Re: Monaco Restart

Finally got back on the build. My Mother fell ill before Christmas and passed away December 29th. She was 93 and truly our family's patriarch. I haven't been in much of a mood to work but decided to get back on it. Completed all of the finishing boards. Probably have a month of sanding and finishing...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Good to have you back. I just got back on mine after a month of being disgusted with my engine hatch. I'll soon have the finishing boards on and then look forward to a month of sanding - LOL.

Look forward to seeing your progress.

Re: Monaco Restart

I did some research and also visited another builder who did the 100% wood method. He had no issues so I decided to go that way. I think a lot of information that is out there (especially from Glen-L) is based on old products which did not do a good job of sealing and protecting surfaces. Like most ...

Re: Monaco Restart

Thanks Skip. The caulk intimidated me so I decided to use all wood - no caulk. I get the lumber in 7/8" thickness so I ripped the Mahogany to 2 3/4" width. Then I glued a random width piece of Maple to it. Then I ripped the whole piece to a finished 3" in width (the Maple is now 1/4&q...

Re: Monaco Restart

Finally finished the narrow finish boards. Here are a few pics. The lumber yard is cutting the wider, long ones which should be finished tomorrow. Once I get them, I'll begin installing them.

Re: Rocky Mountain Monte Carlo

JT, I am sorry that I just found your string for the Monte Carlo. I am building the Monaco (see " Monaco Restart" by Speedracer) which looks similar to your hull. Anyway, your build looks fantastic. The PCM engine I purchased didn't fit well. I had to go in and out six times I think, trimm...

Re: Monaco Restart

Anybody know if Glen-L closed? I ordered some Poxy-Shield about 3 weeks ago. Never got it so I sent an e-mail on the 15th. Never got a reply.

Thanks.

Re: Monaco Restart

Wow! I'll have to go to plan B for the windshield then. No way did I have that much budgeted. Thanks.

Re: Monaco Restart

So I am thinking about the windshield. Attached are two pics I took at this years Wooden Boat Festival in Madisonville, LA. I like this design of open sides. Can anyone who wishes to respond tell me where I can source parts like this or similar to?

Re: Monaco Restart

Brian, I placed old sheets and blankets first to catch immediate drips, then went under with a rag and wiped as needed. I also mixed the glue pretty thick to minimize drips and didn't get crazy with the amount. I'm not a fanatic over the interior that no one will ever see so It wasn't an issue. Than...
