Everything looks like a glastron just different.. I think itís the Canada version.. and I donít see any reason to change it to the 3 stringers, the 4 stringers might be a little stronger.. and the foam transon boxís are a triangle instead of a box.       Letís see some better pictures of the top.. this it what my 76 gt looked like when I started.

I will be at Muddy waters for lunch but I have to run back to my shop afterwards. Toni and I sold our house in River Falls but I still have 3 or 5 boats to get done and out so the new owners can move in. I will also be at the Kinni on Saturday and back to TI at night for the gathering.

If the plastic gear on the crankshaft is damaged, those broken plastic pieces are inside the engine. Even if you decide to remove the oil injection you should tear into the powerhead to clean out the debris.

Weren't you going to "rebuild" this engine?

I believe that if you remove the oil pump drive shaft you can inspect the worm gear on the crankshaft for damage.

Did you already replace stringers, they look to be in good shape.
As long as there in good shape and attached to transom ya should be good with 3 or 4.
My CV16 only has one down the center.

1972 and older (In USA) will not have the serial number embossed into stern.
They would have a plate on dash, back by transom/splash well or on control board where throttle control bolts to.
Under stern / splash well area, there might be a small piece of paper with serial number glassed in, on bottom were red circle is.

Just a bump and a heads up, September 8th is just around the corner for the annual Glastron Mo River Run.   We meet at NP Dodge park, just north of Omaha Nebraska, head up north to Cottonwood Marina near Blair Nebraska for lunch, then float back at least some of the way back to NP Dodge.  Its only a day trip event, but camping and lodging is available for those interested.  NP Dodge usually offers camping, but this spring's flooding forced the campgrounds closure.  Not certain, but it might be open by the 8th, I kinda doubt it, but you could call and ask.  We try to launch at 10:00 am, hopefully everyone is ready to head north about 10:30-10:45.  If memory serves me correctly I think its about 26 river miles.   I am generally in no hurry, maybe do 30-35mph so the group stays fairly together.    Fuel is available at both locations.

So it's been a long time since I posted last, summer is super busy and haven't had much time working on the boat  :(
Was able to get the stringers cut and the wax coating removed and I'm ready to glass them in.

I have also done a little experiment with a small chunk of the left over LVL (laminated veneer lumber). From research and others opinions online there has been warning about the glue in them not holding up to moisture, so I took a chunk and threw it in a bucket of water and left it for the better part of 2 months.
Well the wood soaked up the water, as most wood/plywood would. But the glue is still firmly holding it all together. I cannot break it apart by hand. So i feel pretty comfortable in the decision with the LVL. It'll be a good strong hull, along with sealing everything up well and keeping it dry I'm sure it'll last a long time.

Few pics on them below.
