My 1977 T-156
« on: May 06, 2019, 06:15:29 AM »
Hello All,  Here's a picture of my Glastron. My Dad bought it for myself, brother and sister shortly after our mother passed away in 1977. We named her the Tibby, my mom's nickname. This past summer I replaced the floor boards and some of the interior. About 12 years ago the boat was stolen and stripped of the 70 hp Merc and controls. We had a houseboat vacation planned so I bought a 1976 V-156 to use for the trip. About 2 months later I got a letter from the City saying I needed to come pick up my property. Had no idea what was up as the police report etc turned up nothing, anyway, there was my boat albeit stripped. Brought it home and swapped everything from the 76 to the 77 ( 76 had a rotted transom). Anyway, nice to find this forum!
