Hello fellow Commander folks,

I recently purchased a 1966 Commander 38 Sedan in Ohio, which will be sitting up there over the winter.  In April, I will be moving her to Washington, DC.  While she is hibernating, I am working on getting her Coast Guard documented and changing the name/hailing port.  I was hoping that someone might know the transom measurements from the lower rub rail to the top & the width.  I know the beam is 13', but I think it may taper down at the transom.

If anyone has this info, I would appreciate it so I can get my lettering on order.  Being 350 miles away limits my interaction with her until next year.

Thanks and I am happy to be a CCC owner!

Rob

Nice commander and what is that monster in the next slip to port?

Rob,

From the swim platform to the top corner of the fiberglass is 37 inches and from corner to corner the width is 140 inches.  The letters are 10 x 84 inches.  Does not include Nashville, only My Three Blondes.

Chris

Thanks a lot, Chris!  Your lettering has the same dimensions as the ones that I ordered for Southern Cross.  Very nice looking Commander!

Thanks for the info, Sam.

Here's a photo of Dick Morland's Patty Wagon after she made the move to DC. The letters are 12" high and 89" long. The hailing port letters are 4" tall.  BTW, you'll need to get a Documented Vessel Sticker from DC Harbor Police.  I think they're $35 a year.

Thanks Sam, I plan to keep mine at the James Creek Marina, located on the Potomac River where it meets the Washington Channel and the Anacostia River.  I am new to boating in this area as I recently moved to the District from San Francisco.  This will be a very different type of boating compared to the Bay Area, but I am looking forward to exploring.  Any recommended anchorages or sweet spots for swinging on the hook would be appreciated!

Rob, I’ll have to check. I can also check my order for graphics. By the way, our 38 Sedan is at Mt. Vernon Yacht Club. I was the Commodore of District Yacht Club in DC until we moved the boat down river a bit. Where are you planning on keeping yours?
