Re: Tahoe 23 Prop Shaft Diameter?

Hi Tom. Great progress on your build. Very impressed with how you laid out the final mahogany layer on the sides. The strut I ended up with is a 14* - item number 90-116 on Glen-L's online store, with the corresponding Blackfish bearing (item # 90-352) suited to a 1" propeller shaft. The plans calle...

Re: Extending the Tahoe 23 to 24'2"

Thanks Tom. The bit I used was 1.75". Per Roberta's post, I'll line it with fiberglass tubing with an outside diameter of just under 1.75" and an inside diameter of just under 1.25". All the dimensions assume the recommended 1" propeller shaft.

Cheers,

Donn

Oooops, Didn't mean to post a photo of my children...But not sorry I did! :oops:

A few more photos including the scarfing jig I mocked up (inspired by a YouTube post). It uses sliding drawer guides set at a 10:1 ratio

Re: Extending the Tahoe 23 to 24'2"

Various stages of the build. I really struggled with where the land the battens and wish I had followed Brad T or Tony H's lead.

A few more photos, these related to drilling the propeller shaft hole, I hope may be helpful.

Re: Extending the Tahoe 23 to 24'2"

Relatively current photos. I've added about 10 planks to one of the sides, but should give a general idea a to status. I continue to be awed by the lines of the Tahoe. Ken H was a master!

Re: Extending the Tahoe 23 to 24'2"

My bad... I meant to say above the water line. One of those problems of building something upside down. :oops:

Re: Extending the Tahoe 23 to 24'2"

Thanks to all for the comments and advice. This forum is incredible and I am so grateful that it exists. I think I will put 2" rigid foam in the below water line sections of the transom. I should note that I have followed Bill's oft repeated suggestion and drilled drain holes in the transom cross me...

Re: Extending the Tahoe 23 to 24'2"

Well, it's been a while but after a few heart operations, and just life in general, I finally returned to what I warmly call "my little project" about 4 months ago. I have continued to follow the forum over the period and continue to be inspired by Roberta, Tony Hain, Tom B, Brad Tucker and many oth...

Re: Tahoe 23 Georgia build

Brad, I've been following your build closely for a long time now and your work has been awe inspiring. I'm in the middle of a Tahoe 23 build (just finishing up the false transom) and there hasn't been a step along the way I haven't looked to your build for both inspiration and direction. Well done o...

Re: Tom's Tahoe

The scallop transom design in the photo you posted is absolutely stunning. I am in the middle of constructing the false transom on my Tahoe 23 (extended to 24 and a bit) and can visualize how this can be accomplished. I am no engineer, but it seems to me that to redesign the cross members in the fal...

Re: Extending the Tahoe 23 to 24'2"

Oh so true Bill! I wish I could think more like an engineer - no doubt my abilities to visualize and problem solve would be much the better for it. I thought I'd share my key learnings of the project to date: 1. Don't rush, be patient and be as precise as you can be, particularly on the layout board...
