I'm into Concords now but the boat that is nearest an dearest to me is my ol mans 1978 glastron Carlson cvx 16 with a 115 Johnson. He bought it brand new and still uses it three or four days a week. Not a very fast boat but handles like a dream.

The Glastron was followed by my first all mine boat, a 13' Checkmate MX with a Merc 50 XS short shaft. He wouldn't buy it but loaned me the money and let me make payments to the Bank of Dad. Washed a lot of cars for that little hot rod, been a slipery slope ever since.
I was into water skiing and in 88 had a 18 foot checkmate 2nd boat after I saw that episode of Vice (That I Watched religiously) Set my sights on A bigger boat !
