    Try this one, at least you can see the Italian flag on the bottom.

    Yep, that's it Bob ... a Glastron "G" emblem at the top and Italian flag at the bottom.

    I think there is a better color pic of the red boat somewhere, but I haven't found it

    The only red one that I have come across is this Glastron/Carlson. It is sad that nobody has a good close-up of the Glastron/Molinari logo. That boat made history in it's day and now it seem to be forgotten.

    No, I'm thinking of the red trimmed Glastron full tunnel

    Look at what they used for their logo printed in the free space above the boat cowl.....go figure. Is that what is called "hiding in plain sight"?

    Still Hidden

    The problem is, the logo shown at the top of the page is for a Glastron/Carlson... not a Glastron/Molinari.

    I have found enough reference to know that the word Glastron is "reversed" out of black to the left of the flags/logo and Molinari is overprinted in black on white stock...on the right side of the "tri-stack" of Glastron logo, American flag & Italian flag.

    In small type, under the word "Glastron" I'm pretty sure it says: "A Conroy Company" and "Austin,Texas". Can't be sure 'till I see better reference.

    Under the word "Molinari" I'm guessing it says "Built by Carlson" and "Anaheim, California".

    Once again, I won't know 'til I find a good photo.

    So...the search continues. Thanks for the help.

    Glastron Molinari Decal

    The image submitted by Willabee (Boat #74) clearly shows that "Molinari" made it to the ride hand side of the decal. The "top flag" was the Glastron logo, the middle flag was USA and the bottom flag was Italian. I'm wondering if the Glastron / Carlson decals were inter-mixed with new Glastron Molinari hulls coming out of the molds? Boat #74 is the only photo prioving that the "Molinari" was actually in a decal. The 1970 catalog graphic only depicts the technical partner ship between Hammond and Molinari. The only place in the catalog showing a "racing decal" that was readable is the side shot of the full race Carlson. I don't think that most of the racers running Glastron Molinaris ever kept the decal on their boats, or if the boats were actually sold with the decals?

    Joe Fielder would be the expert in that matter ... my suspicion is that only a few had the decal

    More Evidence

    I have found a copy of an old Powerboat magazine (January, 1971) that carried an article "Anatomy of the Tunnel Hull" showing a single engine Glastron-Molinari being built and shipped from the Carlson factory in California with the decal in place.
    The photo clearly shows Molinari on the right side of the stack of logos/flags in the decal...I just can't make out what it says below the word Molinari.
    Thanks for all of the help....I know we'll get to some definitive reference.

    Great Photo...perfect reference

    Thanks Mark for the great photo...the best reference I could ask for.
    Are anyone's eyes good enough to read what it says over the word Molinari?
    I can read everything else OK....it looks like it might be written in cursive...
    Thanks again Mark for the great find!
