  • Glasply spotting

    Are we going to renew the section called "GlasPly Spotting"? I was in and out of Seattle last weekend on my way to Yakima to go dove hunting, and while we were picking up a friend on the south end of Lake Washington I spotted this cutie out his window. He says the owner is an avid waterskier, and takes the boat out just about every day in the summer. Is that anyone on this site?

    I don't know the owner, but like the idea of getting the spotting thread going, I talked with a guy launching from langus park on the Snohomish sat. Mentioned the,site, and got a,few pics of the boat as he launched. Then a video as he motored by my fishing spot soon after. I will upload them tomorrow, my home PC down, working from my phone.

      Well, you just started it, Smee! I moved it to the General forum, and even made it a sticky! Congratulations! First you're the recipient for the esteemed 2013 Long Distance Award, not to mention you swept the Mocktail Contest at the Rendezvous as well! And now you are the original poster of the new forum's first sticky!

      And Will, I love your "Confidence" sig line! Classic!

        Thanks, Binford, but I'm not sure this is quite the right way to do it. Can't we have a separate tag again? It's a popular section of the site . . .

        So here's an interesting California vessel: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/boa/4062019232.html. It's a mid'80's GMI boat; maybe a 23-footer? The dash graphic says "marauder," which I've not seen on anything longer than a 21'. Interior looks bigger than 21 to me.

          Yes, it certainly was a popular one. So do you mean make "Glasply Spotting" it's own forum heading? Such as we have for "Fishing" and "Rendezvous" and the like? Easy enough if that's what you mean.

              That's a lot like Rodboat's Glasply down in Oregon.

              Here are some pictures of it (pulled and posted here so they won't expire with the CL ad)...
















              (You'll notice we can post more than 5 pics here on the new forum. I set it to 10.)

ID:	50741I saw this GP in Port Townsend on Tuesday. 1986 GP soft top that looks a lot like my boat, the Betty Boop. I opened the engine cover and can see it's the 140 Hp Mercruiser. $5,300 asking price. The vessel ID is shown minus the last digit, its a 5.

                    Out off Possession Point yesterday we saw about 4 or 5 other Glasplys. Here are a couple of them:





                    Anyone here?

                    At the dock in Kingston, a deputy sheriff drove up to me and asked about the fishing, commented on the Glasply and said he has one too--a 17'. I invited him to the forum.

                      I found these photos & VIN number for a 1976 23 ft Glasply that I was thinking about purchasing a few years back. The son of the original owner in Port Angeles was looking to sell it for his dad. It was in very good shape but wasn't quite what I was looking for at the time. I do have quite a few more pictures of it and could place them into an album if anyone with this model is interested.

                        Thanks for the HIN. 1978's and earlier may have wood stringer problems unless they were always stored under cover.
                        The cruise liner QE2 moves only six inches for each gallon of diesel fuel that it burns.

                          Saw this one on the Alaska State Trooper show. He got caught with undersized crab.

                            Did the trooper keep the boat?
