Re: monaco planking thickness

Like Roberta, I was thinking deck. The Tahoe sides are 2 layers of 3 or 4 mm ply + 1/8" veneer. The bottom is 4 layers total.

Re: monaco planking thickness

Roberta is right. Even 1/2" should make the crown bend. So, it's your choice. It is not critical! I step, walk, and jump onto my decks. It's a boat and I don't want to worry about it!

Re: monaco planking thickness

On the Tahoe, I used 3/8" sub-deck and 1/8" planking. I used Raptors to hold it in place till the epoxy set.

These are among the best! World class people come to them. This is the Lemak group in Birmingham. They said just move it till you feel it. They worked on my torn rotator cuff. I won't say painless. But, if you do your part, they will do their part.

Re: Stretching out the beam?

Mark I took a Bartender 22 and scaled it up to 24', just over 6%. I redid the lofting table and changed in all 3 directions. It now has an 8'4" beam and a little more freeboard. I'm very happy how it runs. I scaled up all the dimensions: butts, stem, spacing... I did not scale the main side dec...

Looks Good. I'm starting to understand. That is easier build than to draw.

Re: Can I compensate the thickness of aluminum to use a steel trailer print?

Stafford This can be done. But, a Structural Engineer will need to covert the steel sections to aluminum. Two things must be compared, strength and flex. Aluminum strength is easy to compare. Aluminum will be more flexible. My Al. trailers have galv. steel axles. If this for saltwater use you will w...

I've seen it on the Bartender cockpit sole. I don't know the cause. I used epoxy, which was not supposed to blush, by the directions. I finally sanded it, cleaned it, then wiped it down with denatured alcohol.

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Jim Of coarse, you are the one that you have to make happy! I have many mistakes on my boats. Most people are so overwhelmed by the whole boat they won't even notice. Only Dave Lott ever has said any thing negative about the Tahoe. Everyone else just wants a ride. The point is I did my best and I'm ...

I've become sensitive to epoxy. I've used MAS with slow hardener with good luck. West is really good. I used it on the Tahoe.

Re: Accuracy of Depth Sounders ??

On the Bartender, I have a Lowrance Elite 7 Chirp w/ Transom mount. One screen does show the relative size of the fish. This boat has unique transom arrangement. At full plane, I loose signal. I don't fish much. But, on the Alabama Gulf Coast you can get into skinny water quickly.
