    Hull Truing

    Just something I thought I would ask. Who does hull truing that is close to oklahoma city and how much cash is needed for such a venture? I have a guy that does speed boats and such but I would rather has a GPR pro do it than him.

    Post up!

    There is no reason that you cannot do it yourself..just take your time and don't mess with the chines when you are sanding.

    I personally know the guy who originally started the whole truing craze, he thinks it can be done.

    I believe EMPTY ,,,the motor and such would pull the bottom down flexing the hull ---no good-- you want it free of weight that flexes the hull
    what i bet (just a bet) is that you can do it without even flipping it over as long as it is gutted BUT who wants to lay on there back for hours on end(member name here hehe) and get white crap all over them from above them
    sorry to but in (casino post whore )

    Matt's right. the best way is motor out and upside down. It takes HOURS to do right, and if you were to pay it would be alot. I know I would charge at least 2k if I was doing it for someone.
