Well the CV 16 has been sitting in the garage with junk piled on it since the beginning of June I guess.
Made some space in the garage

decided I should flip it over and check to see if it has the infamous strake cracks.
Both sides have fractures in the gelcoat, I assume it must go all the way through or at least the layup must be week there.

A close-up of the starboard side itís the worst of the two

Going to pick up at 8 foot straight edge tomorrow so I can get an idea of what I need to do to get the hook out, then will flip it over and start grinding again

I chased cracks like that on our 23. I stopped chasing them when I got to the last layer of glass.....I needed something to use as a base.

Must be a common Glastron problem from the 70s boats.
My V179 and the CVZ-18 both show racks along the strakes. If I replace the stringers in the V179 this spring I am going to add some reinforcement layers inside the hull.

Hook is not too bad, 1/16 in most places cept outer stb strake is 0.2

Stringer and fillers between motor mounts and middle strake are bedded in

Stringer tabbed in

Floor marked and cut

Spacers added to raise floor and stringer height adjusted

The material I have for the floor is only 7/16 and I wanted it flush with the top of the strake cutout.
Also figured dimensions for composite fillers for the top strake (I donít want that crease in the floor

in an effort to locate placement of extra martial under the floor to accommodate screwing the seat bases in i have discovered this CV16 appears to have less space that the GT150 had :(

That monster V8 has to occupy space somewhere right?  Maybe consider just one set of seats, the rest storage?  I like the look of the back-to-back seats, and yours look to be in great shape.  Maybe jump seats alongside the engine cover as second set?   IDK, tough call.

Our current thought is to make the seats a little smaller, similar to the size of the ones in the GT150.
I think moving away from the back to back seats it came with would be The wrong Way to go.

The SS has jump seats but the V8 donít have enough space so it has steps.

Make them Benny and Willy jump seats?  Look like steps to us?  Deck carpet, and storage underneath?  Maybe make the B2B seats into a jump seat rear facing?  With your talent I'm certain it will be a neat solution.

Only the CV19SS had jump seats .. guessing that's what you meant by "SS" ..
The engine cover and stern on the V8 are different then the CV16SS,  but never noted how different ..

Some CV16 outboards came with GT160 seats.
Gives you an idea of what room you would gain and look of two buckets.

I did mean CV 16 SS...
But I guess I was wrong about that I thought I remembered JasonĎs boat having jump seats in it. I obviously have a bona fide case of CRS.

Floor is in and outer strakes are filled

This is the under side of the floor showing extra material for screwing down seats and engine cover
