Commander Club Members are the Nicest People!

Back To Member Spotlight Index Page

This mail was sent to our webmaster Alarik von Hofsten by one of our members a few years back. It is a touching story  that deserves to be shared.


We have decided to keep our commander and wish for you to remove the advertisement from your web site. We appreciate the assistance you and the club website have offered and would also like to say, that every time we had someone contact us from the website they were very kind, courteous and informative folks.

So much so that we have decided we don't want to sell our commander and want to be more involved with the club and the folks who belong to it.

We recently contacted David Griggs though the CCCC. We sent him an email and asked if he would be willing to let us come see his Sport Cruiser and "show us the ropes" He graciously agreed and welcomed us into his home and his boat. He shared his many years of boating and Chris Craft experience with us. We would love to include an article on the CCCC website to thank him and the CCCC for allowing us into your world and showing us that there are still some caring people in this world with values and a willingness to share their knowledge and allow someone else to grow.

David allowed us to stay in his beautiful Florida guest house, (which is a boater's paradise). He agreed to show us his boat from the heart (twin 427's) to the flybridge, and even let us drive her and get a feel for how those fabulous twin screws handle.

We learned as much as he could tell us in just 2 days. He is a wealth of knowledge and even shared his mistakes so we wouldn't do the same. Dave always said, even though I made a mistake, the Chris Crafts are so well made, the boat or engine was very forgiving with no major harm. This past weekend was an absolutely fabulous opportunity and we feel it is the because of the type of people who own these boats and are involved with the CCCC.

We are looking forward to many years of boating and want to thank our special Skipper David Griggs.

So would you please consider sharing our experience on the CCCC website.
