Re: Making progress on my Monaco.

Beautiful boat, Skip, and best of luck selling it. I too love the challenge of the build, and now I find myself sitting around waiting on the perfect combination of good weather, off work, and wife home so we can use it. That is what frustrates me. On top of that, when the WX is great, SHE wants to ...

Re: Restoring Glory Days a 23' Belle Isle

Thanks for creating this thread. I also used dye, hoping the varnish layer would protect it. She stays inside except when on the lake. Having finished her last September, there have only been 2 trips to the lake so I imagine I will eventually have the same thing happen if I don't freshen up the top ...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I did basically what others mentioned. I laid the bottom mahogany plank so its edge matched the chine line. As the plank edge rolled aft, I brought its bottom edge out to where it sat exactly on the chine break (intersection of the bottom and side). That left a little triangle of wood to fair off. I...

There is a compromise in there. "We can make life as simple, or difficult, as we choose."

Re: Tandem axle boat trailer

Is the trailer sitting on level ground ( like a concrete slab) and the tounge level?

Re: Placement of guards on the Tahoe

I wanted the swim deck because it was needed for our use. We love hanging out on the lake and having a place to relax when we aren't under power. If I recall, that height pretty much was the height of the guards. After running her, the swim deck is of no issue to the wake. Just an FYI, even though y...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I used thin epoxy thickened with silica on all but the mahogany outer layer, and spread it with a notched trowel. On the final mahogany layer, I used fine sawdust I had saved, so any small gaps were filled in with something that wasn't white, if this helps.

Re: In hull Transducers

I have a Faria depth finder in mine. The xducer I got was the through hull, and of course, they did not mention that it wasn't recommended for wood. I had to find that out after I bought it. But I bagged it in water and found a place it would sound through, and mounted it. Jury is still out on wheth...
