Welcome to the CGOAMN. Have you known about our group for very long?  Where in Minnesota do you live?  Yours is the third CVX-16 in the group that I know of, including mine. Your boat has had obvious excellent care over the years as the interior and exterior look brand new.

Very cool. Your boat has 3 separate model names on it. CVX-16 on the dash SS-CVX-16 on the bow, and cvx-16 Deluxe on the capacity plate.

.    Might be that I'm in Nebraska, but I owned two CVX-16's, a 79 deluxe(OB) and an 80 SS 140 merc.

I live out in the western suburbs of the Minneapolis area.  I learned about the group when I went to pick up my boat from winterizing.  As I was getting ready to leave, someone pulled in to the marine shop and came right over to look at and discuss the boat.  He's the one who told me about the group.  He had owned a CVX years ago, but he had sold it to get another boat.  My CVX brought back memories for him. 

This past summer one time when I had the boat out on a small local lake there was one other boat on the water.  When I went to take my boat out of the water he immediately also headed over to the boat launch.  He wanted to see my boat up close and discuss it. 

I'm still looking for old photos from film cameras of my boat, and will need to scan them so I can post them here.  Maybe scan tonight. 

This past June I went to the Wayzata Art Experience where there was a boat show with the Bob Speltz Land-O-Lakes Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society.  I assumed they were only interested in wood boats, but when I showed them photos they said they also welcomed classic old fiberglass boats.  So I plan on taking the boat to the event this coming year, assuming the weather is good.

These photos are from the christening in May 1982.  Yes, I still look exactly the same now as in the photos.  By the way, the boat was christened "Crusader" as that is what I had originally planned to buy, a Crestliner Crusader.  I didn't break the bottle of champagne, we drank it.

The only change I can see in the 36 years is the prop color changes from white to black, and some paint off the skeg - a time capsule boat.

Here are some photos of the CVX-16 on Pelican Lake, south west of Detroit Lakes, where it went on vacation.  These photos are from the early to mid 1980's.   

Pelican Lake was sometimes referred to as the Lake Minnetonka of Fargo, as many wealthy people from Fargo had very large "cabins" built there.  Note the "cabin" on the hill (Devil's Slide) in the last photo.

Yes, the prop changed from the original white to black stainless steel.  Of course I have the original prop.

A few more photos.  There is a place under the bow for skis.

Here are more photos of items from the 1982 time frame.  First is the hand written sale information card which was on the boat at the dealer.  Note that I had the motor upscaled to a 115 Johnson.  Next is the dealer's name on the boat, and finally is the boat after picking it up from the dealer.  The car is a 1970 Chevrolet Nova with a 350 four speed stick shift.  I still have the car as well. 

I have the original owner's manual for the boat, motor (and motor installation manual), and trailer.  Also, I have the invoice and paid receipt for everything.  There are probably not a lot of owners who still have those items.

Found a 1979 CVX16 with a steering wheel like yours.

Thanks for finding this.  Yes, it looks the same except that my steering wheel has the wood grain trim finish, which I think looks nice with the rest of the wood grain trim in the boat. 

I did a little research on Glastron and found that it has changed ownership a number of times since I bought my boat.  The current 2019 model outboard with the least weight is approximately twice the weight of my boat and motor.  What happened to the little sport boats, the CVX's?
