Brad I just read this post. Real interesting as I am doing the same project? What did the seating end up looking like? Did you make your own? I am just trying to work out the best idea and layout..

Hey Mate,

What a fabulous build and woderful report.

I have just recently procured for myself a 1975ish glasscraft, that needs a little bit more than a little bit of TLC.

Have you got any build pics for the interior?  Im trying to sort my layout and need some ideas.

Or if anyone has any information about Glasscraft in general,  I'd love to hear it.

I ran into a previous owner of the boat from Tauranga while getting the boat home after putting it back on the trailer after an errant wheel took off the wrong way round the Windermere round-a-bout and nowI'm interested in trying to track down some history..



Cheers
Christopher

It is a Glasscraft 16.

I used to know someone with one. They would go out in all weathers and give the thing a real hammering. Must have been a strong beast as it survived.

Rather a low boat though, so a consideration if intending to use in areas with wind v tide steep chop or bar crossings.

Thanks,was wondering how I was going to do it.  Can you please stop the rain!!

Have though of putting up her gazebo, but that got the stern look on suggestion.

After 3 weeks of rain, took a gamble this morning with first coat.
Plan to leave 3 days to hard then 2nd coat,leave 7 days then move blocks. Hopefully back on trailer mid August.
