I wanted to share with you pictures of my restored Merc 1150 and the 1972 Glastron Carlson CV-16 that has been restored as well by Tim Calmes from Paradise Boat Works. Tim completely rebuilt the 1150 and then painstakenly sanded and restored the finish on the CV-16. It looks pretty good for a 44 year old boat/motor combination! This combination sure turns heads when I am out on the lake. Thanks to Tim and everybody on this forum for helping to keep these old Mercs (and boats) alive.
Reminds me of my Glastron GT-150 Merc 900 combo I used to own. That was the first Large outboard boat I owned,bought it when I was 22 years young. Lots of great memories with that ride....as soon as I seen your pictures I was taken back to 1989, damn what a summer it was !!!! Rob
