Good morning, and THANK YOU for all the great resources and information!  My wife and I just purchased a 1968 Chris Craft Commander 35' with the fly bridge.  It is located on the east coast of FL, and I need to bring it to the West coast of FL.  I am going to be removing the flybridge to make transportation easier.  This boat was partially submerged in brackish water, and both of the 427's are froze.  My biggest concern is moving it out of the canal it is in, and getting it to the marina for lift out and transportation.  Is there anyone in the Palm Coast FL area that can offer advice?  Thank you for any help!  Feel free to call or text anytime! 352-535-5906

Hold on. The 1968 Commander Brochure posted here shows the height as 11'7" from the waterline to the top of the mast. Waterline to keel is listed as 35 inches.

Thank you Paul.  I have been called worse! Have a great time in the keys- hope you get time to get some lobster!!  

UPDATE!  Finally got this beautiful boat back to the house!  If you ever are in the area, the folks at Oasis Marina in St Augustine are amazing!!  Great day.


Great news Dan!  I wish you the best of luck with her!  It is a major project.  Be patient, and remember that each task will take 3 times the time and 3 times the money you thought it would... If you keep this in mind, the rewards of owning a classic Commander will multiply tenfold.
