    Trued Hull

    I've spent the last month trueing and cleaning up the hull of my GPR. I paid alot of attention to the rear, especially around the pump inlet. If anyone has any suggestions or other changes I should make before I paint it, please let me know.

    The last picture is a little bling - I finished painting the water box and free flow...

    if you have the transom plate off, make sure to seal it properly and make sure it is fully up against the stops.

    Looks good! There’s a lot of work and attention to detail that goes into truing a hull.

    I'd love to do that, but can't bring myself to pulling the engine just to true the hull. When I send my tired old engine off to Lowell for a freshening, I may do this.

    Mike,

    I used Rust-Oleum Hamered paint. I've used it on other projects, and it hold up great. I just sanded everything down with 220, and painted a couple of light coats. I reused the pump shoe inserts, and they look like new.

    BTW - your ski looks great. The colors are right on, especially the black. I'll be painting mine in the next couple of weeks, and I'm hoping it looks as good!

    fullboogie, you can flip the ski with the motor in it. After you get it flipped, take a block of wood on a jack and jack it up till it touches the head, then lift it up just a little more to give it that support it needs. Just an idea for ya.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the ideas. Based on feedback from the Fountain Boys, it's back to grinding and reshaping. Hopefully I'll have the hull done in the next few weeks. After all this work, I better pick up some actual speed improvements.
