  • My 1992 Gastron 1900 Resotoration....Here we go again!

    Well IBoats friends, I have come to realize that this boat restoration stuff is a disease!!! I think it starts by your first itching session after grinding glass!!!!

    I couldnt help myself any longer... we needed something bigger than the GT. Kids getting bigger by the day.

    I came across this 92' Glastron 1900, asked WoG to go take a peak at it, since it was 30 minutes from his place. The deal has worked out and I will go down next weekend to pick it up. For sure needs a floor, llikely stringers outdrive cylinders and the normal cosmetics. We shall see once the floor is up.

    I can only ascertain that boat rebuilding is a disease for some?!

    Congrats on the new project. I'm sure you will over-build, over-engineer and over-spend (your budget)...following along with your permission?

      It's a nice looking hull. Worth fixing up. Definitely a "sofa boat" though as one of our members used to refer to most bowriders as. Awful lot of upholstery in that thing!

        EZ, yes, but the structure is first....Upholstery is the easy part!! I like that term.. Sofa boat! Not quite a pontoon, but the cushions are nice to have!!

              Subscribed and ready to watch another Master Restoration! Looking forward to what I'm sure will be a great boat when you're finished.

                Is that a patch on the side or gray primer? Both? Nice looking boat.

                    Nice looking hull Cor. What motor is in it? I had a 185 sea ray that was very similar. Great boat for 5 or 6 people. Looking forward to the build!

                      Arch, it has the 4.3L. This will serve the family much better than the GT. Like the "Family Truckster from Lampoons Vacation, but a bit better looking!!!

                        that is what my Sea Ray had Cor, it actually ran really well. Wasn't bad on fuel either. That is sort of what I have Fuggly for, minivan on the water to haul people around!

                          I initially thought the blue stripes were stickers, but i picked at the transition line and its gel. So the interior will stay blue and white. I will buff a spot to see shade of blue.

                          I think this is kind of cool... the original owners manual!! I am the 3rd owner. the last guy had it 6 years, and the Original bought it new in 92.

                            Congrats! can't wait to see what you do to this boat. I guess I better finish my first rehab before you have a second one done.
