I tried to buy this boat a couple years ago, but missed out.  I'm not interested any more, but always thought this would be a nice one to own.  I believe its a 1982 SSV-184.

1969 Glastron GT-160 Rare restoration project - $2000 (Westmore, VT)
https://vermont.craigslist.org/boa/d/1969-glastron-gt-160-rare/6691029703.html

1969 Glastron GT-160 16 foot boat. The GT-160 was built from 1968 to 1975, taking a year off in 1970. The open bow design was only offered in 1968-69 so it is a rare boat to find. This boat has been in the family since new. It was always stored inside during the winter, and in a boathouse on a lift during summers at the lake. The trailer is included.

The boat needs to be restored, and likely needs new stringers/soles along with fixing a few small cracks here and there, but otherwise is solid. Sadly, we do not have the time or space for a restoration project. Please reach out if you would like any additional information! Asking $2000 OBO, as these are extremely rare!

Here is a link to a restoration with more detailed pictures of a similar boat (not the one we are selling)

This Intimidator is super rare as it is totally original and stock, see photos. 20 foot 3 inch length, 60 + MPH Chevy 350 prop boat and it's a bit on the loud side.

It has a ski pole and comes with a custom cover, skies, tube and ropes included. SERIOUS inquires only please, no trades, cash only, price is firm.

115 Mercury - $1500 (Shafer)
https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/ank/bpo/d/115-mercury/6662627870.html

83-84 Mercury 115 Inline 6 cylinder outboard. Ran good but haven't started it for about 3 years. Still on boat. Controls included. Prop not included. It is in nice shape for its age. I am looking to repower, thats the only reason I am selling.
I am sure it could use an impeller and a carb cleaning but was pumping water good, last time out.
I will remove from the boat after purchase.
Please do not come to look at it if you don't have the cash.

More pictures here …    http://forum.cgoamn.com/index.php?topic=7876.0

1978 Glastron GT-150.  Completely restored. 115 Mercury engine.  Great trailer. Some accessories included. Clear title in hand. $3,500

The rest of the story…

I’m offering this here first, hoping it goes to a fellow enthusiast rather than some fisherman who’d mount a trolling motor on the bow or someone who would let it sit outside uncovered.  I’m bringing it to Treasure Island for the meet to use myself or it could be considered “Free delivery” for a buyer also attending.

This “Bond Boat” started as a 1978 silver metalflake boat that had seen better days (trolling motor on bow).  I wanted to make it look like the 1972 boat which made the record setting jump in Live and Let Die so the restoration began.

About 8 years ago I separated the halves and tore it down to a bare shell.  First to go in were new stringers.  Rather than a single piece of ¾” plywood, I sandwiched 2 layers of fiberglass between 2 pieces of 3/8” ply with staggered joints to get the needed length.  That gave me 6 plies instead of 5.  After coating with a resin/ acetone mix they were glassed in.  I changed the bilge configuration to accommodate a center mounted bilge pump.  I didn’t like how the original offset design left some water trapped in the bottom.

The transom was made of 2 layers of coated ¾” plywood with a couple layers of fiberglass between the layers, between the hull, and on the face.  I added larger knees tying into the stringers in anticipation of a larger than stock motor.

Next to go in was a ½” plywood floor.  After coating with the same mix it was screwed down using stainless hardware, then I put a layer of fiberglass over the entire thing.  I don’t like how carpet traps sand and moisture so I painted everything with alkyd enamel.  No regrets there.  I opted to add vents up front with no foam below the floor to let the floor breathe and hopefully prevent future rot.

The storage locker, toe kicks, and seat bases are all new wood matching the original design and painted with enamel. The storage locker has 12 volt and USB outlets as well as cup holders inside the door.  There is no stereo.

The wood on the original seat uprights were in good shape so I reused them.  I made new seat bases.  I added new foam and had everything covered with new white and silver carbon fiber look vinyl with orange welting.  The back curtain has the Glastron logo embroidered on it and is held down with Velcro.

The paint was all new 3 or 4 years ago.  It is Signature Finish from Fabula in Florida.  I sent the owner some pics of the Bond Boat and he mixed up a special color for me.  It’s a roll on/ brush on application.  I may not have mixed it properly for the conditions and I ended up with a lot of orange peel.  You can’t see any roll marks and there are no scratches.  I didn’t want to make it worse by trying to wet sand it so I left it as-is.  It looks great from a distance. Lol.  There is a little crack where the transom meets the upper cap.  It not structural, just cosmetic.  That’s a problem area on the GT’s.

While I had the trim off I polished everything to a mirror finish.  It has lost some luster over the years but it still looks better than the original cast finish.  The bilge pump with auto switch, rub rail insert, cleats, bilge pump outlet, stern light and light socket are all new (3 years ago).  The GT-150 badge on the bow is a machined aluminum piece I polished and painted.  It hides a custom 12 gallon aluminum gas tank in the bow.  The football emblems on back are period correct.  I cleaned up and painted those.  The running lights are the cat eye style, one on each side.

I have the gauges that came with the motor.  They are included but not installed yet.  The horn, lights, and bilge switches are new.  The steering wheel matches the style used on the Bond boat and has SS inserts.

The Mercury 115 Tower of Power was installed recently.  It has an integral trim pump so I filled the hole in the splashwell that allowed all the hydraulic lines to go in to an inboard pump.  I added a tilt/trim switch on the cowl so you can tilt the motor while you’re at the back to install the transom saver.  It has a 19 pitch SS prop.  I’ve only had the boat out one weekend with this motor and it ran amazing.  I didn’t GPS it but we’re guessing I was in the upper 40’s, low 50’s.  It started chine walking at top speed so it could use some dialing in for stability at top speed.

The trailer got new wheels, tires, bearings, bearing buddies, winch strap, bow stop, transom straps, tongue jack, LED tail-lights, paint and stickers 3 years ago.
I’m also including the orange accessories.  There’s 2 dock lines, one stretchy dock line (love it), one long rope for tying up onshore, tool box, whistle, 2 flashlights, 2 bumpers with orange ropes, and a paddle.

The restoration was mostly completed 2 or 3 years ago.  It’s been in a heated shop since I’ve owned it.  It hasn’t sat in the water more than 3 days at a time a couple of times a year.

I hate to sell it but I need some money to finish up my CV-23 and do some other things.
