And what a magnificent show she put on!

Today (well tomorrow actually) marks the end of my Chris Craft Commander days. I've just drawn up the bill of sale and forwarded it to the new owner. 

After having her on the market for a few months, I accepted an offer on her today. We will begin looking for a live aboard sized boat in the next few weeks. 

I've had a great time with this boat and I'm very sad to have to let her go. Fortunately the new owner is an older (than me) gentleman who can appreciate her classic lines, has a son who's a mechanic, and has promised to pick up where I left off and take care of her. 

This forum and community has been significantly (if not solely) responsible for my success with this vessel over the last year. Had it not been for your time, effort, responses, and welcoming nature I'm fairly certain I would have failed. I cannot thank you enough for allowing me in, and putting up with my relentless inquiries. The engine maintenance education I gained from you all is priceless, and something that I will always be grateful for. 

I wish all of you the best in your adventures! Who knows, maybe i'll end up with one of the big CC's!

Thats the satisfaction of owning a classic Commander. Every time we leave the dock people are always giving us a thumbs up or just stopping by to ask what year is that boat? Then proceed to tell a story of their childhood memories of a family member that had a similar Chris Craft.  We took some good friends out for the first time late yesterday afternoon after the storms passed. Enjoyed a sunset and a nice dinner on the boat. Life is Good!
