Re: Monaco Restart

Chris, I think I saw you driving north on 190 today by the chevy dealer as I was heading south from work. I can honestly say that she is even more amazing out in the sunlight and as close to "in person" as you can be when on the other side of the neutral ground. Have to say it again. Great...

Re: Coastal Cruiser vs. True Grit

One of the chief reasons for the canted windows like you mentioned are for increased visibility. The line of sight to areas close to the vessel hull is increased if you are able to lean over the console and see the bow or sides of the vessel where your vision would have been obstructed/reduced by ve...

Re: What do call this type of sheer?

I would consider this a broken sheer as the line has the discontinuity. In the link given b...

Re: What do call this type of sheer?

It would still be called a sheer. Sheer is just the line that separates the hull side from the main deck. This sheer in particular has an inflection point where the sheer goes from a convex to concave (or Vice Versa). This does not mean that the sheer is not fair. FWIW: Capture.JPG Take the image of...

Re: Considering Some Skipjack Modifications

Hope the mast works out for you. I would also suggest not try to make sealed air compartments in the hull as if there ever were to be water ingress it would be impossible to bail them and you could have rot if the areas are not able to accessed to ensure their water tightness (aside from being a lot...

Re: Questin about fresh watercooling

It should be possible, as they operate under similar thermodynamic principles, the concerns will be two things: 1) does the heat plate heat exchanger cool the circuit effectively. The vendor should sell you a product that meets those needs but best to make sure. And to make sure that it fits inside ...

Welcome aboard! I agree to get the girls involved. Both my son and daughter love to come out in the garage and play around while I work.
