Re: Monaco Restart

Nybhh, Thanks for the kinds words. I’ve had the boat out a few times working out the bugs - which were few and minor considering this was built from scratch. My biggest was not sealing the drain plugs. I think I must have test fitted them and never went back to seal them. Some water came in on the f...

Re: Monaco Restart

Thanks so much for the kind comments. Yes, that had to be us. We were fueling up to take it out a second time. Small world.

Re: Monaco Restart

Thanks for all the great comments. I discovered (with some help) that I probably installed the packing in the rudder seal incorrectly. I think that is where the water is coming in. While I have it apart, I think I will reseal all of the through bolts for the fin and strut. After that I will tackle t...

Re: Monaco Restart

I promised BayouBengal that I wouldn’t post again until the launch. So I finally launched the Monaco for the first time on August 1. Below are a few photos of my son, Rayce and my good friend, Jack helping. I have also attached a link to my YouTube video. It’s only about 4 minutes long so I hope you...

Re: Monaco Restart

Sorry guys. Didn't mean to do that. My next post will be the launch (I promise) but I don't know how to post videos. I can't remember how Skip did it. I think I have to post it someplace else and then provide a link????????? Anybody can tell me the easiest way to do that, I would be greatly apprecia...

Re: Monaco Restart

Decided to spend the 4th installing the windshield. Also, finished the floors. Still have to seal and install them. Went to Wildlife and Fisheries and registered the boat but it's only good for 30 days. Still have to get it inspected. They no longer come out - you have to go to them if it's on a tra...

Re: Monaco Restart

Thanks to everyone for your comments. Posting pictures to the forum is very limited so I might look into posting all photos another way as suggested. I have a couple of hundred. I don't do anything like that yet but I'm sure it will be easy to learn. Expecting the windshield brackets back from the c...

Re: Monaco Restart

Took the family to Italy [Venice, Florence, Piza & Rome] for 10 days so progress came to a halt. Since back I’ve finish all of the welding and painting work on the trailer. Finished re-fitting everything today. Took it for a test ride but had some vibration. Going to get the wheels balanced which sh...
