Re: Making progress on my Monaco.

Hope your engine problem is solved.. They are a little aggressive on the impeller - My engine sat for a number of years during the build - then I used it a few seasons - and it did fail! I did't realize the big V8 had an impeller (duh) - I just figured a more traditional water pump was at work. That...

Re: Making progress on my Monaco.

I didn't read all the way back to see what engine you had - but this sounds very much like an issue I had on my truck years ago.. If your engine is modern and has a mass air flow sensor on the intake and the throttle body - it could be dirty causing the butterfly valve to stick. I can't remember all...

Fantastic job - really.. I'm jealous.
Very very nice.

Re: Belle Isle in Chicago build thread (with a few pics)

Great job! If there is a better way to do it, I'd like to know. But I think you did it the only way there is do to it. I had the exact same issues years ago and went through the same steps except I didn't have an air sander at the time.. Now I know better - finish looks great! Love watching your pro...

Re: Belle Isle in Chicago build thread (with a few pics)

It doesn't - not my favorite part of the process either :) I tried to get the wife to help - told her 'Wet Sanding' was fun for years... Didn't work - until we got her - a pontoon boat. She wanted to clean up the pontoons - and after 15 years - I finally got her wet sanding! Boat looks great :) Than...

Re: Making progress on my Monaco.

I named our last boat after our dog. (who has since passed) She loved the water more than eating.. "Miss Lily" https://im1.shutterfly.com/ng/services/mediarender/THISLIFE/001077911273/media/62403979870/medium/1482068871/enhance https://im1.shutterfly.com/ng/services/mediarender/THISLIFE/00...
