machining rudder post for tiller arm

I noticed that my Glen L rudder post is not machined for the key way or clamp bolt of the tiller arm . Is this something I need to take to a machine shop to have done or can someone advise how this can be done in my shop? I have a grinder, drill press, and other tools, but a little timid . I have no...

Re: Placement of prop and strut after stretching Monte Carlo

Thanks for this thread as it was spot on time for my similar question of spacing. I have a secondary question which may seem silly, but I must ask. The rudder stuffing box through hull I purchased from Glen L measures 2 3/4" in length. On my Monaco build, my hull thickness measures 2 1/4". I did off...

Re: Flexible coupling

Thanks Billy, I missed that photo somehow. Makes me think if I go the same way as Bruce, see what happens by way of vibration, I could always make the modifications to change back over to a flexible coupling. This will allow me to press on. You have given me back clarity and a direction. I've been a...

Re: Flexible coupling

The mounts I was looking at, the df206, may be a little more flexible than the Barr marine. The Barr marine shows capacity of 350 lbs per mount, the df 206 shows each mount will carry much more weight, up to 850 lbs per mount, which sounds better to me. But can say about the total flexibility. I had...

Re: Flexible coupling

Thanks for your replies. I rebuilt a 283 Flagship flywheel forward Billy and changed the block to a 350 cu in '71 sbc. I had Flagship Marine in Punta Gorda finish it up for me by adding a new flywheel housing, alternator bracket and alternator and carb set up. It is with a 71C transmission I rebuilt...

Flexible coupling

Hello all. Preparing to install engine in my Monaco . Reading some threads and the "inboard motor installation book", it says if I use dual flex motor mounts, I must use a flexible coupling. If I choose to do a rigid motor installation, I have a choice of using a flexible coupling or a steel to stee...

Re: Monaco Caper

Thought I was retired, but business and duty calling .

Still may try to make the outing, if possible, to meet some of you.

Think you made a great decision. You're building the foundation for your boat here.

Good luck with your build.

Re: Epoxy glue for frames & screw size

Jim You can find epoxy resin and slow hardener at your local west marine shop. For gluing your frames yow will also need some filler to create a glue (thicken) for your epoxy . They should have that also. The first thing I ordered from glen l was the fasteners. Finding the sizes you need at a walk i...

Re: Monaco Caper

After a few weeks on family vacation, and catching up with chores, back at it. Bottom paint completed: 3 coats interlux racing bronze over Interlux 2000 protect. Roller application. Can see some of the roller marks but the fish won't care. Definitely respirator needed. The "turn" in a couple of week...

Glad you asked. Yesterday was one of those days, only to be out done by last Tuesday.

Tony

Still healing, but also though the argument was sound. :?

Bill,

Nicely done: " It's your fault honey"

I will try that next.

It will all be forgotten when I take her out for an cruise in our new boat.

Re: Depresion After the Turn

Bill, It seems that when I took the time to concentrate on the boat, also retired, monthly purchases went way up, to the point the wife started noticing all the boxes coming from vendors all over the country. Prior to that, I was able to go virtually unnoticed. Working on a boat over a couple to few...
