Your close to the twin cities. Hope you will be able to attend the glastron meet in August. 

Quite often they the summer several people will meet on the river on a Saturday. Most often somebody will post that there going out.

First focus is to get the boat ready, but I have been lurking here for at least two seasons watching the pics and stories from the meetup.

Hey. I am Harby. Since I was 13 I have wanted a glastron Carlson. I have looked for years to find the one that was perfect. Several weeks ago I thought I had found it. This boat was described as perfect and from all the pictures it looked it. So for the first time in my life I bought something from someone I didnít know and that I hadnít seen. Needless to say it was not as described. It is a 1973 CV 19 jet with a 455 olds engine. I think the bones are good but I paid too much for a project. Neither the carburetor or distributor are correct and I have ordered new. Compression is good all around so I think I have something to work with. The interior looks good but needs some work to make it right. The gauges are there but donít work. With all that said I look forward to getting everything fixed and would appreciate any help.

Hi, I am Jay Johnson Johnjx7. New to the group today and THANKS. Grew up on lake Winnebago in Wisconsin .Currently in Illinois. I do not have a Glastron at the moment but am looking for ONE.  My current project is nearly complete. 1974 Sea sprite 15 ft Cougar with 72 Mercury 650. Replaced transom, floor, stringers, interior. All that is left is water pump and take for a ride. Thanks to all in the group.

Hey ! Happy to be a new member here from Montreal. Purchased a CV23HT (I think) and looking forward to getting to work on it. Saw some amazing threads on rebuilds but I don't believe I will be taking it that far. Previous owner put a clear coat over the gel with a paint brush so I'll have fun taking care of that and will probably need to reupholster the seat. Haven't started it yet but was winterized properly. Looking forward to the summer!
