Re: Ian's TNT Build

Your build is looking good. I used a Teleflex no feedback system on my TNT (built back in 2010/2011 - see the "Another TNT build" thread). The boat has a 25 HP motor. I know a no feedback system isn't really required for small motors but I like it. A comment about your dash height. Remember that you...

Re: Riviera Build - Sacramento

I need to clarify/correct a comment in a previous post where I said "I used a long level to make sure my keel notches were in line on a horizontal plane." What I should have said is that I used a long level to make sure my keel notches were in line on the same plane. During the build on a Monaco bef...

Re: Riviera Build - Sacramento

I agree with Tom. The Monaco plans do not call for notched stringers but I am not sure about the Riviera plans.

Re: Riviera Build - Sacramento

Glad to help. To answer your questions: 1) I nailed my gussets with ring shank nails per the plans. I drilled pilot holes through the gussets first. I did use #8 screws for the floor timbers per the plans. 2) I didn't notch the frames in the stringers. The clips hold them very well but pay attention...

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Thank you Carl. I appreciate it. Yes, it will be worth it for sure but mine aren't perfect either :)

Re: Riviera Build - Sacramento

Good luck with your build. In response to your questions: 1) I think putting them on both sides would be overkill. Glen-L knew what he was doing when he designed these boats :) 2) I made most out of one piece on my Monaco but I don't think you need to. 3) If you look closely at the drawings, some fa...

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

I finished the first row of final side planking including the first row on the transom :) I started working on the second row. The first two pieces on the starboard side are fitted. Saying it takes a long time to get a tight fit between the final side planking pieces is an understatement but with pa...

Re: Help needed working with Glen L plans

Stephen, I have used a cross line laser level to check various things as my build has progressed including checking that after fairing, the outer edges of the transom were in the same horizontal plane by pointing the laser level at the transom. I also used it to check that the forward frames were fa...

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Neel,

Using a stain that gives more working time would be better for me. I work kind of slow :) It is also good to know that they switched to Lo Boat. More forgiving is also a good thing for me. I guess I will really need to consider Lo Boat.

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

Neel,

That is looking great. Your seams look nice and tight and clean. I might actually catch up to you on my Monaco build while you are in Florida :) Is your final planking layer genuine mahogany?

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Neel,

Thank you for the information. Was there something about the Interlux filler stain that you didn't like?

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Matt, Thank you. I am learning more as I go, just like many other parts of the build. Neel, Thank you for the reply. Yes, I did see your picture and post on your PB thread about the side planking. I just replied to your post (sorry I didn't reply sooner). I do plan on a cutwater so that is why I was...
