Re: Aussie Belle

Hi Jamie
Curious as to what thickness you use for your back seat base.

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Tom, Undecided about the bilge blowers. Probably mount the blowers in the engine compartment and run ducting down the sides to the aft section. As far as cowls probably 2 forward and 2 back on the engine compartment with 2 back facing on the stern but open to advice. Being held up by the tiller arm....

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Thanks Bill. Yes I have a site from Butch and they will sell single tips. Tom, being on the side I won't worry about a false tip on the other side. Logic being you will only see one side at a time. If I was going to run them out the back I would have split them, so as to have some symmetry. A bit Ob...

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Hi Tom
Great exhaust system. So clean and simple. I'll be running my exhaust out the side but further back and only on one side as I am running a catalytic motor with only one exhaust outlet. It just seemed simpler than splitting the system. Could you post the site for your exhaust tips please.

Looking good. I love this part of the build when you first see the true lines of the boat. It's like a skeleton. I think it is the repetition of the frames and battens. Yes the chine is always a problem child!

Welcome to the site from another Aussie builder. You have Alan (ozzieboat) from Logan who is very approachable. For me it is the build not so much the having. It has been really rewarding. It has taken longer than I thought and cost more than I thought but worth the time and money.

Re: Ski-Tow...Peg is still turning heads!

The Johnson makes it! It just wouldn't be the same with a modern motor.

Re: Tucker's Squirt

It looks too big for this to help but maybe you could wet down the joint area and hopefully swelling will close up the gap a bit.

Re: Tahoe 23

Yes Carl. That was my logic. The only down side is that in certain areas I will have to sand back the paint so as to glue on backing blocks etc and then touch up with paint. Maybe you can epoxy on to 2 pack Poly Paint, but I would rather take it back to the epoxy sealing coat underneath.

Re: Tahoe 23

Did a test fit of the motor and it ended up not sitting as high as I thought it would. Top of engine beds about 20mm (7/8") above the top of the stringers. May even get it down a little lower with the final fitting of engine beds as I have had to cut away two frames to make clearance of sump and sha...

Re: Engine exhausts and water intake

Thanks folks for your replies. I guess I will make a final decision when I drop in the motor. Did a test fit and had to cut away a frame for the sump but the motor should be lower than the hatch which was one of my concerns. Making up reinforcement for the cut away frame and working on the engine mo...

Re: Engine exhausts and water intake

The PCM with catalytic convertor has only a single exhaust outlet. I still want 2 exhaust ports for symmetry. Might be a bit obsessive / compulsive. Any reason I can't put in a divider in the exhaust line? Any thing I need to consider?
