Re: Tahoe 23

Hi Tom I really was and am in two minds about painting the inside of the hull with bilge paint. At first I was just going to leave it epoxied. Not worried about UV as any timber exposed would be finished with a top clear coat (Will probably be 2 pack poly rather than varnish). Advantage to me is abi...

Re: Tahoe 23

That's my plan Bill. All the motor fit out, electricals, steerage etc and deck last. My knees can't seem to take what they use to.

Re: Tahoe 23

Since my last post I have been spending a lot of time on the fairing of the deck. I think it was Bill who said "The longer you spend on a job the closer near-enough comes to perfect. It may not be perfect but I am satisfied. I have cut out the hatch. Now I am waiting on a prop log I have ordered fro...

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Tom
It feels a real milestone when you get the bottom painted. Is that the undercoat or are you going with a white bottom. I am leaving finishing off the bootstrap until after I have mine in the water to see where the actual water line falls. Great job and I love your transom steps.

Re: Tahoe 23

Yes Carl, I don't want epoxy all over everything and that includes the paintwork. Building the hull was relatively cheap. It is after that, that the big money starts. Maybe that is why most people who do not complete a boat build seem to give up on the project once the hull is finished. Bought mysel...

Re: Tahoe 23

Have yet to start on the fairing. Most of the fairing to be done is around the sheer. It has taken a bit to get my head around this part and I must admit a bit of trepidation on starting on fairing the sheer clamps on which the cover boards will sit. It will need to be a continuous line so that the ...

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.
