Welcome and grats on the boat. I have one too, and I love it. Always get comments at the lake. Is yours green or purple?

I seen the pictures of some CV16's and they are really nice. Mine is met. blue with white and white int. It's going to be powered by an 1975 85hp Merc. I am tring to some time off at work to come see your show next month. Do any of you know if some body has a spare molded dash, mine is pretty trashed. I will post pictures tonight. And thanks for the welcome you guy's sound like a fun and good bunch of people. Look forward to meeting some of you if I can make it. :D

We would love to have you join us!  As far as the dash, I know steve is getting rid of one of his CV-16's  He might let you have the dash if no one else takes the whole boat.  You can ask him.  His screen name is 74 Carlson

I don't think your cv is a 74 unless it has been repainted. In 74 the only colors the cv16 came in is metal flake green/white and purple/white, might be a 1975 though. Sorry I don't have a extra dash but you keep checking on the glastron of the day and you will end up finding one.

Well I checked the ser. number against the title and it's the same, factory blue still has Carlson stickers on it. May be a last of the year model so they used the following years blue. To me all that matters is its a Carlson and I hope some day it looks as good as all of yall's.. Now they look good!

Nice Boat Mike. Looks like you've got your work cut out for you. (Pun intended ...)

My guess would be a late production '74 Super with some leftover SS blue gel ...?

Steve is correct. The '74 Super came in green or plum. But the I/O SS could be had in blue or green. That & the '75 CV16 (No longer called "Super". Sorry.) could be had in blue.

Thank's, none taken besides I know you guys are just looking out for me. I have almost got all the hardware removed, and the windshield is in good shape. Yet I did find a soft spot or two when I removed the carpet, so you know its floor time! Gotta love the glass...Mabe next year I will have my boat up there for a few run's. ;)
