Got to take out the original owner of my Glasply out fishing on the 26th, was a great day out with Glenn, and had lots to tell me about my new boat. he was friends with the daughter of the owner of Glasply at the time. was kinda funny he wanted no sink,stove, cabinets or fancy padded combing along the sides, just a basic fishing boat, but this one was rolling out of production ans was available now, he did not want to wait for them to custom build a glasply for him. it was original power was the BMW that he loved, but opted for a re-power in 2000 to the volvo penta. the BMW was very fuel efficient. but the lack of repair parts availability was worrying to him. he also told me of how his wife only rode in the boat once in the 37 years he owned it. 

i hope to have Glenn come up to go fishing with me again many times, it was a real honor to have him with me on a boat he loves so much. it was amazing when we docked, he jumps out of the Glasply and finds a water hose to clean her up, just like it was still his. i really want to find him another 23 and put a cummins in it for him. it was funny when we were coming up to the dock the he comments to me he never smelt any diesel fumes. i kinda laughed you shouldn't.

got to send him home with a nice 21 lb white spring that he and his wife will really enjoy.
