I have acquired a boat that says Glasspar on the side, Larson as the hull ID, and 1957 Glasspar on the registration with no matching numbers. It is a tri hull, kind of Texas Longhorn orange, and has a 1972 85 HP Evinrude.
Too dark for pix now, but before I go to Fish and Game,,,,
Thanks for input.I researched some and it seems Larson acquired Glasspar or vice versa, ?
According to the information listed Larson bought Glasspars assets in 1966. I had a 1969 Glasspar Cutlass trihull, but don't recall ever finding any Larson tags or badges. If it is a 1957, that would predate Larson, and I don't think Glasspar produced a trihull until 1966(?), others will probably be able to chime in with more info. They did however produce a really interesting series of hulls in the 1950s that have an unusual flat keel, which is sort of trihull-esque. If you can post pictures there are probably folks on here who can give you more information. Enjoy the new acquisition!
Yes, I read up some and sent an e-mail to Larson, but I think you are right, most apt to be a 1972. I say that mostly because of the 1972 85 HP Evinrude on it, which is why I wanted it, but it;s not in terrible shape, just the sun eaten seats which is standard issue in the valley of the sun. I'll try to upload pix this AM.
