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 forum. Any...

Bow Plate Fabrication

I am building the Monaco (see my string "Monaco Restart" in the Power Boat section). 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...

Re: Damage to Malahini

Bayou Bengal - Sorry that happened but as previously noted, a great repair job. I like that ladder and want something similar for my Monaco. Can you tell me where you purchased it and the details?

Re: Overniter in SC: Flipped 5-27-17

Great looking boat. I really got into high gear after my flip since you can finally see it's potential and some light at the end of the tunnel. Can't wait to watch as you finish it. Speed Racer.

Re: Monaco Restart

Thanks for clearing that up Skip. Correct. I have 5 1/8” from the end of the shaft to the rear end of the strut. No prop is installed yet. Like I said, now I wish I had purchased the prop before completing this stage of work. Oh well – As a superintendent I once had always said, “It is what it is”. ...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

I am building the Monaco, very similar to the Riviera I think. See the photo attached. I place the pick up just behind the first frame which is about 24" forward of the stern. The idea is to make sure the pick-up stays in the water while on plane so as not to starve the engine of cooling water. More...

Re: Monaco Restart

Thanks for all of the advice. I had seen and reviewed with great interest of what the proper length of shaft should be and what had happened to Neel. In fact, off forum, Skip provided additional comments from his Monaco build. He and I ended up with the length of 5" for now. Since I am using an 1 1/...

Re: Monaco Restart

A few progress photos. I've gotten the engine set and aligned to the shaft. I ended up with 5 1/8" shaft beyond the strut. Should be good to go. Installed the water intake strainer and plumbed it. Also installed the exhaust ports and hoses. This weekend I plan to install the steering cylinder and fi...
