Re: FL Tahoe 23

I was fortunate (lucky really) to find 20' Douglas Fir beams from a local supplier for my 21' build. Scarf and laminate away if it's the best you can get, it'll be plenty strong.

Re: First timer

Welcome! I know someone here that has a 58' Resorter but the transmission is blown and that guy says it's almost impossible to find someone to repair it. Ford 292 block and I'm not sure what the trans. is but I'm told it uses the engine oil for lubrication? Strange setup. Good luck with your project!

Re: introduction

I simply transferred the lines to the setup board and used the outlines there to fit up the frame sections. I found that It's best to screw down chock blocks so the boards are fixed when you start applying the gussets. I don't have a really good photo of that step but you can figure it out.

Re: introduction

Welcome! Lots to consider there... I'd say if you're thinking Lake Michigan choose the big Tahoe and pick a calm day to run on it. It is widely held that the older designs with the vertical bows won't take much chop.

Re: Steve B. Checking in from NH!

Welcome Steve! My wife is from Loudon so I know the turf you're in pretty well. I should think the wood sources around there are pretty good and I'm totally jealous that you have such a big beautiful lake to look forward to when you're done. ACBS show paraphernalia I saw in Wolfeboro in 2014 is what...

I like the Riva overtones in that Malahini(?), and where did that steering wheel come from!?

Re: Norwegian Barrelback 20'

No matter what you'll have to "spile" the planking to get it to match up, this takes some work with scribe and trim methods. Search the internet for some videos. The other thing is that in the bow areas you'll be laying a flat piece over a concave surface so be sure to apply a LIBERAL amount of epox...

Re: Fuel Tank suggestions?

Thanks for the feedback Dave. I'm pretty well settled on the 27 gallon Moeller tank I linked above as it will fit the best and it's the closest I can get to 30 gallons. Should have enough head space for the fill tube and the dual exhaust to pass by the sides.

Re: Fuel Tank suggestions?

I'll have to check the fuel system but the used power plant I bought had a carb with a return line back to the pump? More like a bowl overflow line than anything.

Re: Fuel Tank suggestions?

Wow! Is that enough capacity to go round trip from Hales bar to Chattanooga and back?

Just trying to judge what makes sense, 27 gallons or go for 30 gallons, more is always better but at what expense?
