Hey everyone, my name is Scott Brown.  I am just shy of 40  :o (when did that happen), I am a transplant to central MN, originally from a small town in SW MO and lived in Tulsa from 01 until December 31 of 2014 when we moved to MN (moving to MN in the winter is NOT a good idea btw).  I grew up on a small farm, hunting and fishing in the fields and ponds I could walk to.  Since moving to MN I have rekindled that love of hunting and fishing with my amazing wife encouraging me the entire time (anything to get me out of her hair lol) I have never owned or even driven a boat, but hopefully the weather holds and I can pick up my first boat in a few days, a 1979 HPV 165.  I have a 7 YO son that can't stop talking about the boat and how many fish we're going to catch now.  Thanks for everything so far.

Glastron CV 16' with 135 Evinrude - $1300

It's a 74' Glastron CVX 16 that runs great! I think it was originally plum crazy purple gel coat, but somebody painted it just plain purple, probably when it started to could use another coat. It has a new battery. The engine runs good it's a four cylinder 135 Evinrude. I just changed the plugs. The trailer works, lights work, got a title and registration for it. It has a new axle, hubs....
The Glastron CVX 16 is the 007 boat in a James Bond movie. The interior is pretty plain. I have a set of seats and it has carpet. I would include some dock bumpers, life jackets, battery, tow tower, and some other boating related stuff.

Thanks for the warm welcome!  Hopefully this beautiful weather we're having continues and Ill be able to pick up my boat this friday.  I received my Seloc repair/service manual from for the motor today and glancing through it, I am impressed with the detailed instruction.  I have been researching the needed maintenance that should be done on any new used boat.  The seller had it "serviced" last fall but I think I am going to change the oil in the lower unit, replace the impeller,  clean and inspect the wheel bearings and maybe clean the carbs just for my own peace of mind.  After I make certain it is mechanically as it should be I am going to turn my attention the cosmetic side of things.  Wanting to try and bring back some of the original shine with a cut and buff and I have found two new windshields but holy sticker shock, 185$ a side.  Ill post some pics when the time to pick it up arrives.
