Finding one of those would be the ultimate score as far as were concerned

I seen a few of the late 50's cabin cruisers (Seaflite Seville cruiser) but have never seen a early to mid 60's I/O cruiser.
Might be listed as something other then Glastron .. or they totally rotted out and were scrapped.
Maybe only 4 or 5 Saberflite also ..

Cool Glastron swoosh Chris !
5 or 10 HP Merc ?

 Dads Adventurer was a straight inboard. That boat was built like a battle ship ! The hull was about  1 1/4 thick and she weighed 6-8 thousand lbs! Twin Fords pushed her about 25 mph.
   On my boat , that was a Mark 25 Mercury... I think it was 20 hp... shed run 32 mph.

Finished my side boards.... polished the trim that goes on top. The filler piece that goes across the back I decided to use a piece of the carpet I had left over. Im taking it to this guy to put a boarder around the edge to finish it off.... also glued a piece of vinyl to the back for support.

Its getting closer! After waiting a month for an aluminum plate to bend up for the transom, I got the engine attached to the boat now! All i need to do now is the steering and hydraulics and she be ready !
Here are some pix of how the engine hangs on the transom.

Hope all go's well !
Years ago I tried one of Dave's two blade Hi Performance props, got within a MPH or two of the Laser II prop.
Believe it was the 22P from bottom chart.
Very smooth, low steering torque, no chine walk.

I am restoring my CV16
Where did you get the Burlwood?
Also any ideas on carpet as I am unable to find the original "PLUM" or purple?
