Re: Tahoe 23

Been a while since my last post but I have been busy. As well as progress on the boat I have painted the exterior pf the house. So given that I guess I have made progress. The guards, prop strut and rudder port have been fitted. I chose not to run the guard around the transom but only down the sides...

Re: bow eye

Thanks for everyone's advice. I have the trailer plans from Glen L and a friend who is a pretty good welder so I guess when the time comes I can have the winch where-ever I want it. But I see the logic of having the bow eye a lot lower than I was thinking of placing.

Re: bow eye

I would prefer a deck cleat. It would make putting on a cutwater easier, but I guess if I went with a bow eye, the higher the better?

bow eye

Any guide to the positioning of the bow eye. Especially to the height for fastening to the trailer.

Re: Extending the Tahoe 23 to 24'2"

Great work Donn and I agree. The Tahoe has beautiful lines. I loved the skeletal effect before the planking went on to the hull.

Re: Extending the Tahoe 23 to 24'2"

Donn I know what it is like to have to sit on the bench for a while while you would rather be in the game. I'm of two minds about foam in the transom that you can never get to. But which ever way you go make sure you have thought through where your exhaust is located. I'm putting mine out the side l...

Re: Tahoe 23

Well after acouple of months doing house renovations I am back working on the boat and will soon fit the guards, prop strut and rudder log. Have bought a top bearing and safety collar for the rudder and ordered some timber for the deck battens. To all the American members I hope you have a great Ind...

Re: Matt's Geronimo

I was told when doing house renovations you can have it "level" or "look level". Rarely both!

Re: New Riviera build in the Netherlands

Hugo, What I think you will find is that in a lot of these boats the timber listed is a net size but what is used is actually a dressed size unless otherwisw stated. This is what is done in the "Tahoe" plans. So a 2 x 1 inch(50mm x 25mm) timber will end up being 1 3/4 x 3/4 (44mm x 19mm} or there ab...

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

Pawel,
Available from Glen-L in that size range are plans for the Belle Isle 23, Biscayne 22 and Tahoe 23. Have a look at those if you have not already.

Re: Key Largo build. Tahmoor (nr. Sydney) Australia

Rob I would assemble the frames first, then encapsulate. One thing I would do if I were building another boat would be to use filler blocks between the gussets in the bottom corner of the frames. It would just tidy off the frame and where they are exposed make them look more finished. Also you would...

Re: Key Largo build. Tahmoor (nr. Sydney) Australia

Hi Rob I used the Boatcraft Pacific products. I initally used the boat cote for encapsulating and added their thickener for gluing up. I had no issues with the product. But for gluing up I prefer to use their "epox-e-glue" which is a 2 part gel. With the liquid epoxies I find I break into a profuse ...

Re: Placement of guards on the Tahoe

Yes Bill, all the compound curves are part of the reason I decided not to take the guard across the back, but also I personally have not liked the look of ones I have seen done. Especially when they have been extended to form swimming platforms. It is my intention to have a stainless steel drop down...
