    1965 Glastron Jetflite V143 Yamaha 130HP 2-stroke Turbo 21P s/s prop + jack plate

    Shot with a GoPro Hero 4 in 2K 60FPS mode. Stills from Pentax K-50 and 35mm f2.4 prime lens + a Samsung Note 3 cell phone pic or two.

    Still working out the wrinkles - manual jackplate set to highest point with a 1988/89 Yamaha 130HP motor (25" shaft) with 130-132PSI across all four cylinders plus a brand new Turbo 21P 3-blade prop and new Baystar hydraulic steering plus new Yam 703 controls.

    Boat has brand new transom, stringers and floor - just needs new paint after Labor Day. It is a handful to drive, but that is the way I wanted it to be!!!

    Wow! Never even thought it was possible to convert one into V8/v-drive - Crazy!

    Will do, it is badly in need of new paint. I may also further reinforce transom in the Fall. Pretty thrilled with the 21P prop as an all arounder. Also plan to do nicer tach/speedo/trim gauge and tidy up the cockpit.

    Nice project you got going there Please post more videos / pics ! Im very interested to see whats the performance/handling on this setup, since I have the same boat and planning to get yamaha 115 hp w jackplate n other goodies.
    Got all the parts for it, needs just new transom/floor and reinforcements + nice paint.

    I am hoping to do a retrospective video this fall of what I have done to this hull - I have owned it for 21 years now and this Yamaha 130HP is the third and hopefully last motor I have upgraded to.

    I also painted the hull 20 years ago, replaced the floor twice, stringers once and transom once - I may further reinforce the transom in the fall. If/when I do the update video I will post it here. After 20 years the amateur level spray gun paint job is in major need of being recoated and there are some rough areas and holes drilled in fiberglass that I want to smooth over before repainting it again.
