Re: Tahoe 23 engine/transmission

I bought my engine from Discount Marine. They are good people. I didn't want the catalytic system with the single exhaust. I had to go through some hoops to purchase a non smog engine from them. They just needed a note stating that I was putting the engine in a old design boat so they could protect ...

Re: Tahoe 23 engine/transmission

I am late to this discussion, so I might have missed something. I used the PCM 343 engine with their 9 degree down angle transmission. I went with a starboard helm which meant a right hand prop. The engine still turns clockwise viewed from the front so the transmission is running in "reverse" in ord...

Re: Riviera/Monaco/Tahoe full season in salt/brackish water?

Good analogy! I had not thought of like that. I miss my boat every day, but I take comfort in the fact that the new owner is really enjoying the boat. I keep in touch with him on a regular basis. So maybe Frodo didn't die, he just moved to another country! Skip

Re: Riviera/Monaco full season in salt/brackish water?

nybhh, it would be very cool to watch your build, particularly if you mill your own lumber. White oak is perfect for building the frames. It is a very strong wood and has been used for years to build boats. I personally used mahogany because I liked the look. There is no reason that the Monaco or Ri...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Hadn't been on here for a few days and just now read about your stones. I am very glad you finally got some relief. I have had two stones and I know exactly what you have been going through. Thank God it is over for you. That last one I had, the doctors made me go through 2 weeks of pure hell before...

Re: Varnishing Tips

JT, I followed the directions on the Perfection Plus can to the letter. My memory is not what it used to be and I don't have a can of it in the shop anymore, so I can't check it. I know I used 320 grit but can't remember for sure if I did it between each coat. If the can said to do so, than that is ...
