Starting GV11

Post by PlanoDano » Thu Jan 31, 2019 11:40 pm

I am starting a GV11.
Plan is to build the hull for planing with > 10hp. I will glass bottom panels with 12oz bi-ax inside and out. Planning on using bi-ax tape on keel seam and frame seams, debating on bi-ax or 9oz tape for upper/bottom seam. Currently plan on glassing upper panels with 9oz on the outside only.

Hi, welcome. Looking forward to watching another GV take shape. Good choice on the GV11, I built a GV10 but should probably have gone for the GV11. Looks like you’re off to a good start.

I am giving that boat strong consideration as a tender/liferaft.

Looking forward to the build.

Biaxial tape for the seams please.

Fallguy - unless you're carrying a crowd, the GV10 is plenty. We had 6 adults in a GV11 and that was full, 4 adults in GV10 was full

Is this boat crying for 15hp or would 9.9hp bee sufficient?
Would typically be fishing by myself, sometimes with company of 1 other person.
