Re: Hi from Western Australia

Hi Paul I'm in Sydney, not Canbera. I have PM'd you some Renagade contact details. The Aussie & NZ builders list is at around 110 now. I started the list primarily as a means of fellow builders contacting each other. All list details have been compiled from Glen-l Forum and Build pages or have been ...

Re: +1 Aussie

It'll be intersting to see what timbers you choose. I'll be doing the same for my build, local lumber, though I haven't decided what. Anyhow, look forward to seeing how your build progresses. Thanks fella's. I've been slowly compiling data on the local "Lumbers" and entering them into a spreadsheet...

Re: Monico Engine Choice

I have a line on a good, inexpensive 2002 LS1 Chevy engine. Minor research indicates that this would be a good candidate to convert to marine use for my Monico. Has anyone done this? Does anyone know where the marine conversion parts can be found? Thanks. Gidday Speed There would be loads of suppli...

I just wanted to show you all that we've made some progress over the last 6 weeks. I've assembled the building form over the last week and couldn't resist hanging a few frames on some scrap wood.............sort of looks like a boat!

Very nice work Justin, enjoy the ride :)

Re: Malahini Launch - my boat to be named later.

Very nice work Bob. I think I recall a similar smile at my first run :D
I particularly like your dash layout along with the line of maple through the middle, a very smart and neat job, well done.
Enjoyed your video's too, good job Hank I say.

Re: Monaco Veneer

I assume to get the finished wood look on the sides of my Monaco, I will have to apply a thin mahogany veneer. I'm thinking 1/8" think x 4" wide. I would bevel the edges and ends as I did with the plywood layers. Also, I can't decide whether to start at the chine or the sheer location. Any thoughts...

Re: Aussie Belle

Looking Good Jamie, sweet lines, love that tumblehome :D As suggested, very important to mark your batten lines on the ply strips as you work along your boat. You should be able to use your staple holes now to find your batten lines but I used a felt pen to mark batten lines (to enable sanding witho...
