Spring Is Coming!! sooner or later!! I have a 62' Cruisers Inc. 1302 Commander.
That would be a lot of fun on the lakes! It is 18 ft, with a 100hp Interceptor inline 6 cyl.
I rescued it from a machine shed, where it had been sitting since the early 80's. It was covered
with the original travel cover keeping it from the elements. The exterior needed some TLC,
sanding, puttying of screw heads, primer and paint. 3 coats of primer. 3 coats of paint and
2 coats of Copper bottom paint. The interior upholstery is all original and in great shape! All
Woodwork was in great condition. Just needed a fresh coat of spar varnish. The motor needed
a bit more. The crank needed to be turned. It had a spun rod bearing on the # 1 cylinder.
It was taken down .010 and all new bearings, Rods and mains were installed. The #1 rod was
also replaced with a new one. I was reassembled, lifters adjusted and tuned up. It currently has
about 1/2 hr. on the motor! Runs great! The outdrive is a Eaton. It was disassembled and checked
for issues. All gears and bearings look great and fit well. New seals and gaskets were installed.
A new CV Boot was also installed. All lights on board work. There is a great air horn!!
This Beauty also comes with all of the original Bimini top, zip in side windows and full camper
covers!! these are in fantastic shape! They are constructed of a very heavy duty Vinyl with a cloth
backing. There are very pliable and soft, as they were when new!
Also there is the original trailer! It was sanded down, primed and painted its original colors.
All operational, Winch, Lights, tilt winch, new tires and rims and new jack.
This is a remarkable Craft that will give many hours of enjoyment for the wooden Boat enthusiasts!
