Re: through-hull drains

On my Monaco, when it is level the lowest point is about where the drivers feet are. It would be hard to lift the front high enough to drain at the transom. I have a T- handled garboard plug like Jim posted. It is under the front cockpit floorboard on one side of the keel with a limber through the k...

Re: Riveria water line

On the plans the page that shows the lines should have that information. I think it is page 2. It shows the waterline and also gives the measurements from the setup level to the top of the bootstripe.

Max should be about the same as the shaft size. A 1" shaft about 1" between. An 1 1/4" can be up to 1 1/4" but 1" would still be fine with 1 1/4 shaft.
But also not too close, as you need water flow through the bearing and room to use a puller for the prop.

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

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 and no need for a backer on inside for tear out.

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.

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: 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.
