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.

You can't see in this picture but the straps are hooked to loops welded to the trailer.

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Looking back the waterline may not be exactly parallel with the stringers but its close. I don't remember exactly where I put the limbers but what you did sounds like you have it figured out. To be sure, there is nothing wrong with adding one a little forward and aft of where you figured. With that ...

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

I put my drain, bilge pump and a limber through the keel just behind frame 6. For the arthwartship limbers on the battens, I put them at the lowest point while the boat is at rest in the water. This is not at frame 6 for most of the battens because of the way the bottom is shaped. While the boat is ...

Re: Hello to Everyone from Phoenix

I think it would be fine. It is harder on a wood boat to have a drastically changing climate. Being inside will also help. I am in the central valley of California. My boat is outside with a cover, it’s in rain and 100+ heat. Plus once a year we take it to Arizona for a week and it is out in the sun...

Re: Barrelback 19 planing

That is a right hand prop. Is that what you need?
