Thread: GPR Hulls

Can you put a 1300 hundred in a 800 hull? I found a local shop who has a 800 hull and he claims that you can. I would assume I would have to change the display too, but that is not too big of a deal.
Does anyone know for sure?

Kirk, the plates in the stringers that the motor mounts bolt to will be in the wrong place in the front. Other than that I think they are the same. It probably wouldnt be worth it to move the plates and reglass it. JMHO

Maching metal adapter plates is one thing, but I am NOT getting into any glass work.

It would be a nice sleeper though! Especially a 75 mph GP800R.

Pistonwash says that the location for moving the plates is already scribed into the engine stringers.
So basically you need to drill the front two holes, then find some way to move those internal plates forward.
My thought was to drill a 1-2" hole, up near the final location, and use it to move the internal plates forwards. Once you have them in place and riveted in place, just use expanding foam to cover the holes back up.

This 800R I found is in excellent shape considering it has been sitting outside. Even has a single galvanized trailer and I could get this for a very good price. Is even still has some engine parts. Hell, the more I think about it, the more I think I need to go pick it up and sell for a conversion ski.
Anyone want a 800R hull for a conversion?
