We bought Sea Eagle from Thomas at Arrowhead last June. You may know it from 4th of July's past as the "King Cracker" boat! It's been on the lake for a long time. It's a neat boat, but needs some TLC. We'd love to connect this summer. We live in Kansas City, so come every weekend we can, working around our kids' schedules. We'll start coming in April to get everything ship shape for the season.

Hi Mike,
We dock at Cherokee. Our boat, Sea Eagle was docked at Arrowhead for a short time. We are looking to connect with Commander owners on the lake to share resources, ideas, and good folks who have done any work on your boat. Looking forward to the boating season!

Hey Mike

Last night I found the original paperwork from the purchose of the boat along with the Hull ID which is FDA-31-0070T sold out of the Hundley Boat Co. in Lake Dallas, TX. I've got a open call out on the forum to see if this boat is still alive and who owns it.

Hey Mike,

Do you happen to know the history of your boat? I think my family might be the 1st owners of your boat. The hull ID I think matches up. We bought the boat brand new from Hundley Chris Craft in Lake Dallas, TX.

Hi Mike:

I'm sure others will be signing up soon.  Did you ever check out the info I last sent about a possible replacement for your windshield hardware?
