Glastron Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Glastron is a boat manufacturing company and was one of the first manufacturers of fiberglass boats. Bob Hammond, Bill Gaston, Bob Shoop, and Guy Woodard founded this company on October 14, 1956 in Austin, Texas. It was sold to Genmar Holdings in the 1990s and manufacturing was moved to Minnesota.
Shelby Sullivan for Go Down Size mentioned the 4 Most-Common Problems with Glastron Boats, "Problems with The Transom: Unfortunately, one of the main issues found in older Glastron boats is with the transom. While this could be an awesome place to display the name of your seaworthy ship, it can become a rotten piece in need of repair. A Weakening Deck: Much like the transom, many of the earlier Glastron models also had significant issues with the deck. The deck itself can weaken over time, but the damage is usually far more extensive than that. Most people found that their deck problems also applied to their weakened and rotten stringers. Cracks in the Hull: One of the more significant issues that potential boat owners will face with their Glastron boats is a cracked and blistered hull. The hull of the ship is designed to keep water out of the boat, but you may find that its ability to do so is extremely over time. Some Glastron models didn’t stand up well to constant use, and sometimes weakened because of it. The Spark in Your Engine: Is there anything worse than planning for a day on the water just to find out that your engine won’t roar? You put the key in the ignition and hear crickets, the ominous sound that signals that your boat is dead in the water. This is likely indicating that you have some sort of electrical issue with your boat."
