after closer inspection of his doubled up pictures... I just realized the motor's in front of the driver!

the drivetrain's worth the $1225.00 that it's at now!

and you throw in a trailer too, hmmmm

I think Bond used a MC to do a jump scene in one of his movies. Not sure which movie. Was a small outboard. :steering:

The boat in the above post looks like a joke. "Tournament"?????

AWSA RIGHT? LOL :uglyhamme

I remember when Centurion introduced this boat. They tried to grab the wakeboarding crowd. I think they missed.

Glastron literature identifies the Live and Let Die boat as a GT150 with a Evinrude Starflite 135hp engine.The year was 1973.
Interesting to note is that the '73 catalog lists the max hp of the GT150 at 90hp. The
GT150 is best distinguished from the CV-16 and GT160 by the transoms. The CV-16& GT150 have a spoiler type transom while the GT150 has the opposite slant at the top of the transom. In the famous picture with the cop pointing the gun, you can see the only modifications to the hull: two small black
rails that kept the boat level side to side on the ramp. The only other main modification was the central mounting of the steering wheel and a single centrally mounted seat for balance. The jump was performed over 100 times to get everything right before the actual take. Glastron built and sold 26 boats to the film company for the film.
