NEW member from Illinois - 1979 Glastron Carlson CVX-18
« on: May 26, 2019, 08:05:48 AM »
Hello from Illinois!

At the end of the boating season last year, I stumbled across a 1979 CVX-18 and instantly fell in love.

This is only my second boat, and my first was a little tin can with a 25hp OB... so I am on a bit of a learning curve. Don't be surprised if I sound like a total noob at times!!  ;D

I've read some of the forum posts here and I'm looking forward to meeting you online - and maybe in person at a meetup!

Welcome to CGOAMN, from the photo you must have found that 18 in Wisconsin?  I wonder if someone on the forum would recognize it?  Bring it to MN for the August meet, guarantee a good time and lots of Glastrons.

Thanks for the welcome, everybody!!

I did find the boat in WI. I wasn't even really looking for one, it just kind of happened.

The boat has been well maintained, from what I can tell.

Here is another photo. I'll post some more!

I saw the MN meetup, but I have an obligation that weekend. I'll try to make it next year, or maybe another meetup. I think I saw some past events in Iowa.

Does anybody know if there are other members down here in IL?

You hang around us long enough and you'll have a CV23 of your own as well.
