No it's def. not you, it is a pile alright! But what do you expect for 100 quid!!! Sorry I just happen to like the old ones
If I didn't already have a garden full of projects I would like a glastron project, a CVX 16

Burty, that boat looked clean I thought...

I've nowt against Glastrons, or any other vintage boats (I own one remember, the P28 is a 1984 design), I just reckon that one's a Nail.

If i remember correctly,

Glastrons suffered from two points:

One the funky metalflake gelcoats were a nightmare.

Two, the fibreglass construction was questionable.

Wouldnt touch one with a Barge Pole.

It was the sharp that I was talking about there, not the tron!

I'm not feeling a lot of love for the poor tron
