This is an Evan Gatehouse GV10, that I modified.
The cat is a Skoota 36, you can see more on the power boats forum.

Was the mod to keep it short enough to fit? Have you had it running in the water yet?

I did the hull lines and arrangements of a dinghy of my design, but I din't felt confident enough to complete the design, so I modified the GV10 to my needs.
If the GV10 could fit between the cat's hulls, I would't modified her. I didn't had her in the water yet.

Very nice work. It "looks right" so I'm sure it will work ok.

Is it still 10' long?

Evan
Sorry for the late reply, I just saw it now.
The LOA is the same and she was build as per plans, I am using a 20 hp Suzuki, (same weight as the 9 hp), because with the modifications I did increase the weight.
I realise that is to much power, but then again I can allways trotle back.
