Re: Rocky Mountain Monte Carlo

JoeM- It is a hydraulic lift. Powered by 220v. I just back the trailer on and push a button to raise it up. Pretty slick. It is an actual boat lift instead of a car lift. It can raise as high as 12 feet and is long and wide to accept a boat trailer. 7000 lb capacity. I went with a Bendpack. I though...

Re: Rocky Mountain Monte Carlo

Got the trailer back and the boat lifted on it. Happy with how it turned out...definitely a long trailer! Got my ski boat stored for the winter and left some room under it to keep my work progressing. Installed the rudder and steering this weekend. Exhaust, fuel lines and plumbing next.

Re: Rocky Mountain Monte Carlo

Thanks for the pic and tips Skip. Glad to see that you were able to relocate the expansion tank. I will likely give that a try. I think I should have the room. Still may also lower the whole engine another few inches and that would solve it. So far I just have a very rough alignment until I track do...

Re: Rocky Mountain Monte Carlo

Thanks Chris...I checked out your Monaco...It is beautiful! Strong work...Already picked up a few tips from looking at your pics. I actually started frames about 4 years ago and seriously put in time starting about 3 years ago...So I'm not moving as quickly as it looks, I just was a bit delayed in p...

Re: Rocky Mountain Monte Carlo

Got her on the trailer to take down to the trailer guys to do final fitting. Glad I had the boat lift to do the heavy lifting! Not sure how I would have done it otherwise. Strapped it down and had a puckering drive down the freeway hoping to keep it on the trailer. Got a few thumbs up from drivers o...

Re: Interior Hull Finish

I also was hesitant to epoxy the inside and instead, based on the advice of many on the forum, did several coats of CPES followed by a 2 part varnish. The CPES goes on very easy and has the consistency of water. I felt that it would better penetrate all of the small cracks/voids and an easier applic...
