Topic: 18 Gallon Belly Tank for GV17?

Hi! Had a look on my metric plans. It says that the tank should be between
frame C and D. I don't know, but I beleive that is in the CG area.
I know Jacques wrote somewhere that it should be in the console or under the foredeck. Personally, because of lack of money, I will use portable tank.

BTW which layout for the interior do you choose? The dual console bowrider style. I'm trying to decide between fixed seat boxes (more storage) and pedastal seats with, bases in several locations (more flexibility). I'm leaning towards fixed seats at the consoles and pedastals elsewhere, but we'll s...

Whats left for me, is the deck, gunwales, console and the paintjob.. Congratulations with your new engine. If I had a...

Hi

You are not alone... :) And personally, everytime things seem to go smooth I always have to take a break to see if I forget, or screw up something....

Be patient, and build on.

Are you thinking about leaving the bow open or are you going to deck it over? If you deck it over it will look fine with the windshield you've drawn. If you leave the bow open you need a walk through style windshield so you can use the bow area. We had an open bow boat much like the gv-series when ...

windshield GV17

One more thing: Can I shorten the motor well 4 inches to increase cockpit length? Comment...
