Re: GV10 Stop and Start Project

Mike, Surtees use Bostik ISR 70-03 to secure their windscreens ( ask me how I know...) - attaching toughened glass to Ali. It is wonderful stuff and with your discount you'll get it from Blacks for about $20 a cartridge.
It's black, sticks very well, is tough, but can be removed.

Re: GV10 Transom modifications for shaft length

Just to raise a slightly contrary perspective...I built mine to suit a 15" and found that it was prone to getting water over the transom when coming off the plane. I built it up (to full design height) when putting a new 15hp on - vast improvement! In others words fit your motor, but higher is better!

Re: GV10 on roof rack

When rigged right it is relatively easy. I can now get it up there on my own without any difficulty and surprisingly without a winch. Now just need to tidy up the frame and make it a bit quicker to fit! Cheers http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/88450/2019-01-20_15_03_10.jpg http://gallery.ba...

Re: GV10 Strake length

Maybe cut a length of 2" aluminum tube in half and weld that in? Will need to be bent to the hull shape.
Alternative maybe a length of 1" square? Either would be fine on the feet...

Re: GV10 on roof rack

Thanks Capeman, if I chose to proceed to a final version, a 12v ATV winch will be used to provide the muscle!

GV10 on roof rack

Has anyone used a roof rack to transport their GV10? At 69 kilos is a bit of a load to get up onto the roof of a 2 metre high vehicle. I copied a system that involves standing the boat up on its transom in the process of getting onto the roof. Found that it works well in prototype form and can be ma...

Re: GV10 Strake length

Hi Mike, I formed the stiffners by glassing over half a waterpipe foam insulation tube... To make it easier on the feet.

I would also keep the outside of the hull clean, is no strakes. Its handling is great as designed, and I have had it flat out with one pob and 15hp.

Cheers
