Thank You all for the friendly welcome, to all that responded to my search request for the boarding ladder. I am still looking! Here are a few photos of my ride. I just cleaned her up and gave her a nice wax today and will post some better photos shortly but for now, these are photos taken by the prior owner.
I actually have a history of Glastron ownership. My first was a 73 GT-160 with a Johnson 115 that I restored, then a 78 GT-150 in the centennial white option that I also restored. Following that I had a 77 Bayflight with the 140 Merc. I/O. Shortly ther after, I restored a 79 CVX-18 with a 350 block and through hull exhaust and then back to a 76 GT-150 and now here with the model that I've searched for a long time, my CV-16 V8. This is my first Glastron with a Volvo Outdrive.
