  • Hello from Seward AK

    I just bought a glasply I want to say Cuddy hardtop? My husband and I have never owned anything bigger then a small river boat. It has a penta Volvo AQ131A and a 280 outboard. The engine was locked, starter frozen, zincs trashed, interior fairly shot, when we got it. Someone pulled out all the electronics and I think cut the plug part of the wire for gps off but left the wire. All sorts of wires to nowhere. Need to fix the messed up running light routing so itís running off the correct rocker. Horn doesnít work, On the positive, if accurate there was only 220 hours on the 131 and once I got it unfrozen sounded great.
    So I have unlocked the engine and replaced the starter and alternator belt, plugs, wires, oil filter, oil, zincs in route and putting the correct propeller on.
    Shop manual in route and I have an owners manual for a 145(is it the same as the 131?)
    Doing a few things and taking it out on the water a few times and then into a place where I can strip the interior and redo it. Fun sitting here thinking of colors Iím gonna redo it.

      Sounds like you are having fun! That's a great outdrive! What length and year is your GP?

        Nice find. A little TLC and some hard work and you'll have a great boat. A little teak oil on the door and woodwork will bring them back to life.

            I totally spaced on giving the HIN just guessing thatís a M GPL19301M82D-10. Does anyone have insight about my boat with this hull number?

              GPL19301M82D indicates it is an 82 model, 19 foot and 301st boat built that year. Based on your pics it definitly is an 82.

                  The -10 at the end of the HIN is meaningless. Furthermore, it often complicates registration or titling as it does not comply with the 12-digit HIN standard. If that becomes an issue for you when you are registering it, be sure to let the licensing agency know that the -10 is nothing more than a suffix. Not really part of the HIN itself.
