Very nice. Not many CV23HTís out there. Interesting how big the flotation boxes are in the back compared to a regular CV23. Barely any storage room. Wonder why that is.

Hey all,

I'm Jay and I live in Dodge City, Ks.

Just bought my 1st Glastron 1986 HPV 175.
Getting on here to find information on restoration of it. 

The previous owners did not take of her, the great thing is the engine has less the 200 hrs.

Welcome to the forum Jay !
Don't think we've had a HPV restore here.
Boat's are boat's so should be the same as other Glastrons.
Can ya post some pictures ?

HEY,my name is Scott I live in the heart of the Adirondack mountains,Saranac Lake.
My home is actually accessible by boat or snowmobile only. I'm 4 miles up the lake on a waterway that is 14 miles long with two sets of locks. My Glastron is a 1986 CVX 18 with a 350 in it 260 horse. I've owned a couple other Glastron thru the years started with a GT 150 with 70 on it had a tri Hull also don't remember the model of that jumped up to a Switzer with a 235 on it then went to a checkmate tri mate ll with a 150, currently have for boats in the water including an airboat. My very first boat I bought when I was 13 had a10 Merc hurricane on that one totally wasted the motor but I do still have the boat which I am currently rebuilding  it is an 11 foot Runabout. IM RETIRED AN JUST HAVING FUN.

Hi folks!

I just picked up my first boat - a 1975 V179 with the Volvo AQ130C inboard/270 outdrive.  No seats, remaining upholstery is a mess, the original gelcoat is tired (needs a reaaaaaaal good polish), and the motor was partially disassembled by the previous owner a year or so ago, but it was $300 and it floats.  I'm partially excited for this project, but wondering if I bought off more than I can chew since in the past 3 days I've been unable to find any rebuild kits for the motor or people willing to work on these boats.  I've registered the thing, but waiting on spending any more money until I find one of those two things.  Hoping to get a classic back out on the water, so any help y'all can offer is welcome!

Welcome to the forum John !
Have you tried GLM ?

Any soft spots in floor ?
Most 40 plus year old Glastron's need floor, transom & stringers.

I checked for leaks this morning and thankfully the hull is solid, but I also found 2 soft spots on the floor near the engine.  Unless I find some more economical options to fix the engine, I'll probably be passing the boat off and looking for one in better condition...  :(  I'd love to make this classic run again, but it's looking pretty bad right now.  Finally found one guy who could work on it, but I'd be looking at 2K+ for a rebuild or engine swap.

Welcome John.

Glad you got the itch for an old Glastron. Sounds like you got quite the project. The V179 is not uncommon and pretty easy to find. You can find a pretty nice original one for not much more than $2k so paying for a rebuild is probably not worth it. There is nothing wrong with the Volvo set up other than parts are harder to find and I donít think you get power trim. The Mercruiser 140 is also offered in those boats. Much easier to find parts. Iíd look for something else and now you know what to look for. And bring a screwdriver to poke the transom and check for soft spots as Gregg mentioned. A wet sand and polish will go a long way to bring the finish back.

New member to the club. Old member to Glastron. Own/ed at least 10 with 2 CVX 20's currently.  I'm always looking for good conversation and information on CVX's.  I live in northern WI so I hope to personally meet some of you at one of your next outings

I may come down for a day to check things out but it is during a busy time of work for me. Plus my wife probably will not let me go see all the Glastrons... I have bought the last three I have seen!   8) Some may call it a sickness.  I say SO!  leave me alone!

Hello, All:

Steve here. I live in Chisago City and just picked up a lovely and well-maintained 1974 GT-150 with the original trailer and original Evinrud 70. All were well cared for by the previous owner who bought it from the original owner in 1981. The engine was completely gone over with new pistons, rods, and various other parts in 2016, with very few hours since then. Iíve had it out so far on Prior Lake with my daughter, who couldnít stop smiling and loved driving it, as well as on the Whitefish Chain, putting in at the Corps of Engineers campgrounds on Cross Lake. Immediate plans are to keep it available for use as long as possible this fall, then do some minor work over the winter to clean up the motor mount.

As you all know, these things are like go-karts for the water, and itís been fun getting ďthumbs upĒ from other boaters old enough to remember...looking forward to many more years of acting like a kid again!
