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...

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 Boats. Whe...

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.
