Let's get to know each other...
« on: April 11, 2008, 09:54:29 PM »
I've been contemplating how we can get to know each other by more than a screen name.  The profile is sometimes hard to get it to list the information that you want.

So...  Why not make a post here about who you are, where you are from, the boats that you own, etc.

Then when you post elsewhere onthe board, we can use this as a referance to who we are talking to.

Who knows, I'm the type of guy that likes to get to know people.  Let's see what happens.

Thanks for helping me build this site...  It's been a lot of fun!

Hi All,
I'm Jim,
I have an old 1968 V174 - with a merc 120 I/O.
I purchased it four years ago cause it reminded me of the boats we had growing up in Mound, MN
We try to spend as much time on Minnetonka as weather permits.
My wife Kelly loves to throw anchor or sight see the shore lines. My two teenage girls want to "go fast" or spend the day on the tube.

Hello,

I am Jason.

I have grown up around boats my entire life. Now living in St. Paul (only for 1 more week though) I have my Glastron and love getting out on the water as much as possible. There is no better feeling then cruising down a glass like river at 45 mph with the sunshine on your head and the wind in your face.

Hi There:
Brad here.
I live in beautiful Kelowna B.C. Canada
I grew up around Glastron/Carlsons as my mentor, the father of my girlfriend through highschool,  owned the largest dealership in Western Canada.
 Our lake is approx 80 miles by five miles and eventhough we're in Canada we get five or six good months of boating in a year. The Okanagan Valley is located north of Omak Washington and  actually referred to as Canada's Hawaii as we often see temperatures over a 100 degrees in the summer. Our climate is semi-arid (almost desert).
Presently I own a blue 1979 CV23 sterndrive. I'm looking for a project CVX20 as I managed to aquire a rather old but still functioning twin turbo set up for a 460 Ford that actually came out of a CVX23 jet. If anyone hears of a hull and drive, or just hull, in the Pacific northwest give me shout at cv23@telus.net

Welcome Gary!  Nice to hear from you.  That's a great looking boat!  What kind of power plant does that have?  :)

Hello everyone.  My name is Brian.  I live in West Bend, Wisconsin which is about 25 miles north of Milwaukee.  I own a 1977 Glastron Carlson CVX 16 Deluxe with a 1977 Mercury 1150.  I purchased the boat in 1982 from the original owner in St Paul, Minnesota.  The boat has performed well over the years.  I did have some transom rot a few years ago, but I found a fiberglass repairman in my area that did an excellent job replacing the transom at a reasonable cost.  We have many lakes and rivers in my area and I think I have boated almost all of them.  I figure I have trailered my boat over 35,000 miles on the original 1977 Shorelander trailer.  My favorite places to go boating include the Fox River from Oshkosh to New London; Lake Winnebago; Beaver Dam Lake; the Milwaukee River through downtown Milwaukee; Lake Michigan (on those rare occasions when it is calm); and various lakes around Eagle River, Wisconsin.  I am looking forward to the get-together in August at Lake City, MN.

Hi all,

I had been looking for 14 months for a Intimidator with no luck checking every Internet site there was and the local 4 state papers on line. Luck would have it one poped up just 8 miles away on Craigs list!!! listed at 9 a.m. and I called at 10:30..first caller lucky enogh and baught it. I'm the third owner and have all doc. of the boat including the Color sales Brochure off the sales room floor.

I grew up on a  77 cv177 and it was a great boat, For me it's the lines these old beauty's have. I live 18 miles N. of Stillwater and am always looking for some new people to boats to meet.

That Boat can't be that old?

Hi there!

My name is Nick.  My wife and I live in Hudson and have a classic glastron.  We'd love to get to know more people in the area - we've lived here for 2 1/2 years but hardly know anyone.  If I knew how, I would post some pics of our GT-140.  Thanks!

Nick

Hi Nick.

First of all, to post pics, click on "additional options" then "browse" to the location of te picture you want to post. Keep in mind it needs to be fairly small (less then 500K)

I also live in Hudson. Lived here for all of 5 months now and love it. We live near the south end of willow river state park. Would love to catch up with you sometime on the river. There is also a good size lake just north of Hudson I have been dying to check out. Bass Lake I think it's called. My wife and I have a green 1974 Glastron Carlson CV16SS.

Welcome to the site Nick,
I have a 1968 V174 that ends up on Lake Minnetonka every chance we get.
My wife Kelly & I would love to show you or anyone else around Minnetonka.

What a unique little rig!  I like it alot.  Has anyone had a chance to meet Nick?  Do we have a phone #?  I hate to have a fellow Glastron Owner so close without taking care of them!

All:
Andy from Southern California.  Hope to explore the Minnesota lakes some day. Pictures of your area make it out to be a boaters paradise.

Thanks for letting me look in!

PS: Glastron Scott. How fast are you running with that 150 on the 16. I'm not happy with my 150 set up and am thinking about going back to a 115.
