1974 CV-16
« on: December 25, 2019, 11:41:22 AM »
Hello !  I am a new member here and have a 1974 CV-16 that I have owned since new !  I am taking care of her needs that 46 years have taken from her. Everything was pretty good but for the transom I just replaced. I need to do some metal flaking to repair what was fixed. Does anyone know what color flake will match the green they used in'74??

Thank you for any information you mite have!

I raised the transom height 2Ē for the prop Iím running on my 115hp Mercury....prop is a 14x22 super cup prop. It now puts my cavitation plate even with the bottom.

You could also try vintage flake. He sells stuff for old snowmobiles.  I bought mine from him he is the only one I could find that carried square flake. Most likely that is what is on your boat.

Is this the company you got yours from Jeff ?

I have my cavitation plate is about 2 inches above bottom of hull, works pretty good.
Also running a 22P Laser II prop, getting 52 to 54 mph / GPS.
