Hey Nigel,
If you find a Glastron 150 you have to put a V4 on it. (No, not a Super Strangler)

I'm going greater that you could ever imagine..   ;D

Now, what are you going to do with that rig may I ask? It certainly won't be a go fast boat like your other boats you currently have, that's for sure.

It was just one of those epiphany moments, I was wondering what I should mount the Jono on, and then it came to me, Gt150. Ski raced a V143/85 Merc in the 70s, was a great little rig, quicker than the Spyders!
                    Glad to hear your travelling well, N

Your V4 would be an unbelievable match on a Haines 17R. I would really love to find one of those hulls and have it professionally repaired and restored!
That would be a great ski and social boat.
