Re: Monaco Restart

You will not have any problems if the wood is fully encapsulated. If there is any doubt there would be problems look at the laminates applied to the sides and transom as these are not caulked. My Monaco is now 5 years old and I live in an environment the same as Miami, salt water and all and the bri...

Re: monaco planking thickness

Glen On my Monaco I used 4mm ply for all planking. 4 layers on the bottom , 2 on sides plus 4mm brightwork, 2 on transom plus 4mm brightwork and 2 on deck plus 4mm brightwork. I think the plans call up 1 layer of 3/8" on the deck. Using 4mm all over saved on wastage especially on the deck as you can...

With my Monaco my eye sight is level with the top of the screen. That works well to keep the front seat occupant out of the breeze.

Re: Barrelback 20'

If there is clearance for the half coupling and shaft, to get the most benefit from the reinforcement turn the rear plate upside down.

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Michael My tank is 12" high,16" deep and 40" long too. At 3 USgal/ hour in cruise I wish I had made the tank smaller, in particular the height. At 12" high it is a bit tight and is difficult to connect the vent hose, filler hose, both supply and return fuel hoses plus the restraint straps. 10" would...

See bronkalla.com "Riviera Project". If you use Melamine and Glen-l carbon paper you can clean the board with solvent and have a clean surface for the next frame.

Earlier this year I went to a boat show and the only thing I came away with was a hearing aid show bag, how sad is that.

Congratulations on the flip, keep the boat as low as possible and build some good steps to get in and out as this could total a million times.

Re: Interior Hull Finish

Traditionally the inside of woodies were painted a dark crimson, a bit like a Holden 179 engine colour. I left my Monaco bright, 3-4 coats of epoxy and 2-3 coats of poly clear for UV protection. My reasoning was that I wanted to see what was happening to my wood down the track. I have seen wooden bo...

A fellow Monaco builder down under used mufflers on his PCM343 engine, these were from Eddie Marine. Might be worth a look.
