That was a 16 Glastron...... 1966.

Same hull as this......in 1965.

Power on the Bat boat was a small Mercruiser......

I kidda figured you were in the boat. Damn, I wish the day I was working on DanL's boat I would have dropped everything and stopped you to say hi.. That was in NY, with DanL, the year he was killed.
