    Default CP 19' Gullwing

    Just wondering if some of you guys that have the gullwings could give me a little help with deciding where I should place the motor. I got this boat as a bare hull with only the shoe installed. It has been set back and had alot of bottom work done to it I beleive it was done by Bennet down in southern cal. I plan on putting the motor all the way back and just using a standard pto (double u joint) is this going to be a good starting point or should I be starting with the engine forward with a short driveline and work my way back. I am using a a/b stainless impeller with a droop and diverter. The power is a 496 chevy with around 575 hp. Any ideas on mph or et with this info. Just wondering about the mph and et stuff I know its hard to say but im getting close to getting it done and am really excited. Hope to make an njba event by the end of the year. Any info will be much appreciated thanks.

    whoever done the bottom work should tell you where to place the motor not internet guess'rs

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    So, if you blueprint the bottom yourself, who do you go to to ask?

    gullwings are actually pretty forgiven as far as where you place the motor. Just make the rail kit long enough so you can move it forward if you want to change it later. I've had everything from doulble joint to my boat now has a 12 1/4" driveshaft.

    I ran full back until I was running over 1200 hp then started to inch her foward bit by bit...these boats will hold and run perfect to 105+ with correct hardware and motor full back. and u get more seating room.
