I recently bought a cover (off eBay) for the GT-150, and I'm very pleased with the quality and fit.  It's a place called  "Vortex Direct", free shipping and very reasonable prices ($70).  It's not a true "custom fit", but seems to fit well and very well made.

Hard to see in the 1974 brochure, but sure looks like they have CV stickers on all Carlsons.
Both stickers are available from members of CGOA.
SO ... It's just a matter of which you like best ...

MarkS thanks for the link, I am ordering one today!
Hyperacme, I think I am going with a new GT sitcker. Pretty sure I saw them listed in one of the parts threads on here... Thanks!

Hopefully I can meet Jerry later today and pick up his dual helm steering set up, Thanks for all the advice/help from everyone! I am really enjoying this site!!

Your 75 G/C should have the CV sticker, the older cv16's before 1974 had a GT sticker if they were an outboard, the CV16 I/O's before 74' had the CV sticker.

The CV-16 was available in blue in 1973 and came with the GT emblem. You should have a hull number on the outside of the transom.

His has the 74-76 dash. That's why I say it's a 75 as it has the new style dash panel and it's blue with white.

1973 dash:


1974 dash:

You have a good looking boat.  Does that stern sit low in the water with that motor?

The Smurfs are blue and white, go by names like Poet Smurf, Greedy Smurf, etc. ... how 'bout coming up with something like "Speedy Smurf" ??

thats nice.be safe with the 235hp and the jack plate.watch the transom.be safe airing that beast out.(my two cents)-run a hydraulic steering kit like teleflex seastar pro,any performance boat that runs over 60mph should have it.the down fall is it is costly about 650.00 on sale on line.i had it installed on my baja the year before last,steers like a dream. one thing you cant put a price on is safety.

I think MOJO post is old.  We talked to him last fall on our river run out of Red Wing down to Alma.  Said he had sold the boat was looking for a inboard CVX18 or an Intimidator.
Not sure how serious he was. He has a crusier that he slips in Red Wing.

You're right, Jeff.  I didn't look at the date - just saw it pop up as something with a new comment.

Sweet Ride!!!
I have a cv-16 I need to restore, I also would need an engine too, wonder if I can use such a large power hog, on my boat, without getting caught and ticketed from the lake patrol because of over powering the cv-16
not sure that i can afford such a large power hog, but would be nice to know if i have that option
thanks

It would be a good idea to keep it around the 115 HP range.
CV's are a wild ride at 50 plus mph !

I got you! over powering = Danger
I will take your advice on the 115 HP range
I have a lot of research to do
