              That is the same boat. I don't think there are that many left in the wild. Do you have the Bomber Logo on the side? Ours came off a while ago. I am about 3 weeks from putting her in the water, so I will post new photos then.

                Ours had it before I bought it. I can tell because before I buffed it, it was faded around where the decal used to be. I think I am gonna get some decals made up to put it back on.

                So do you have the 200hp OMC engine?

                Cant wait for the photos. You can take some before you put it in the water right?

                I would like to keep in contact, as I think these boats are very rare. How long have you had yours? Hopefully we can stir some interest on this topic and find the rest of these Bombers.

                  Re: Show your Commander Pics

                  We got the boat out the other day... started up great. The tac is out, so I need to figure out why.. but the rest is running. I will send pix once we get it out and cleaned.

                  This is out third season with the boat. We had some engine trouble when we through a rod, and with the the starter solenoid overheating. However.. I think we are pas that.

                  Speaking of cleanind.. did you just use elbow grease to buff it out?

                    I used that 3M fiberglass restorer with a high speed buffer, worked great. There were a few bad spots that I actually wet sanded with 1200 grit on a block before i buffed. I got it to look 90% better. I think I am going to go over it again this year, hopefully I can get it looking 99%.

                        I have a 1988 Bomber Commander. Does anyone out there happen to have any manuals on this boat? The previous owner added an aftermarket fuel pump that can't keep up and also made one of the fuel tanks no longer function. I'd like to return this to factory to that both tanks work. It's got the MerCruiser 5.0 Alpha One setup in it.

                            Here's my 1988 Bomber Commander... Needs a little work, but the engine is solid. The wood that the Engine mounts to is rotting. Does anybody have any ideas on replacing that section? The motor has dropped an inch due to the rotting wood that it was bolted to.

                              Very cool! Mine had a silver stripe, not the blue. No idea on the engine though. Good luck!
