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.

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".

I am new to boat restoration and was wondering the consensus on using a repaired prop. Should I just get a new one or am I ok using this? I suspect it may be the original.

Original prop for that boat with a 327-F was 13x12 RH

I'm not sure they used a Nibral prop so it may not be original but in any case I would use it and see how it works. If you are not satisfied with it then keep it as a spare. Also, I would go ahead and pick up a spare on Ebay anyhow, the 13x12 RH with 1-inch shaft shows up every now and then. I may have a couple here if you need em happy.gif

Mine has a 283 flywheel fwd in it. Not sure if that makes a difference whether they used a nibral or not. I just thought it may be the original due to the fact that it said Chris craft. Thanks for the info, as always. Your skiff restoration thread has been a priceless source of info along the way.
