Bring back some lost Glastron data
« on: December 03, 2013, 08:20:48 AM »
Hey guys, we would like to bring back some of the data that was lost back when the fire hit the Glastron factory years ago. We are trying to decode the hin# of the Carlsons. It would be very nice of you if you could send me your hin# + facts like what kind of metalflake and so on. Maybe we can figure out how many boats have approximately been built back then. You either answer right here, or send me a message with those details. Looking forward to a great participation of you guys. There have been many spread topics on this, maybe we can bring them all together. Cheers Aaron

I sent Art & John Carlson an email asking if they remember anything about how the HIN numbers were organized.  I'll let you know if I hear anything.

Great guys! Thanks!
Doug, we used to have a pretty nice registry over on the old CGOA page. It somehow got lost when the virus shut down the forum a few years though.
Too bad as it contained many names info.

Some good info on HIN's
http://nasbla.org/files/public/Enf%20&%20Training/NASBLA%20HIN%20comp.pdf

Looks like you are going to have to only look at the serial number part of it. Hopefully it did not just start at 0 and there are some meanings to those numbers.
ex: GLA38788M75D
ex: CN005504C686

I had to edit my CV16 after seeing everyone else's Carlson mine did not make since. Went out and looked at boat. It was GCV not GLA. Turns out my Registration card is wrong!

You bet, I do have a copy of the forum registry file from 'back then'.  Contains 5330 member records.  Keep in mind its not a few years old.... its many, many years out-dated now ('01 thru '06).  

Data fields in this file are as follows:

Date Recorded
First Name
Last Name

Year
Model
City
State
Country
E-mail

I'm not willing to compromise personal information, the fields in BOLD print above will not be shared.

I'd be happy to share the rest of the data which gives an idea of where various boat models may have been located around the globe.   Clearly many of these boats would be relocated or no longer in use today., etc.

Let me know if that limited data helps, and I'll see if I can trim it down into a manageable file.

No HIN numbers are in the old forum records.  It was a member database.

[edit] Here is the file

Because of this thread, I looked closer at the tags on my Surflite... come to find out, I have a FIREFLITE, not a SURFLITE.  I looks like it's the FIREFLITE 155... not the SURFLITE 153 that was shown in the same color in the 1962 brochure!  However, I don't get it?... the brochure Fireflite doesn't mention having the bench seating in back like my boat has (also not shown in picture like the surflite), doesn't mention the "hard top" option like my boat has, but the Surflite does mention those items, that's why I thought it was the Surflite to begin with.  Also, the HP rating in the brochure is different than the tag.   I wonder now if this was a mistake on the label they placed on it?  What do you guys think?  I'm not 100% positive what I have.  Guess I would have to default to Fireflite, since that's what the tag says, even though it doesn't match the brochure.

1962 Glastron, Model: FIREFLITE, SURFLITE?
HIN: 02218 (interesting... they glassed in a paper tag with a handwritten serial number on it and FIREFLITE listed as model.  That tag is glassed under gunwale, port rear side.  In addition, I posted another picture showing the OBC rating tag, just above that tag stamped into the aluminum trim piece is that same serial number.  I wonder if they did that at factory, or if the original owner did that?)
