Default Possible to convert Ventus Ct to Cm?

If your glider has Experimental registration, you can try it yourself or
find people who have the skills.* There are such folks at Moriarty and,
I'm sure, other places as well.* Having read earlier in this thread that
the engine and extension mechanism are the same, I don't see why it
couldn't be done.* The prop may have longer blades and require a bigger
bay opening and you may need more fuel capacity.

I would expect the factory to say, "No".* They don't want any part of
such a modification which could open them up to liability.

Yep, possible other factors.

Which is why I am asking for some advice.
I was hoping to get some feedback from someone who may have in depth knowledge of S.H. Ventus.

I did see the one response above that per S.H. it's a definite no.

So I'll close out this question.
