Paul, That is without question, THE BEST ARTICLE I ever saw about the Chris Craft Commander. Very well done, and so much the better that is was featuring the first one of the series!

I proud to say I was a 38 Commander owner before being a Chris Craft 38 owner was "cool". That is a great article for any 38 owner to have on board. It outlines the history, development, and features of the first fiberglass cruiser from Chris Craft, and it is very well written.

Kudos!

I just recently realized, after meeting Bryan at the world's largest Chris Craft Commander Rendezvous, Huron, Ohio, that his beautiful 1964 440-powered 38 Flybridge Express was a part of this article.



Bryan mentioned this at Huron, I couldn't remember which image it was, and now after returning to Nashville and looking at the article again, I can see Byran's name as a photo credit up front and I also see the photo of 1964 Commander number 41, FXA-0041, ON TIME, of Sandusky, Ohio.

After seeing the boat in person at Huron a couple weeks ago, I agree it was a great choice for the article. It is one of the first series, during the first year of production. Interestingly, Bryan told me there was a guy at his marina who swore that Chris Craft NEVER built a 1964 38' Commander. Of course, don't try to tell Hank Bowman that, because he tested one in 1964 and wrote his famous <A HREF="http://www.network54.com/Forum/424840/m ... 1173461961
/">famous 1964 38' Commander Water Test</A> about it. Note, the first sentence says it is a 1964 boat they are testing.

Regards,

Paul

I have a very nice 1964 Crist Craft and have used it with out fault. I desire to make it look new. I have decided to have a repaint and interior redone completely. All wood striped and redone. All wood is solid and have nothing to replace. I will have to find a place to rechrome hardware. What will a entire budget estimate be? Like you did with your fine vessel?
