So guys, I have a question.. Something ive been wondering. I do not see anyone else with the same model as me, I have seen some owens/cutters but not many, why is this? Are they not populair? Or just extremely rare? Still trying to find more information on my boat
Did you check the Glassic Library (above). there is an extensive history of the company.
I have know Owens boats from the mid 50's but only as wooden cruisers. My father in law had one. I never knew they made a glass boat called Owens but I was familiar with the Cutters. Looks like in the early 60's they were splashing out quite a few glass boats according to the article so I wouldn't say yours was rare but just not too many left around anymore that are on the water.
I'm working on getting an almost junk 1959 Cutter Jet Deville back on the water. Removed all the wet sponge "floatation" foam under the seats, as well as the wet sponge transom, and have already replaced the transom. Much more transom glass work to do before the summer is out, and the whole boat needs paint, especially the poor brush job on the deck. Also have a '62 70 hp I-6 short shaft Merc being built for it. Need a couple 3 gallon gas tanks, too difficult anymore to hoist a 6 gallon one...
Sabre, I did read the library. Multiple times. Just wish there’d be more pictures, this winter I’m continueing the restoration, adding upgrades, making things better, redoung things etc. Thanks for the tips
