Hi Nick..
AWESOME GT !
There must be a story on how you got it..
How bigs your Merc ?
You've come to the right place for friends.
Keep an eye on the board for get together in the summer and winter.
Minaqua is a suburb of Milwaukee ?

I've watched quite a few of these CVX18's come and go over the last few years on ebay, craigslist and boat trader. I think you did real good on that boat, better than I did on mine!

Hi, I'm new to this site, hang out over at  carlsonspeed quite a bit. I farm in so. central MN, but spend most weekends no. of Alex on Lake Miltona in summer. The boat is an '84 CVX18 that was a 350/260,swapped it out for a built 406 sbc in front of an Alpha SS drive. Redid floor and interior 2 years ago over winter.

Sweet boat. I love what you have done to the motor. The diamond plate looks real clean in there too. A little bit of customization but still looks fairly original. Great Job!!!

Hope you can make it to the annual meet this year so we can see it in person.



Is it just me or have CVX18's all of a sudden become very popular?????

Jeff, make your let us know what happened with the one you looked at in Pelican lake!

Ya, that post was from summer of '07, I bumped the nitrous pills up to 180 hp, but never got a chance to make a full pass this year due to low fuel pressure. I think I was up to 88 or so if I recall.

Hi Brian,

I just found this site and am very excited to know that there is a group like this in Minnesota and Wisconsin! I have been an avid canoe paddler my whole life but loved water skiing in high school. It's been a whole lot of years since then but I finally broke down a couple of years ago and purchased a 1973 Glastron Bayflite V174 off of Craigslist. My wife and I have welcomed 2, soon to be 3 sons into the world in the last few years so I hate to say that I've only taken it out a handful of times, but can't wait to join this community out on the water some time. Unfortunately I'm filming (I'm an independent film-maker as well as boat enthusiast) or I'd drive the family down to the big Red Wing event!

All the best!

Hey there!  Welcome to the forum!  Too bad we missed you the other day.  We went from Ft. Snelling to Prescott and spent a good 6-7 hours on the water.  Keep in touch with us, and we will get together soon!

We need to see some pictures of your new CV-16.  Is your CV a brown one with a new interior?

No, I didn't get that one. I drove all the way to Sioux Fall to look at a 78. That was another disappointment.On the way home my girl friend call about one in Dundas. Not perfect but way nicer than the other two I looked at.

The one in Dundas looked really nice.  In fact, it was for sale at the same time I was selling mine.  I was nervous that it was on the market at the same time since it really looked better than mine.  I was confident in the mechanics on my old rig, but I know that one you got looked pretty good!

I'm excited to see more of your boat!  Jason and I have owned that same setup, (and he still does) so if you need any help with anything, just let us know!

Looks great! I have to admit someone painted the woodgrain black on your boat and it turned out good! I like it. Hope to see you on the water soon!

I feel silly...  I didn't see your picture of the CV until this morning.  I would have known it wasn't my old one that way.  Anyway, be careful with that tow strap over the sides.  Usually there are some stainless loops on the transom that work really well with a small ratchet strap.

How does it run?

Yeah... Its painted black and it does look pretty good from about 10 or 20 feet. The wood grain decals were crack real bad. Do you have any idea where I can find new decals?

hmmm, no idea. Maybe someone else will chime in. Or try some local vinyl printing shops. You might be able to find something close.
