General Boating / 2012 Glastron GT205 - owners manual
« Last post by mister880 on July 17, 2017, 10:51:18 AM »
Can someone point me in the direction of getting my hands on this owners manual? I contacted Glastron, they said look at their website. Well their website doesn't have this manual either.

Since your boat is a 2003, just wondering what kind of warranty there is?
The dealer maybe able to help you. I needed some specific info and emailed Glastron directly off their website. Got all my answers within a few days.
General Boating / transfer warranty to new owner??
« Last post by arnlaura on July 16, 2017, 02:10:55 PM »
We just bought a 2003 SX175 and we're told the warranty can be transferred to each new owner. Anyone know how I do this? Do I have to contact a dealer? I've searched the Glastron website and it was no help. It talked about the warranty but not how to transfer it. Maybe we don't do anything unless we need to take it in for something specific to be fixed... ?? Any thoughts?

We have the same boat. The bilge pump is directly under the engine.
Not sure about the oil. You should hardly ever have to add oil to the lower unit.
I have wondered about this as well; anyone with intimate knowledge of the process out there??

Ha, this is turning into a review...........Been out now several times and the 4.5 has been running great. Even though this GTS is similar to my last boat, it handles way different and all the little things a guy has to relearn. Love the boat, has a lot of room, storage, features. The colors stand out and it really does have that retro look when sitting on the water. This size boat with the 4.5 is a perfect fit.
So now just fooling around with the prop. Came with a Black Max 15 x 17, which I knew would be under propped. Now trying a Nemesis 4-blade 14 x 19P which is getting closer. Still over revs a little but at least I can find WOT and see where it's at. I don't run it at WOT, but use it for tuning, and like to have it set up for the max 4800. Accelerates and pulls hard through out the range. Pulled a couple tubes (200# each) and didn't even know they were back there.
Cruise control..........what a great idea. Set the throttle and never touch it again. Works great for pulling skiers, tubes, or just fooling around doing tight turns.
Hard to believe but dealer doesn't know what prop to use, so they are pretty much giving me what ever I want to try. I could live with this prop, but there's more to get out of her. I'll have to start recording rpms's, gps speeds to get it fine tuned.
Well it's back to the water, happy boating everyone  ;D

Can't attach a pic, but here it is listed on the Glastron website.

pretty much describes my situation. I had mine down to 100kb so that's not the problem. Thanks for your input.
