    1977 Glastron Carlson CV23

    Over the weekend I went to look at a CV23. He said he was only the second owner of this local boat. From the pictures it looked too good to be true. Besides the typical sun fading on the bow the interior appeared to look like new. The white stuff you see on the bow is the left over wax he never wiped off, it came off at home and I think with a good polish I can bring back most of the shine back on the bow! When I saw it in person I couldn’t believe my eyes… Not a tear in sight nor any sun fading. In fact the material appears soft as if it had just been made! He even had the matching original privacy snap in screen for the cuddy as well as the original snap on cover.

    We took it out for a test run on the river and it performed flawlessly. I was surprised how quickly it flattened out, as well as how fast it was able to go. We hit 55mph at top speed and there was a little left I’m sure. Every gauge and light worked. It’s almost as if we were taking it out for the first time ever! I shook his hand and made the deal before we even got to the dock! Not sure what these are worth, because there was nothing for sale close to gauge the price, but I feel like I might have paid a little too much. But I’m okay with that!

    Wow that's about the nicest CV23 I've seen. Not that I've seen many, but wow! Most seem to have a funky stepped front that, to me, is hideous. I always wondered why they didn't slope it like how yours is. Much nicer!

    Can you post a pic of the cuddy area? I've always wondered what they look like under there.

    Got it put away under cover last night! Just need to winterize it before I put the cover on and put her to bed. I bought the bought kind of unexpectedly so the rest of this year is booked unfortunately and fall is upon us! I had to put a few cars in the shop to make room lol I will get a lot more detailed photos before I close her up!

    I havnt priced in a while but I helped a friend broker a local one to me a couple of years ago since he was out of state. They were holding above average value then when the economy was weak, so I wouldn't figure they are tanking in value now. E-bay, forums, on-line listings seem to favore the 8-10k range unless you could find one sitting pretty in a barn somewhere. Luckily I will get to anchor next to Rich's CV23 tomorrow at Lake Powell!
