Best to keep the engine, fuel tank and battery as far away from each other as possible.

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Lee I epoxied the clips to the frames and stringers. There will never be a need to pull them apart and the epoxy will add to the rigidity of the joint. Back to your previous post, I put all of the clips on the outside of the stringers. This keeps the front and rear cockpit foot well clear. With the ...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Yes, these engines are what Toyota used in the "Epic" boats. The one I used, as pictured, is an earlier model to Michaels. 4 litre, 260hp, 200 lbs/ft at 1000 RPM and 250 lbs/ft at 4000 RPM. 300 lbs lighter than a Chev 350. In my Monaco it consumes 12 Litres/Hr at 3000 RPM which gives a cruise speed ...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Hi Michael I used the Toyota fuse/relay box which incorporates all those relays and wiring. Also the fuses normally used by the chassis were used for the boat's circuits. My heat exchanger is fed from the bottom. After the pickup the raw water goes through the seacock then a "T" for flushing, next t...

Re: Downunder Monaco Utility

cssh I used International Perfection Plus using a 12" disposable foam roller (Bunnings) and tipped off with a 2" foam brush. Renew brush when it is starting to hold paint. Dust will be your biggest problem. I painted inside a plastic party tent that was erected inside my enclosed shed and still had ...

I feel for you, not the report we all wanted to hear. Get the boat fixed and get back on the horse. You need to erase this experience and enjoy your beautiful boat. You also have an "Aussie Gathering" to attend.

Re: Inboard Wiring

Jamie Sorry I forgot you had a nice simple engine. The MSD unit would draw about 6 amps and the choke 3-4, so 10 amps total. Try a 15 amp fuse and carry a 20. Use a fuse for each electrical component, for example bilge pump, vent blower, anchor light, navigation lights etc. Watch those prewired swit...

Re: Inboard Wiring

G'day Jamie The engine manufacturer would have supplied a wiring diagram for your engine, maybe fuses and their recommended rating is shown in those diagrams or in the "installation" plurb. My Lexus engine has fuses for fuel control and for ignition and EFI sensors plus three for alternator control,...

Re: Tahoe 23

Unfortunately you can't have a custom rego, has to be standard format. Letter, letter, number, number, number, Q. I had a few attempts, but managed to get GW177Q, very happy with that. Maybe BI427Q or GL427Q. Still looking for the ABP maker.

Re: Tahoe 23

Jamie/Tony When I registered the Monaco they were not interested in seeing the boat, the trailer was a different matter. All they wanted was the completed registration form and the money. You can reserve a registration and they will give you a HIN, no charge. I went to an information talk at the Bri...

Try Poly Flex Australia for the coupling. They are just north of Brisbane.
