Hello from Florida new cvx16 owner
« on: May 17, 2016, 08:33:14 AM »
purchased a glastron Carlson cvx 16 outboard here in florida about a month ago and started the resto so far I've been very fortunate and the boat needed no wood repair. Just gel coat, carpet and upholstery with some motor work as well. it has a 1980 evinrude v4 140. hope to have it on the water soon and more pics to come! Thanks for having me!

Glad your here WesMann, you will find info on every part of doing your resto here.   It takes a while to get a handle on all the info in here, so just ask and someone here will point you to the answer or a thread with details, pictures, and step by step DYI.
