converting a 15' cav utility to a fine gentleman racers

Post by joe ben » Fri Sep 11, 2020 7:38 pm

I just purchased a project boat that is in great shape. 1955 cav 15' utility V15-467 with a rebuilt Mr. B motor with zero hours.
I have a restored 1957 cav V15-853 that I have enjoyed for 11 years. I bought the 55 mostly to have the motor as a spare but now have a clean hull with all the hardware. I saw a pic of a racer built from a set of plans from a 1935 popular mechanics magazine.
I THINK i want to take my blank hull and drop a V8 in it to make me a Gentlemans racer. Anyone done this ?? Will it work? Thanks for any feedback.
