Re: Ski Tow hook recommendations

I went with a pop-up pylon on my Monte Carlo and have been happy with it. I over-engineered the bracing with some galvanized steel under the deck.

Re: Must have Tools

In addition to what has been mentioned, I found a power hand planer to be helpful. Especially for fairing. I have a porter cable that did great. Also heavy grit belt sander for fairing... A nice table saw would be tool number one. I bought a nice Sawstop 10". Band saw, jig saw, multitasker, sawzall,...

Re: Rocky Mountain Monte Carlo

Had to cut away engine hatch framing to squeeze the 6.0L in there. In hindsight if I would have thought through the angles and designs earlier I would have been able to sit it down further to the keel but it works. I found it hard at the stage of drilling the shaft hole to look so far ahead to the e...

Re: Rocky Mountain Monte Carlo

Jenko- I used the 1.23:1 Ratio. Right hand 4 blade 13.0 X 16.0 prop. I think this feels like the right prop. Good low end torque and tops out around 50 mph. I could probably change the pitch and gain some top end but I am happy with the balance Bought the PCM engine and transmission assembled togeth...

Still need to add bumper rails in the back, Lettering on transom and hull, final sanding/polishing of hull and a few small interior items. So I have a few...

Re: Rocky Mountain Monte Carlo

Jim, I would anticipate varnishing over the caulk if I had to do more varnish down the road as long as the caulk was in good shape. I tried cutting compound and polishing over the caulk in a section and it didn't cause any issues. I did use the 2 part. The hull ended up with 5-6 coats (maybe overkil...
