Two favorite stories w/that boat.

#1. Me and my 2 buddies heading back to the trailer after a weekend of drunken debacherey @ the islands. Was rolling the typical 2' to 3's in the Bay when we came on this 35' Cigarette.
Looked at my buddies (who all knew me REAL well) and asked if they were willing to go for a swim to make a point. They both just smiled knowing they had no real choice. The 1st passenger on the Cig glanced back and noticed us and absolutely freaked out. He gets the rest of the crews attention, including the driver which of course pin's the throttles. We cleared his wake by probably 5', had 15 MPH's on him and stayed in front long enough to prove it.
When we slowed down we checked the cuddy and EVERYTHING had dumped on the floor! Including spilled, warm beer and melted ice out of the coolers annnddddd, 3 day old fish bait all on top of our clothes and sleeping bags. What a mess.
was an epic weekend though and well worth it.

#2. Two couples of us staying the weekend on the boat and got weathered in on Pelee Island. Poured down rain all night! With all 4 of us in the cabin it floated bow down so the rain ran under the cabin door into the cuddy where the bilge pump couldn't get to it
Every 1/2 hr, all night I went out in the rain in my underwear and sat on the motor so the water would run out of the cabin and into the bilge to get pumped out
Another epic weekend.

On the Glastron's, the ones I've seen and owned were designed way better than they were constructed. Some day I will probably re-do a GT160 16' O/B which I think is one of the most beautiful designs of all time.

Very cool story! Wish I had freinds like that to hang with.

We have two Glastron Carlsons and they are great boats. One is a Ski Machine and the other is a CV23. The Ski Machine is basically a CVX20 with an O/B and a full length molded skeg. They added a ski locker, rear facing bench seat, glove box, and ski pylon as well. I have a 200 Evinrude Sport on my Ski Machine and it'll run about 65mph which is fast enough for me! Hole shot is amazing too!

My family has been a Glastron dealer for nearly 50 years and I've been fortunate enough to run down some of these boats over the years. They are getting very hard to find but are the best looking runabouts out there.

Very cool Like I said if I cant steal it not going to buy it. I need a nother boat like I need a hole in my head. NOthing seems to be selling that would be the only reason for getting it

They did some really innovative stuff during that era.
The Scimitar being one. I really liked the 27' (CV 27??) twin I/O sport boat they built too. Doubt they built many of them and know I've only seen a few. Not much freeboard for a boat that size but had great lines. Was a project for sale locally not long ago.

I had an old Evinrude 235 cross flow on my CVX. Ran 67 when I first rigged it and 73 just by getting the fuel tank out of the bow.
Was at 77 w/same motor when I got bored and sold it.
I've never seen a GT set up to go fast w/an O/B and would love to do one. I have the proper motor for a larger project but would be on suicide watch on a GT 16. Thought of finding one of the larger I/O or jet hulls and converting it.

Brother has a 23 CVX Carlson, 460/Berkley.

Not a bad boat, but the hull is paper thin and see thru.
