Well now, that is an interesting find. Very unusual bow fitting. What model Glasspar is it? My take on it.... First, the year would be 1955 or early '56 because that bow fitting lists two plants, Santa Ana and Nashville. Second, if the length in the ad is correct at 14', then it would have to be a Lido, but I don't think any Lido had that rounded a bow. :unsure: So my SWAG is that it is a Balboa (12' 6" LOA). :whistle:

Possibly measured centerline rather than around the gunnels. I can remember growing up the different opinions of how a boat should be measured for registration purposes vs sales purposes.

I'm thinking that's a pretty good guess, Jerry. Don't run across very many Balboa's very often, and would be great if one our members picked it up.

Funny how the owner wants to keep the bow light. I'm always surprised at what people collect.

Thanks for posting, Jack!

George,

I think Jack should pick it up. A small runabout like the Balboa would nicely round out his fleet. :lol:

Gentleman I agree with you that it is most likely a Balboa however I disagree with who should own it, I have more than I can do not and I believe that since George B has no apparent projects it would most easily be accommodated by him. Jerry had his, and I have both of mine so its only right that George step up.
