  • Here is a 16' GP with bottom paint,it looks like it follows the waterline

    i know we covered this subject before, but I found this boat today and thought it might generate some discussion. I think this is a 16' with volvo I/O. The bottom paint is just above the top of the outdrive. My 17' Mercruiser I/O top is also at the waterline. I guess what I am saying this boat/bottom paint job is pretty much what my boat is doing, front to back.

    I was going to mark mine in the water with a grease pencil to see where the line is.

      That is a pretty severe deviation from parallel! Definately could use some ballast. Here is a pic of my 2100 for comparison.

        Your 21 has more flotation surface at the stern than that 16. A quick look at the 80's GP catalog shows the 16's sitting and riding fairly level. That waterline in the photo could come from full fuel, aux. fuel tank, a pair of batteries, Downriggers, big kicker, and a pair of hefty fishermen.
        The cruise liner QE2 moves only six inches for each gallon of diesel fuel that it burns.

            Must be those high performance spark plugs weighing it down.

              Here's JV Junior, a 16-footer with a 50 hp outboard. She sits right on the lines:




              Cardinal (21') is just a tad stern-heavy, as seen here with just my son in the cockpit:



              Same Volvo-Penta outdrive as in the original post.

                Maybe had water in the hull when he marked it before painting or a heavy ice chest.

                  He may have missed the bow intersect a bit, but the outdrive on mine top is right at the waterline, even though I am in the boat hanging over the stern to see what things look like. My swim platform is also at the waterline.

                  It is almost as if the 17' boat was setup for an outboard and the optional I/O makes the boat look low in the back.

                  Given this issue I am tempted to raise the floor switch to a bow fuel tank and lighten up the wood stringers that may be a bit soggy. Note my fuel tank is large and looks like a non-factory install.
