  • First time boat owner!

    Hello everyone and thank you for having me! Like the title says, I'm new. Decided it was time for me to have my own boat so I can fish whenever I want and I stumbled across this old Glasply. I'm pretty sure most people would have run for the hills after seeing it but I looked at it and said to myself nothing a little blood, sweat and tears cant fix. It will give me more enjoyment fixing it then it knows ( I like to fix things).

    So, I'm now the owner of a 1973 Glasply, 19' runabout. The interior needs to be gutted completely and redone which I will enjoy doing. Exterior besides a few scuffs a dings looks to be in good shape. Mercruiser 165 inline 6 runs just needs some lovin.
    You may only view thumbnails in this gallery. This gallery has 5 photos.

            Our 73 21’ express had the same exact upholstery as yours, brings back memories!

              My dad fished that exact vessel type, hard top, with a buddy (boat was the buddy's) out of Newport Oregon for Salmon for years! Same Power package and went like the dickins!
