Re: Chine landing

Hi, I don’t think that there is any exact point, to be honest I don’t think it is that important anyway, where the chine intercepts at the bow isn’t even in the water. So long as you let it land naturally onto the bow and it looks pleasing to the eye it will be ok. I have but the Belle Isle Side sho...

Re: Aussie Belle

Hi all, Got to take the Belle out for her first drive yesterday to fill up with petrol. I then came home and checked over the fluids, installed my overflow bottle and fired her up for the first time. Starts and runs great, everything works, all the gauges are reading as they should so very happy chap!

Re: Inboard Wiring

Thanks Alan,

I have re run individual power feed wires to the switches on the panel and run them through the fuse box.

The electric choke I am going to run off the ignition switch so that it is only being fed power while the key is on.

Thanks, happy in general with how it is looking.

Re: Hello from Andrew C from Brisbane Australia

Hi Andrew, I am at the finishing stages of the Belle Isle. The barrel back is such an amazing shape, just food for thought but I added just over 2 inches to the height of the frames to give the top deck more camber as I thought it to be too flat. It will also give you a bit of extra room under deck ...

Re: Inboard Wiring

Thanks Alan, My engine is a 1970 Mercruiser carby fed, the most modern thing I hit is the electronic ignition which is an MSD unit running through a ballast resister. I will have a feed for the electric choke, the alternator is a single wire hook up. I will use a couple of the fuses but won’t be too...

Re: Inboard Wiring

Hi all need help, Wiring is not my strong point so have some questions. For the power to my ignition should I run the power from my battery to my fuse box and run the ignition switch from one of the terminals off the fuse box, if so what size fuse would be best 20amp? Also not quite sure the best wa...

Re: Tom's Tahoe

I am using these ones

You can google the name you can see I the edge of the panel.
They will make whatever combination you want.

They are also a higher amp rating than a lot of the ones that I seen like you showed, they also com pre wired on the back of panel.

Re: Aussie Belle

Thanks Dave, Hopefully this will not be an issue for me. I understand what you mean and had a look at a photo of your beautiful build on trailer and can see how it could occur. One thing that will be an advantage with the Belle is that I have a vertical bow, so I only need to come back off the winch...

Re: Tahoe 23

Tony, I have been through the registration process and the Belle is now registered. There is a form to fill out for boat registration, if you fill this in and take to the transport department and ask to be issued a HIN number they will give you one, also while you are there you can request to see if...
