In 2016, Chris Craft is joining with Italian boat builder Austin Parker to re-release the Commander line. While the roll-out has sparked both positive and negative comments, many Commander owners have often looked at the distinct styling, classic lines, and obvious brute strength of our boats and wondered…
“How would Dick Avery do that today?”
In 2002, Greg Gajcak, looked at his 1972 Chris Craft 35’ Commander Express and began laying out just such a vision. While the finished product is one of awe, the key to the story is in the journey.
Membership Chair Matt Cowles tells the story about how Greg and Julie Gajcak ended up making one of the most thorough Commander refits to date.
And for those of you who think the refit is finished, hold your judgement. Reading the list of 2016 upgrades looks like a full refit to most!
