1. What year did Grady White start building the SV2 Hull?

The SeaV2 hull design was implemented on Grady-White boats in the following sizes and years:
28 ft............1989
26 ft............1991
22-25 ft.......1992
208-209......1993
192.............1994
180.............1998

2. What is the Sea V2 hull?

A Continuously Variable Vee Means Soft and Stable
A SeaV2 hull design has no two places on the keel where the deadrise is the same. The vee continuously sharpens from the transom to the bow stem. A SeaV2 hull design with 20 degrees of deadrise at the transom will have around 30 degrees amidships--more than even the most radical older deep vee designs. The deeper vee forward means a softer ride at sea. Less vee at the transom coupled with wide chines provide stability at rest and when trolling.

I have a 1996 Seafarer and I would like to install a newswitch panel. Here is my question...are the switches pretty generic on the backside of the panel. I have looked online and would like to order a new panel with new switches. Any cautions I should be aware of?

Doing a little more research, the list of hulls with the SeaV2 design. Can someone provide any information on a 1991 204, and 1993 Spirit 175? Thanks

What about the 216 Grady-White Fisherman? Is it going to be only out for two years or more?

Strange, Grady seems to be very responsive. Perhaps you mean the marine shop you purchased from? I would make a separate post in the main General forum, detail what all you need and have tried and I bet you can get some better assistance.

I have a 1990 v1 hull seafarer 228g mine came with 2 tanks, but was swapped out at one point for a single 80 gallon tank, I think it is like 100 gallons.

Morning
Looking for some help . I have a 91 Seafarer 228 with two tanks .
I have a switch on the panel for the tanks .
My question is .
Does that switch operate a fuel pump? Or does it just let you know if tanks are full or empty just bought the boat and I love it my 2nd Grady just trying to figure things out thanks for the help

The switch is just for the reading of the fuel senders from each tank. There is a fuel valve that you change manually to switch between tanks. In my case, it is located in the transom area on the Port side. I have to remove a storage bin from the transom to access it. Not sure where it would be or the configuration for your model.
