I don’t really want to sell it, I don’t have to sell it but I have the chance to purchase a mint, all original, CVX 20 and I won’t sell my Scimitar so I’m going to probe the marketplace for a OC-type like me who might want this Beauty!

I bought the boat from the second owner (original owner owned the boat for a bit over a year from new); a very low use (previous owner estimated that it had less than 120 hours on it and said this of his friend, the original owner, “he had built the motor up, cam and rollers shortly after he bought the boat from the local Glastron dealer”) and I probably have put 15 hours on it.

I had the boat transported (off-the-road) to California; when the boat went thru the State boarder inspection the State-employed Buffoon / Inspector insisted on seeing the “bilge” and before the transport driver knew it this 290 Lb Gorilla had cut the shrink-wrap and climbed up onto the engine cover damaging a near perfect all original boat (fractured the engine cover nearly all the way across -at the hinge). After a massive search for metal flake a really gifted “glass man” hand blended the flake to a perfect match, built up the cover (to make it more ridged), ground down the surface to the base color and re-shot the entire rear section of the boat to insure a perfect blending of both the gel-coat and the metal flake.

The trailer was disassembled and stripped. New wheel bearings, alloy wheels and tires, new lumber (redwood for the bunks and marine plywood for the steps) hardware and two new custom “tapered” fenders installed then painted (in Imron) and decaled to original – the only difference being that the original trailer decal said “GLASTRON” and the new one’s I had made state “GLASTRON-CARLSON”.

The original distributer had problems so it was replaced with a new HEI unit.
The original carburetor had been rebuilt by the previous owner however it was not functioning correctly; a new (not rebuilt) unit was installed.
The original “MR” series drive had failed; I elected to replace it with a new Alpha 1 unit.
Three of the original gauges were not working and finding suitable OEM replacements was not possible; all gauges were replaced, all but the tach and speedo fit into the original openings, modifications were required (to the original panel) to fit the larger diameter tach and speedo.
The upholstery required some stitching and panel replacement; I had upholstery made-to-match the original.  After this I was able to find a full-roll of material that retains the “marbling” look of the original, enough to redo the entire boat at some point and only if the existing were to be damaged. The upholstery, as it is, is exceptional. The carpet appears to be the original. The stern, floor and stringers are all solid. The boat has always been stored indoors.
The top and hull finishes are also exceptional. There are two very fine (so fine I can’t photograph them and only visible in soft light) spiders - one on each side of the boat @ the gunwale – approx. 18-20” from the trailing edge of the windshield frame.
Performance: The engine sounds “hearty” at idle! I’m not prone to firewalling the boat but I can tell you that acceleration (love the sound of the secondary’s) once the boat plains-out is a head-snapper and the top-end is somewhere beyond 68.5 mph (the last gps reading I was able to read before my skin color started to change!) I figure there’s another 4-7 mph left in it but I haven’t got the nerve to find out.

The Boat looks great in the pictures; it looks better in person and draws attention were ever I’ve taken it. I know that an $18k price tag may seem extreme and though well under what I’ve got tied up in it for what the boat represents someone may find it reasonable particularly if they were to go thru the expense of reproducing a CVX 18 of this quality and originality.

If you’ve a serious interest or know of someone who might feel free to PM me and we’ll exchange phone numbers. Curtis

One Owner / Like New / Glastron Carlson CSS-16 - $7200 (Orono
https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/hnp/boa/d/one-owner-like-new-glastron/6328568629.html

Glastron Carlson CSS-16 Speed Boat. Showroom condition, just like it came off of showroom floor. Just don't use it. Very low hours, WELL MAINTAINED, always stored inside, always changed oil every year and winterized. Got into fishing with the boys, they are not into water skiing or tubing. I love the boat and hate to see it go! Every time I would take it out, people would come over and admire it. It is a Great boat for water skiing, tubing, trick ski, and bare foot or just cruising around on the lake. There is a Johnson 120hp and trailer that comes with the boat. Cover, transom jack, tie down straps.

60 HP 4-Cycle 2013 Mercury with FREE BOAT - $6250 (FREMONT
https://grandrapids.craigslist.org/boa/d/60-hp-4-cycle-2013-mercury/6353543707.html

Great Merc outboard. Paid $7850. Engine has about 20 hrs on it mainly putting around a small lake and some tubing.
The boat is a 1964-5 Glastron Aqua with new seats this year and a new windshield - custom made to match original.
I was going to refurb the boat but just no time.

Engine like new...the boat has great potential. Stored inside for all the 7 years I have owned it. It came with a toasted old Johnson engine and rotted seats. Re-carpeted, added good bilge, real cover added, and nice seats along with an expensive custom - original matching windshield (from Glastron custom shop near detroit).
This is a steal and price will go up in the Spring.  PS Comes with trailer
