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: 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.

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...
