Yep, sounds like an original trailer if its stamped for a CVX-16.  Cool.

Are they looking for a 16 digit VIN?  Like I said, my DMV accepted the 5 digits stamped on my trailer mostly because of the age of the trailer...said that was fine.

There are no "Blueprints" for any of our boats, but all are built the same way.
Most will start rippin' it apart and note how it was put together.
Some of the CVX18 thread might be close to how your is made ..
Search YouTube for "Friscoboater" should be a few by him.

You'll have to make some chooses on wood or composite and which resin to use .. But how you use them is about the same.
Most have used cardboard or pink insulation board to make forms.
I'll post some threads for reading ..

Hi - I see lots of documentation of hull floor replacement with outboards, but little to nothing for boats with I/O. If you have done this, please share pictures or your post. I'd like to do this boat right and learn from others along the way.

I gotta pull the motor after a catastrophic valve failure. I actually found a post on here from the guy I bought the boat from about the cylinders being stuck and he was trying to rotate the engine - as witnessed by the corrosion in the middle of the cylinder walls I have found after pulling the head...

So while the motor is out, id like to put a new floor in!

The problem is wear and play forms where the pinion pin goes through the upper part of the gimbal.

General Discussion / MC1 Steering Play

MC-1 I have steering play is in my Gimble ring I believe. I see all kinds of stuff about repairing these for Alpha drives but little for these MC1 drives or "pre-alphas". Anyone have experience? I will have the motor out so that won't be an issue.

I tried to tighten the pinch bolt on the steering arm from the inside of the boat, but it was tight. AND I don't think there was a nut or anything on top of the pin to tighten.

Thanks in advance!
