Welcome Paul
Do you run on the Chippewa, we went to Eau Claire to pick up a trailer last month, and as we were going over the Chippewa I wondered if it was good boating.
We spend almost all of our water time on the rivers here in the Twin Cities, but always looking for a great place to go boating with cool people

Welcome. I'd also be curious to hear if you boat the Chippewa.

Figured I've been around here for a little bit since acquiring our 1st boat last fall and now that the family are hooked on boating don't see myself going anywhere in the near future.

I'm Andy I'm 35 years old and we are based out of Alberta Canada , this is our 1st season as a new boating family.  We have a 1983 Glastron SSV-151 with an 82' Evinrude 90HP out back.   I'm a back yard mechanic who likes & enjoys wrenching in my spare time and workong on my own projects as much as possible.  Other activities we enjoy are Jeeping although the boat like has taken over and out trail jeep is currently sitting idle.  We have 3 jeeps  And currently looking for another Grand Cherokee to replace our 2000 grand Cherokee so we can turn it into a family off road vehicle as the TJ is a little small to haul the whole family around with.

Other than Jeeping and our new found boating hobby.   We enjoy the out doors greatly weather it be spear fishing, or fishing with a rod and reel, Camping, hiking and of course caving and tracking down old abandoned mines and adits in the British Columbia mountains.  We also enjoy snowboarding and spend most of our winters in the mountains of Banff Alberta shredding up the slops.


I have bitter sweet feelings about winter that will be fast approaching.  Will be the end of boating season but over the winter I hope to find the time to redo the interior of our Glastron SSV-151.  Mainly new fabric and have been trying with the idea of changing the seat layout into an L shaped bench with a driver seat.  Have Also been toying with the idea of upgrading our engine to a different powerhead found a company out of Denver Colorado that offers Evinrude V4 powerheads with higher horsepower ratings.

 Still have a good 2 months of boating weather so still trying to figure out what the past is for winter wrenching this year.

Look forward to learning from everyone off this forum and maybe one day we will be in a better position to do some traveling and maybe make it out one year for a meet.

Hi everyone,
New here and am looking for info on how to identify what Glaspar we have. From all my searching online I still cant find pics of any Glaspar's with the 3rd row bench seat.
Nor can I find any Data Plate on the boat. Can anyone tell me where to find the data plate and if this was a popular boat. Im new here and will post pics of our boat as soon as I can get them on.
Mike
