Re: Monaco Restart

Thanks everyone. The deck over the speedometer and tachometer will slope port and starboard and finish out just behind the windshield. At least that's the plan. I'll be at the boat festival in October but the boat won't. No way I'll finish it by then and I don't want to put it out until it's finished.

Re: Monaco Restart

Good evening. I haven’t posted in a while so I thought I would update my forum string. Got 98% of the wiring complete now with no mistakes. Lights, blower, bilges, etc all work. I couldn’t keep my fingers off the key so I tried to turn the engine over. Dead - nothing. Everything looked right so I we...

Re: Making progress on my Monaco.

I loved the video Skip. Keeps me pushing ahead on mine. Please keep us all posted concerning the fuel issue and if you've got it sorted.

Re: Making progress on my Monaco.

Skip, Sorry for your problems. This isn't worth much technically but working on and diagnosing car problems all my life, I found it's almost always the simplest solution. I re-built a Porsche years ago. Took almost two years - everything was perfect. I put 5 gallons in it to try it out the first tim...

Re: New Member from the Big Easy

Good evening Juan. I hope you get this reply as I can see the last post is from April. I was trolling the new members section for others near me and the Big Easy caught my eye. Anyway I live in Covington and am building the Monaco. My forum thread is entitled, "Monaco Restart" under Power ...

Re: New member from oregon

Thanks guys. I’ve been researching welders and welding methods for stainless. Seems pretty straight forward. I use a Lincoln wire fed machine now for regular steel. Works much better than a stick welder as long as the material is relatively light gauge. Too bad, it just isn’t the model that can use ...

Re: Monaco Restart

Understood concerning a true lifting eye. My boat is not going to follow the original designs or finishes so adding a bow eye will not detract from it but I haven't decided 100% on the bow eye either way. I did take a look at what Josh did with his. Very nice.

Re: New member from oregon

Josh, Your cutwater looks great. I especially like the way in which you’ve incorporated the bow eye into it. I was thinking of getting my cutwater made for my Monaco but I understand the guy doesn’t use a bow eye. As such, I am considering making the cutwater myself. I also like to learn new stuff a...

Re: Monaco Restart

So many helpful responses - thanks so much. I took a quick look at Mike's youtube videos and the process he has outlined to send him a pattern looks fool proof. Although I may prove that wrong. Anyway, that looks like the way to go except I am a little concerned that there can be no bow eye. I am us...

Re: Bow Plate Fabrication

Yes, that what I mean. I built industrial complexes so I's still not up on the boating terms - sorry. Bill, I have sent a message to your suggested person. I'm sure he can help me. Thanks.

Re: Monaco Restart

I am trying to figure out how to get the bow plate made. No one around here could handle such a task. I was wondering if anyone knows of a firm that might fabricate these if a wood or fiberglass pattern were sent to them. I also posted this request in the "Material - Metal" section of the ...
