    Default needs pictures of a jet boat

    I recently got in touch with my uncle in Ojai and we started talking about jets. His was the first speed boat i had ever been in as a kid and as it turns out he still has it. He is going to try adn dig up some pictures for me but google turned up squat.

    Any chance one of you cats have a picure or can find me a picture of a 1973 Glencoe mini-cruiser? I dont need anything fancy but just so i can try to remember what she looked like.


    Thanks!

    I gave up trying to find very much info on glencoe boats a long time ago. As far as I can tell they are built well, but probably not up to "race" par. I know mine is definantly not a light layup hull. The big thing I like about it is how solid it feels on rough water. I am pretty sure my 74 has orig. stringers and I have never found a soft spot.
    Boating is nothing like cocaine, boating is much more addictive and results in bigger parties!

    One more thing, I think that glencoe boats were pretty "Splashy" as far as their hulls, mine is pretty close to a weinman hull. I guess what I am saying is that if you are really set on finding pics, look around at other hulls too.

    You're right. My first boat was a '71 Weiman. My buddy had a '72 Glencoe "Cutlass". Both were outboards and the hulls were identical.

    I live in Ojai. If you want I can get the pictures from your uncle and scan them in for you. Just a thought.

    Wow, I think that is a first, someone with wayyy more knowlege than me telling me I am right! Maybe that is a sign my newb smell is going away, probably not though, more than likely just lucky.
