Re: Engine hatch hinges

The way I did it on a curve ( it would also work on a straight edge ) is with 2 pins through bronze bushings held by clips. When the hatch is opened the rear drops down as the front goes up. To Remove the hatch, remove the clips and close the hatch, then the pins can be removed from the rear cockpit...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

This doesn’t apply if you choose to use a two part spray application, but for traditional varnish I recommend reading this book https://www.amazon.com/Brightwork-Finishing-Wood-Rebecca-Wittman/dp/0071579818 .( don’t know why it’s so expensive I know I didn’t pay that much, may find used on somewhere...

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

It depends where you boat. Alone 20 miles off shore, one battery, your brave. On a lake or river when you see another boater once in a while, not a big deal. I have one battery and carry a backup jumper unit that I have never had to use in 14 years. What are you going to be running when anchored ? K...

Same frames, same transom and you can do the seating anyway you like.

Re: Stretching a Monaco

If you want to go longer than that build a Riviera stretched 10% (267 in) then do the front cockpit layout like a Monaco.

Re: This years houseboat trip

More photos. The pictures don't do it justice, the walls are 300 to 400ft tall. Green growth 200 to 300ft down where water seeps out of the rocks.

Re: Trailering the first time

Using an engine hoist I lifted the bow and hung it from the lifting eye at the garage door, then lifted the back and rolled the trailer under the boat then lowered the back of the boat onto the trailer and raised the front of the trailer and unhooked the front.

Re: 23’ Belle Isle “hooking”

Does the bow come down lower the faster you go? Depending on the rake of the prop it can lift the stern and push the bow down. My Monaco does this. With the vertical bow it can act like a rudder if is too low in the water. If you watch most classic boats go through the water they ride bow high and t...

Re: Prop size and pitch advise

The Acme 13x12.6 three blade is what I have. 19ft Monaco, 300hp, 1:1 velvet drive, wot 5000 rpm, top speed about 55mph.

I have tried several different props and this one worked best for me for overall use.
If we are mostly going to pull tubes or skiers I use an Acme 13x11

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

I also cleaned them before the epoxy set. Pieces of rag, Q-tips, what ever works. You should get under there to clean up and smooth out the drips and mess anyway.
