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.

This years houseboat trip

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”

This has kind of gotten off track, we need to see photos or videos of HoosierVet’s boat that this post is about.

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.

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

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 ...
