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?

Engine exhausts and water intake

So do I have this right?
1.You do not reduce your engine exhaust diameter. So if your motor has a 4 inch exhaust outlet then your exhaust system will be 4 inch all the way through.
2. You increase you water intake. So if your intake is 1 1/4 inch then your water pick up will be 1 1/2 inch.

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Tom
What sized ID are you using for your exhaust. 4" or are you reducing it and if so to what diameter?

Re: Tahoe 23

Well I have been working towards the engine mounting. Looked into my options for moving and lifting the motor. I ruled out an engine lifting crane as it would not give me the height clearance I required. Ruled out using the shed trusses as I wasn't sure they would handle the load and last thing I wa...

Loved that shot of the cutwater and bow. At first glance it is a bit hard to take in what's what.
