    You should be able to get it up on that v pad. Try it first could have some adverse effects on handling all round. Sometimes a bit od compromise is the best.

    I have no doubt about getting it to, and keeping it on the pad.


    I have a combined 14 yrs on two 24’ Sonics and keeping them on their pads, and they were round ��

    Only fast pad is a flat pad.

    Why does the lip of the pad look a little wonky on the left side? I am sure it must just be the angle of the pic?

    It’s primer showing through the white gel coat I burned through when buffing the transom before installing the bracket.
    Doh!

    Well at least that's an easy fix.

    No clue.
    W/the pool/deck project going on, my free time is spread a bit thin these days.

    Ive done enough of these projects to know that if you stop at 80% and start using/running it, you never finish it.


    Ive wanted one of these all my life so if it takes another yr....., I’m OK w/that.

    I had my deck helper help me carry in my patio door/mold to start laying up the pad for the bottom.

    I know, I know.

    I didn’t have the supplies I needed to lay up the pad on the door so after scratching my head a bit and not wanting to waste a rain day, (BTW, tomorrow is one too) I built a mold.
    If my thinking is clear and my math is close, should be a pc of cake.

    Mold is 8’ and spit balling is looking like 11’ - 12’ overall which is way shorter than I thought.

    Ill start laying it up tomorrow.
