Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Lee,

My old man had bought one and we had nothing but trouble, went down to the local hardware and bought a cheapy and it lasted the
duration of the Build.

Like anything there is bound to be that one in every thousand that may have an issue, seems like I always end up with that one!

Re: Rub Rail Bending

Tom, I actually used my panel beating hammer and dollies to do mine, it does mark the stainless and I did have to sand and repolish in those areas but it worked well. I would place a dolly in the vice on the bench with the desired profile upwards and then go to town on the rub rail, my rubrails are ...

Re: Modifying the Tahoe 23 design

Being "boatless" isn't all that bad" Said NOBODY EVER!! :D :D I have a boat now but it killed me everytime I seen a new launch on the forum. I did plan for a reasonably quick build but ended up being 8 years. I agree, don't try and rush the build, build what you want and enjoy it. I will be starting...

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Looking good Lee, The Monaco transom is so simple compared to the Belle Isle. The Belle has a full piece ply with a strengthening strip around the frame, it then has a series of cambered pieces to create the curve of the transom, the camber in the centre of the transom is around the 5 1/2" to bend t...

Re: Barrelback decking.

Hi Jim,

As Bill said, Yes.

I am 6' 3" and 240 pounds and I walk over the hatch all the time, I did do mine a little different to the plan but still no major changes.

these boats are so rock solid when finished.

Re: Aussie Belle

Hi Tom, I wouldn’t change anything. The travel is spot on and super smooth. The position is spot on for practicability. With the arm rest it is very comfortable. I did have to trim some out of the edge of arm rest to allow for knuckle room but that is due to the arm rest having an overhang over the ...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I also put drink holders in the armrests. They are great and also get a lot of use.

None in the drivers seat though, can’t be accused of having a beer while driving 😁

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Lee, When I done the transom on the Belle I went first layer 4mm, second layer full size sheet again with 4 mm and then the final layer planked in my timber at 6mm. Just have someone there to assist with getting the epoxy on there quick and position and fasten. I used steel staples through small squ...

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Hi,

I have built the Belle Isle and on the transom I went with the same as the bottom and sides 1/2” all over, actually ended up about 14mm

Hope this helps

Your frames look great!

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

Hi, Thought I would check out how the spray rails work and take a photo. I was supposed to see that the was no water touching the rails at all. The water was sheeting straight off the hull, this photo was taken at about 25 mph, at the lower speed they seems to help but at higher speed this is how th...
