I understand that the '85-'90 382, 392, & 422 are the Uniflite Hull? Question #1, is that true? Therefore, question #2; are these hulls of solid (not cored) construction?
I'm seriously considering a 392.

Mike – thank you for the reply. Yes, I agree – the profile is different than the Uniflite except for the ’85 382 which looks identical to the 38’ Uniflite. But did they (Chris Craft) just change the indent? If you look at the bow, all of them sure look the same. The reason I care is that I know that the Uniflite was of solid hull construction, no coring, and that’s what I think I want so never a problem with water intrusion (I.e. like Egg Harbor has). Let’s face it, I’m looking to buy a 30+ year old boat. I have searched and searched for specifications on the 382, 392, and 422 but can’t find the answer?
The models list for the 382/392 lists the weight as 18,550. Everything I have read, including 2 spec sheets from Chris Craft and an old Uniflite manual, lists the weight as 28,000. Anybody had one on a scale?
The other Commander built on a Uniflite hull is the 482.
