The very first boat my Dad bought was a glaspar; I would recognize one anywhere. It came with a 60hp Gale; anyone remember those? I would also love to see a few pics of the old girls.....

How about this website?

Hey Racencase,

That is just like ours. It was 18', with a small cabin with v-berth. Our cabin was closed, with a door. Still had plenty of room to fish in the back. In a way, it was the perfect 18' boat. The cabin was not "that" small either; bigger than alot of today's cuddy cabins on bigger boats.

My first fiberglass boat was a 1967 Glasspar Avalon with a Mercury 65 HP O/B on the transom. It was #2 of 19 (so far).

I picked it up used in the mid 70's. I didn't have to refurb it since it was still like new (it was originally purchased new by an old fart that kept it in his garage) when I got it.

I did add a lot to it though. CB, FF, gauges, indoor/outdoor carpeting, cockpit lighting, etc...

If a TV show called "Pimp my Boat" existed back then, I could have starred in it!

I think the 18' may have been the "Avalon" or something like that. The Delmar is 16' but three can sleep in the cabin with the center filler in place and four can sit comfortably as is. If I live long enough to restore mine, I'll be draggin it around the TVA lakes near me and an occasional trip to Lake Marion and to do some inshore fishing in the Charleston area.

GOOD LUCK ON YOUR RESTORE! THOSE BOATS SURE BRING BACK SOME GREAT MEM. AS A KID I WOULD SLEEP IN THE CABIN RIGHT AT THE DOCK.

Default Not a Glasspar

For some reason I thought this was a Glasspar - once I found the old images I realized it is a Correct Craft but it was too pretty not to post.
