PM 

Attention to detail up front like that, and in fact on the WHOLE job you are doing, really pays off. Much of your quality work is out of sight and just done to a high standard because that's the way you do things. Anything in front of your face, or the passenger's face, is about as high a visibility item as it gets on a boat, and it will say a LOT every time you take the boat out (even if you go by yourself, you'll have the satisfaction of seeing your quality work).

From time to time I try to do quality work, and sometimes I do, however, it's never complete or enough to make a finished product because there seems to always be SOMETHING not done. Anyone who can finish a total project has my great respect, and heck there are a lot of examples around here to look at, including yours. happy.gif

regards,
Paul

Thank you Paul,

That made me feel so good hearing you say that, I always do my best, but sometimes I get so fixated on one thing and wont stop till it is as good as it can get, thats why its been 4 years restoring this boat, I keep going back over what I did already because while doing a certain part on the boat I come up with a revised Idea and Boom i just whent backward again, tell you the truth I enjoy it, not the sanding part thu, LOL I still have to sand/fair the awlgrip high build primer on the hull then hit it with 545 primer sand once again then paint, just waiting for the weather to cool before doing it, south Florida is very hot this month
