Re: Tom's Tahoe

Thanks Dave. I am using a square set to the spile line and mark a cut line, then flip the square to come at the butt joint from the other side which always marks a slightly different cut line, then I split the difference and cut. In essence, set the butt joint on the radial line of the curved/spiled...

Re: Tahoe 23 Prop Shaft Diameter?

Dave, I'm no expert but I see the geometry like this. The prop strut angle is the angle between keel and shaft, per instructions, 14*. The shaft log is the angle between keel and shaft, per instructions 12*. Since the keel is straight in the area of the prop shaft I would have to warp the hose betwe...

Re: Tahoe 23 Prop Shaft Diameter?

Thanks for the feedback Brad. 300 HP is just a guess, shouldn't be more than that, probably a GM 350.

The stuffing box is called out as 1 1/8" for both the prop shaft and the rudder.

Re: Need some ideas - plywood problem

I think Jim's onto the issue. The tug have a reverse a stem that curves forward then back to sheer creating a bulbed bow. So after confirming the plywood is cut to plan (I bet you've checked a bunch of times already), I'd suggest cutting the stem ties, install a thwart at station one, and then tortu...

Tahoe 23 Prop Shaft Diameter?

I sat down this weekend to order a Prop Strut. The Instructions include a hardware list calling out a 14* strut for a 1" shaft diameter, a 12* shaft log for 1" shaft diameter, and a 1 1/8" stuffing box. Does a 1 1/8" stuffing box work on a 1" shaft? 14* strut and a 12* shaft...

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Hey Matt, "rump", I like it, more friendly sounding than "stern"! I decided to stick with seven plank courses and started planking at the sheer. I studied a number of methods and I may have settled on the absolute slowest way possible, almost entirely with a hand plane to spile e...

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

Looks great Neel. Never having fared anything before, I used a belt sander, power plane, hand plane, rasp, chisels, a pull saw, and four letter words strung together in new and creative strings. :lol: :lol: :lol: I now have the 6" RO and it would be the go to tool for faring. I also got a lot o...

Re: Riviera build

Good buy on the table saw. I was a little too "American" in my word selection... A table saw has a guide fence for ripping long board to the width between the fence and the blade. A long board with a curve will pass through the saw between blade and fence and emerge narrower but still curv...

Re: Riviera build

A circular saw or router would be my tool of choice for this task using the plywood straightedge as a fence. We can come up with other reasons to get the table saw. :wink: Tom

Re: Thinking about first build - Tahoe vs Monaco

Welcome to the forum. Both are fine designs. I am slowly building a Tahoe. I see two principle differences, the "rumps" are different, and the Monaco is 5" wider. Five in either boat will be cozy, two in the way back, and two with the captain. And if I'm one of the three across in the...

Re: Riviera build

The method described will work with a circular saw too, used the ply straightedge as a fence. Tom

Re: Extending the Tahoe 23 to 24'2"

The boat looks great Donn. The slide-route-scarf-a-maker is a new one. What diameter hole did you use for the drive shaft hole?

Re: Stephens Zip

I marked my floor, no anchors, it didn't shift. If you're worried, add a few dabs of latex caulk and scrape it off after.

Re: Barrelback 20'

To add a little more maybe, many a classic had spray rails. Often times the rails are large, but they don't need to be. For example, on the site Jim listed the Chris Craft 19' Racing Runabout - 1954 had modest spray rails. Look closely along the chine. The idea is to direct the water away from the s...

Re: Extending the Tahoe 23 to 24'2"

Hmmm, Donn what is your reasoning for not putting flotation above the waterline? It seems that it might useful anywhere you can get it if you need it.
