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...

For anyone building a Riviera or Monaco a visit to bronkalla.com is a must.

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

Re: Aussie Belle

Jamie My jig, here's what went wrong. 1. My cutwater is 42" long and 3" wide, .050" 316 SS. Would have been better to be 2.5", this would have reduced it's stiffness. 2. As Jenko commented. I TIG welded it and it unbowed. That is it lost it's curve. Had an 1" gap on stem apex at one end. 3. The stem...

Re: Plumbing twin tanks for EFI?

Denon They are quite expensive $560 - $590 so I made my own. That said we don't have to worry about approval for these type of things "down under" for private use. I did a quick search and came up with "marinepartssource.com You could probably shop around the dealers to see if they have a second han...

Spacing looks perfect. Will look even better with 50 knots on the speedo. I like the wheel too.

Re: Plumbing twin tanks for EFI?

Denon I take it you are incorporating an EFI system to a previously carburettored engine. USCG requirements state that you cannot have a pressurised fuel line more than 14" from the engine, so most marine engine manufacturers incorporate a fuel cell. The HP EFI pump draws fuel from the cell and the ...

Re: Aussie Belle

HI Jamie The centre of my axles sits directly below the rear face of the engine block. This gives me 9% on the ball. Considering that your rig will be operated in warm salty water give some thought to aluminium trailers. Also extendable draw bars are a must as the trailer has to go a lot further out...

Re: Australian Build - Timber Options - Suppliers

I used Hoop Pine, being a local timber sourcing is no problem up here in SE Queensland, but down your way I would give serious thought to Tassie Oak/Mountain Ash.

Re: Tahoe 23

Hi Tony Morse is the British equivalent of the SAE taper. Depending on the shaft size the taper angle can be a larger or smaller to the SAE taper, but it is different for all sizes. A bushing is available so that you can use a morse taper shaft on a SAE taper props, but the prop bore has to be the n...

Re: Tahoe 23

Hi Tony
Just a note on props and shafts. American tapers are SAE whereas locally made stuff is Morse.
