Love the post. I've seen these pics/videos before when looking at old Glastrons.
Those 60's/70's Glastrons were great boats. And their cathedral hulls would do really well on the chop of these central TX lakes. At the time - the lake was known as Granite Shoals, but is now Lake LBJ. That's where we keep our '06 Launch 22. Our 31' Express is on Lake Travis.
There is a community on Lake LBJ known as Sunrise Beach. A little hotel & restaurant, with a ships store. We frequent it every time we're on the lake because, well, it's the only place to buy beer or have a drink! Story has it that the hotel (looks like an older 'lodge') was used by the Secret Service as their base of operations when LBJ wanted to play with his 'Navy'.
Another interesting thing about your post was seeing Bob Hammond - My first boat that I owned as an adult was a '79 19' Hammond Seville. Pictures of it here -http://www.classicglastron.com/79hm-v1975.htm.
Mine didn't come with the model. That cuddy would get hotter than hades for those summer time extracurricular activities...if you know what I mean
I do remember that wild upholstery pattern though! LOL Ha.
After the Hammond, I purchased a Classic 190, built by Don Higgenbotham / Higgenbotham Boat Company, here in Austin. I'm told that Don was a contract manufacturer that built some Glastron boats back in the day. Both the Hammond & the Classic suffered from the common construction flaw of the day - using untreated wood for deck & furniture construction vs. man made materials, which meant that over time, regardless of how much care I took in drying the boats out, I ended up replacing the interiors! The Hammond had significant metal flake in the gel coat, which was impossible to bring back to life when it was eaten up by the elements.
Sort of ties it together for me. A trip down memory lane.
