I think it's a CVX-18.

Hmm...I just don't think that's a Carlson...there's too much bottom hull out of the water.  70's Glastron-Carlson's just aren't that tall.

Yup, Bee Gees album sleeve from Spirit Having Flown, very successful album, three singles went to number one, 16 million copies sold, their only number one album in the UK.

It's either a CVX-16 or 18 but Andy Gibb having his knees at the top of the windshield edge doesn't make sense to me for either model.

I think Rich is right, the ends of the windshield are the wrong shape for a 18 or a 16, they are the right shape for a CVZ.

Only if they took off the front wrap around bow rails.

You can also clearly see that its missing the plexiglass on the the windshield sides that a CVZ would have...

From a cursory review, and as previously stated, there are no front rails, but it does have a G/C hull look.  That's my best guess as it has been proven that staring at anything related to Bee Gee's can cause irreparable retinal damage.
