Floor seems solid did not check transom

Needs all new vinyl

Hull and flake in very good condition very little dock rash

Only molested area is the speakers added to center console

Not sure on motor and out drive does turn over with 30lbs oil pressure but believe there is a spark issue

Been in heated storage for the last 10yrs and not licensed for the last 7

Jeff looks like a good buy if the motor and drive are good. Notice the boarding ladder is starboard vs port.

Nice looking boat, will have to get together some time when we are heading to Detroit Lakes this summer.

Been wearing out the pavement between here and there about every other weekend.

Thanks Carlsoncvx18.  Yes DL is close by, what lake are you on?  I like your 18's too, very nice boats.

Gregg, Yes, just some clean up and electrical bugs to sort out.  One owner boat that was five miles away from our house.  Plan on selling this spring.

Cool! My brother's orthodontist was in DL and we lived in Fergus and I would always have to go with for his appointments. The bonus was we would usually stop at the Glastron dealership to check out the new boats.  That made it worthwhile.  This would have been in the late 70's.

Remember those days of going into the Glastron dealer in Fargo and seeing the simitar and also into the Chevrolet dealer and looking at the  DeLorean.

     Just saw a DeLorean DMC-12 today as a matter of fact.   Coincidence maybe?   That's a nice looking 18, just some wiring issues?  Seems everthing around here is just one step away from wrecking yard.
