Default OT: 1965 Glaspar
Re:: At least I was working on something!   

Bought a sixtieen foot '65 Glaspar with 35 hp motor. The interior needed redone and the cable steering was a mess. Put a new push/pull steering system in that I found new, in the box, on CL for $100 (lucky find as it was the correct length). Then you gotta have tunes on a boat! I wanted to be able to take the tunes to the beach. I built a new rear panel for the boat with 2 Pyle marine speakers. For portability I built the rest of the system in an old cooler I had. All components are Pyle marine. A 200w amp with a 1/4" jack run by a lawn mower battery. In the boat, the cooler sits between the speakers on the rear panel (cooler to rear panel speakers via quick connectors).The thing sounds awesome! With the boat running wide open on the water the system is loud and clear. My kids also love to take the cooler when they go hang out with friends at the park.

Just a little something to show that while I wasn't building VWs I have been building vintage stuff. It has been good to get back on the YellowFunk project recently though.

Nice to see an old classic back on the water. I love the "cooler!" (It really speaks to me...sorry) Nice work!

That boat almost looks to small for a 35 HP engine, but then again it could just look small in the picture, how big of a boat is that??

I like the cooler as well, I built one similar to that years ago, I made the box out of wood & I used a 12 volt converter rather than a battery, I wish I'd have used a battery instead so it could have been used anywhere, mine needed a 120 V outlet

The boat is 16'. I am looking for a bigger motor. The 35hp makes it a nice cruiser and can handle mild tubing.

Convert it to an in-board/out-board with a 1600DP w/kads!
