This is a listing of the special Photos of the Day we've had as a feature spot on the forum. These photos are TOO GOOD TO PUT AWAY, so we're starting this feature page, sort of an extension of the Commander Hall of Fame! The write-up that accompanied the photo is also listed, along with a direct link back to the thread. This is sure to become a real hit in the future, as we continue to add really special photos!

Enjoy!

The following four images were posted during the week of June 19, 2006 to honor the recent loss of Warren Pateman, from Australia, who embodied the best of integrity, Aussie spirit, and boating in general.

A celebration for a productive and engaging life, but sadness that it was cut so short. Warren Pateman not only set an example of how to work on a magnificent boat reconstruction, he also set high standards for integrity. He will be greatly missed.
Here is a tribute to Warren, and links to over 100 photographs of his incredible Chris Craft Commander project.

A celebration for a productive and engaging life, but sadness that it was cut so short. Warren Pateman not only set an example of how to work on a magnificent boat reconstruction, he also set high standards for integrity. He will be greatly missed.
Here is a tribute to Warren, and links to over 100 photographs of his incredible Chris Craft Commander project.

The write-up that accompanied the photo is also listed, along with a direct link back to the thread. This is sure to become a real hit in the future, as we continue to add really special photos!

The following four images were posted during the week of June 19, 2006 to honor the recent loss of Warren Pateman, from Australia, who embodied the best of integrity, Aussie spirit, and boating in general.

A celebration for a productive and engaging life, but sadness that it was cut so short. Warren Pateman not only set an example of how to work on a magnificent boat reconstruction, he also set high standards for integrity. He will be greatly missed.
Here is a tribute to Warren, and links to over 100 photographs of his incredible Chris Craft Commander project.

The following four images were posted during the week of June 19, 2006 to honor the recent loss of Warren Pateman, from Australia, who embodied the best of integrity, Aussie spirit, and boating in general.

A celebration for a productive and engaging life, but sadness that it was cut so short. Warren Pateman not only set an example of how to work on a magnificent boat reconstruction, he also set high standards for integrity. He will be greatly missed.
Here is a tribute to Warren, and links to over 100 photographs of his incredible Chris Craft Commander project.

This is a listing of the special Photos of the Day we've had as a feature spot on the forum. These photos are TOO GOOD TO PUT AWAY, so we're starting this feature page, sort of an extension of the Commander Hall of Fame! The write-up that accompanied the photo is also listed, along with a direct link back to the thread. This is sure to become a real hit in the future, as we continue to add really special photos!

Enjoy!
