Hi everyone, I just bought a fairly complete 1960 G3 in what looks like very restorable condition. I've owned a couple of Glasspars in the past, an Avalon that was a basket case and a 1959 Citation that I began restoration on, but never completed due to an out of state move 10 years ago. I've always wanted a G3 since that first Avalon purchase and now I have one! I was a member on the old Glasspar forum and have been a member here since the early 2000's, but haven't been active as I've not been boating in a while.
I'm really excited to get to work on this project and I know it will take a few years to do it right, I just wanted to introduce myself and thanks in advance for any assistance from the group. I haven't picked the boat up yet, but added some pics if anyone is interested.
Welcome aboard! There are G3 experts here. Evinrude experts ( post questions under the J.E.G.O. Forum), and just plain overall experts here to help. To be clear, I am a learner and not an expert. I have seen pictures of that boat before... has my favorite Evinrude on it. Very cool package!! Good luck and enjoy it.
Thanks for the warm welcome, I picked the boat up Tuesday and it was in much better condition that I had expected, so I think I'm just going to fix the engine, repair the mat on the floor to seal it and run it as a survivor rather than begin a major project. I'm working on getting all of the accessories I need to put in somewhere and see how she runs. That starflite is way more complicated than the twins.
