Re: Tahoe 23

Looking good Tony. Get a move on and you may be ready for a gathering! That gantry will also be great to assist with lifting onto a trailer. I ended up getting my motor sitting very low so don’t have the issue of the room against hatch, although I did put extra camber in the deck frames to assist wi...

Re: What is this?

Thanks gents,

Have had a look this morning and I think it is only on the very surface as there are areas that you can see through and looks clear beneath.

That will be my final coat and will now be sanding anyway getting ready for the poly clear coats which will be sprayed.

What is this?

I put on two coats of epoxy today one coat at 10:30am the other starting at 07:30

As I was getting to the end of the last coat i noticed this in the top of the coat, is this blush??

When in the shed it rained very heavy so there was a bit of moisture in the air

Re: Aussie Belle

It’s a bit like what am I looking at, it’s hard to pick out the lines

Re: Aussie Belle

Tony, Have had to teach the next generation, the older kids moved out last year, so the younger ones are now helping out. 7 year old daughter helped install the fin this morning and done a better job than most adults that I know. Explained it all once and away she went, she put the washers on, nylon...

Re: Aussie Belle

Today I have fitted the prop shaft, shaft log and seal.

Pieced together the raw water system, main valve, flushing point, strainer and oil cooler.

Rerouted the steering cable to a better location.

Had some little helpers today, vacuum the boat and help fit out parts.

Re: Tahoe 23

Hi Tony,

Can you explain to me about the change in regulations in regards to motors?

Does it mean that new builds need a cat converter?

I haven’t heard of it but need to start the rego process shortly

Re: Aussie Belle

Hi Peter, I checked the clearance last night as I had one of those moments when you mentioned about the prop to Hull, I knew it was right but still had to check for myself. I have a touch over 2 inches of clearance, pic attached. Trial fitted and drilled the holes for the fastening of the shaft log ...
