Re: Lake Tahoe Boat Show

From there we went around the lake stopping at Emerald Bay and other resorts with more people and boats joining as we went.

Re: Lake Tahoe Boat Show

In 2007 our ACBS chapter had a cruise we called the Tahoe Get-Around. Four of us started out and met up with Thunderbird halfway across the lake.

No sorry don’t know anything about VM. I don’t know anything about SB trailers either, just that they are not too far away.

Was that DHM trailers?
That is who built the trailer I have. Too bad they did a good job.

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I have 1 garboard drain with a limber through the keel. You are past the point of easily adding a limber so 2 would probably be the way to go. I don't know about the Barrel Back, but on the Monaco the lowest point is just ahead of the front seat.

Re: Drilling the prop shaft hole.

Here is a link to a post that showed the hole saw I made. Easy to make, cut through fast, and it cuts straight and won't wander like a drill bit.

Re: Ventilation Info

Intake doesn't need to have hose. exhaust should have hose from lowest point of the bilge. If the exhaust has a hose down low it will draw the air down to it.

But they are crazy expensive. The style in your picture is almost $9000 dollars.
Sometimes they show up on ebay.

Re: fume ventalation system design question

I have two front facing vents, no hose. Two rear facing vents, one with no hose and one with a hose down in the bilge with a blower. I run the blower before I start the engine, but not while running. Just as important I open the hatch once in awhile to visually check everything and smell for fumes. ...

Re: Monaco Restart

You should not need a puller. Separate the flange from the transmission, place a socket or similar between the end of the prop shaft and the end of the transmission then gradually tighten the flange bolts to press the shaft out of the flange. ( you will probably need longer bolts than the originals ...

Re: Tahoe 23 prop size?

The 13 x 12.625 is what I use most of the time. Before that I had the 13 x 13 and like you it was holding the rpms down a bit. Switching to the 12 x 12.625, the top end will probably be about the same, but would be a little better out of the hole.
