I recently purchase a 1973 Glastron Tri-Hull V-186 Swinger for $100. I plan on rebuilding her from the ground up and make her like a new boat. It came with a running 1973 Evinrude 135Hp outboard and she runs great. What a mess had been stored under a pine tree for over a year without tarp. It was full of leaves and pine needles they were even inside the hull in the bilge.
Over the Winter I am going to buy new Lounge and Jump seats and make new bow seats to match. In the spring, New trailer lights, New Propeller, Remove Rub Rail Seal and seal the seam, Rebuild Lower unit including seals and water pump, New carpet throughout, Replace Bow Drain hose, Repair floor under rear deck, Install 2nd bulge, and re wire the entire boat because a none of the switches work and the fuse panel is toast. Then over the summer I would like to Rebuild dash with new gages, repair the power trim, perminatly mount secondary fuel tank, Repair / replace glove box, replace rcnter window, replace vinyl trim and add a fish finder. We will see how it goes.
