1987 Canadian Edition (Hydrostream) Valero V-bottom pad!!!!

Post by rigaud » Feb 08, 2018 12:05 pm

Hi!!
I purchased from a friend a Valero with V-bottom 2 years ago. The pad was worked on with resin and it was done badly, it's an 87'. Could someone let me know if it was a flat pad or concave.....hooked or not? Also any recommendations on what's the best shape on the pad for these boats. I have a Johnson 150GT, nose cone with low water pick up, 27P DAH Chopper worked over with heavy cupping. Just need some guidance.

Thanks
John B.

The pad and hull of the Valero is the same as a V-King.

The pad is flat, not concave, and should run straight - no hook or wedge.

Thank you.

I'll be flipping it to work the pad.
