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...

Re: Extending the Tahoe 23 to 24'2"

Well, I have been making considerable progress... and it's been an absolute ball. All the frames built and in place, stem transom completed and dry fitted. I have also continued to closely follow, enjoy, and benefit from all of the posts. This forum is incredibly helpful and I can't tell you all how...

Re: Extending the Tahoe 23 to 24'2"

Thanks Tony. Much appreciated. Perfectly clear (and I do feel a little foolish given how straight forward the resolution). I must say I have been following your build with great interest - very impressive work. An inspiration. I have spent a good deal of time in Australia - mostly Melbourne, some in...

Re: Extending the Tahoe 23 to 24'2"

Well, its been a long while (a few health scares, demands of work and family, getting a proper shop arranged and reacquainting myself with long idle tools) but I have finally completed assembly of the frames, transom and stem. It's been fun - a great project indeed. I have notched all the frames (ex...

Re: Extending the Tahoe 23 to 24'2"

Thanks Bill. Much appreciated. I will be using 90 year old tight grain, clear DF for the motor stringers (salvaged from the original floor joists of our remodeled 90 yo house). Beautiful wood. I do have a question whether or not there is a preferred location for a scarf joint in the motor stringers....

Re: Extending the Tahoe 23 to 24'2"

Thanks very much Neel and Gayle. Much appreciated. I have read the discussion on motor positioning and CB. That was very helpful and quite thorough.

Cheers,

Extending the Tahoe 23 to 24'2"

I have received the plans and instructions for the Tahoe 23. Having poured over it for the past few weeks, the instructions are quite explicit about notch placement on the stringers to change boat length by 15" but is not clear whether or not the stringer itself needs to be lengthened by 15 inc...

New member from Portland OR

Very excited to have received Tahoe 23 plans and instructions. I found tremendous inspiration, after literally years of contemplation, from multiple builds registered on this blog. I have been pouring over the plans in myopic detail since received a week ago and will no doubt be seeking the help and...
