Please get your hotel, marina slips, and RV park reservations booked ASAP. There will be 2 concerts events, one on Friday the 16th and one on Sat the 17th. Most likely there will also be the Music On the Mississippi like last year with a band playing in the marina (free to attend).

All reservation's are under Classic Glastron.
15 Hotel rooms are reserved. Book early!
4 Marina slips are reserved, 48ft x 18ft slips, $20 a boat for the slips (4-6 boats a slip depending on size) If you want your own slip then you will pay the rate for the slip. Reserve NOW. There is already a limited number of slips available (17).
3 RV sites have been reserved.
There is also plenty of tent. Camping available as well.

In speaking with the staff the marina & hotel will most likely sell out immediately once the concert announcement has been made. Announcement is going to be made sometime with in the next 30 days.

Hope to see you all again this year!!!!

Jeff is just filling in the hook. By laying a straight edge on the bottom of the boat you can see how much is there. On my 23 resto I ground out the back trailing edge and then filled the rest. Since Jeff isn’t doing the floor again he can’t add additional layers to replace grinding some out. He is just filling it to get it flat/ straight. Think of hook as a built in trim tab. He is also extending the center 2 strakes all the way to the transom. From the factory they stopped about 18” from the transom.

First step was remove gel coat to bare fiberglass. He is then using fiberglass filler( kitty hair). Then finish with regular filler (think bondo), epoxy prime, and paint/ gel.

     Don't get me wrong, I love going fast, sometimes with a measure of uncertainty of fate, but you must temper that bravado somewhat depending on your planned usage.     If go fast, all the time, only you in the boat, is your plan, then Id look beyond 200hp.   Taking family for watersports and cruising, I'd opt for an outboard more in line with the recommendations of the boat manufacturer, plus a bit of wiggle room.   Another issue rarely discussed is insurance.   What does your friendly insurance agent say about overpowering a boat beyond the manufacturers recommendations?   I hung a V-6 175 HP Johnson on a CVX-16, and my American Family agent about lost his mind.   I ran it anyway, needless to say, it was a handful.  I didn't run it very long that way, only for some testing.   Sold the boat with a 115 Force, really a lot nicer family craft in that trim.   Still did upper 40's with the 115.   

     Good luck to ya!

Jeff, for those of us (me) that doesn't fully understand the process, can you describe the steps you are taking which result in the hook removal.

Even with the 150 HP motor .. Make sure all wood and glass in transom and stringers are good.

There are guy's with 225 HP V6 Johnson on GT150's !

Ron has a 150 HO Evinrude on his CVX16, with some very nice transom/stringer up grades, which get low 70's.
His friend is doing a C500 with a 200 HP Merc.
