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: Rampage Update 2017

I have the same mounts. My alternator is mounted to the tab. The pivot point of the alternator is attached to the tab and the sliding adjustment is mounted to a bracket attached to the front of the head. On my setup the alternator mounting points are reversed from normal, the threaded tab that is us...

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.

Lake Mohave 2017

Annual trip to Lake Mohave. Problem is it hits the same time as the Gathering. Would really like to reschedule or skip a year to make the trip to the Gathering.

Photo from top of houseboat. Lots of fun!

Re: Michigan Squirt Build

Boat Life Caulk is what I used too. Easy cleanup. Small spots wipe off with a dry rag.
When it comes time to remove deck hardware and screws it is not a problem.

Re: Which plan to emulate a Chris Craft Capri?

A Capri has more freeboard than a Monaco or Riviera. It is a tight fit keeping a V8 under the deck of a Monaco or Riviera. The depth of the hull is less the farther back you go. Plus if you move the engine back it will need to be mounted at a sharper angle. The engine would not fit under the deck. I...

Speaking of Van Dam boats,
A member of our ACBS chapter has three. Check out those, and some other great boats.

Re: Monaco trailer

Keith, I have a single axle too. Ten years and a lot of miles. Just keep tabs on tire condition and pressure, at the beginning of every trip I stop after a few miles for a bearing check and make sure the hubs are not hot. Modifying a trailer for an outboard can be done, but like you mentioned you ha...

Re: Tahoe 23 prop size?

I agree with Kens on this. My Monaco is lighter and I have more than 240 HP and my WOT is closer to 5000 rpms. I think the stats calling for 14 or 15 pitch are too high. Most of the time I am running an Acme 13 x 12.625 .080 cup 3 blade. When we are pulling tubes or skiers I switch to a 13 x11 .120 ...

Re: Monaco Restart

If you install a true lifting eye with your winch setup high, you do not need a bow eye. This is how the original boats were setup. Just me, but I would not put a bow eye through a cutwater.

You can send them a pattern and they will match it. Make notes on edges that need to be pencil polished.
