Old thread I know. I have one question. It looks like pvc tubing running from the console downward under the cockpit sole. Are those heated and bent or is it an illusion? Then what size are they 1.5" or 2"? And there look to be 4...what are they all for? Steering, throttle, wiring for radio, radar, gps/depthfinder, tach, what all are you running? Just planning ahead...thanks.

Yep lots of PVC needed.
1 2 or 2 1/2" for your mechanicals, steering, and throttle controls.
1 2" for electrical to the stern. For stereo, pumps, etc.
1 1 1//2 for fuel line from tank to motor
1 1 1/2 to the bow for electrical
Another from chargers to batteries.

Use electrical 90's as they are wider than plumbing 90's.

Probably a couple more I'm missing that CL can fill in. You can never have to few.

Good luck

Damn Larry, I sure hope you got a huge pile of cash for this one, because it's truly a work of art. I don't know how you let this one leave your property, I would have sold my house first before letting it go. I'm in awe. A beautiful design beautifully executed in every detail. Mike

Thanks Seaslug. I've seen your work and it's first class too. You've got me beat with hatches :D Dang man, you are good :!:

Yep, got a very nice pile of cash for this one, almost enough to buy a house :D It's got to be the most tricked out and expensive GF18 ever built :D Glad I don't have to build it again, don't have it in me. This will be my last build, says my body and my doctors :( No more, so got to end it on a high note anyway :!:
