Hey guys and gals, thought I'd introduce myself.. I'm Cole, and I'm addicted to Glastrons. My father has owned a few now, and I thought it was time I purchase my own. I just picked up my 1973 CV-19 and I absolutely love it. I'm a mechanic by trade and work on a little bit of everything, but boats and especially jet boats are new to me. Can't wait to get out on the water this summer and meet some of you guys and share the passion for classic boats!

Yes sir, launched in Prescott and headed to Kinni and back. Quick rip just wanted to get a feel for it and figure out what needs to be fixed. Been sitting for a couple years now.

On Facebook, it looks like you just got a CVX20 Jet ?
Or is it Mike Barnes that got it ?

That's my dad, he's had a few and just scored on that '77 all original CVX20, then I got the itch and Tom gave me the opportunity to pick up this 19!
