Really Inspiring. If mine turns out half as good, I'd be happy.

Re: Tahoe 23

Well things never progress as quick as you think or want them to, but there you go. On a more positive note though, after a two and a half year waltz with cancer my last blood tests came back with my markers undetectable. I'm very happy with that although I may have a vested interest. Yesterday I fi...

Have a look at "Tahoe 20 - New Zealand Progress". It may give you some ideas.

Re: Tahoe 23

My wife decided the bathroom needed a renovation before Christmas and visitors so the final coat of paint has been delayed. I still hope to have it done before Christmas. As for the flip I have 2 1ton chain blocks and the rafters of the shed will take the load and rather fortunately are in exact the...

So close you can taste it! I bet you are straining at the bit to get into the water. Great boat.

Re: Help please!! Australian lumber

For the wider boards, try a local joinery works. That is where I got all my hoop pine for the frames etc. If you are looking for sapele then try Britton's. They are a large timber company in most capital cities and were half the price of anyone else.

Re: Tahoe 23

Thanks everyone,Yes you are right Carl, it does tend to spoil the lines but once it is all clear coated and a more even colour hopefully it will lessen. Better dry though. Yes flip not too far away. Trackhappy generously gave me his dolly after he was finished with it, so I just have to install some...

Re: Tahoe 23

Skeg and spray rails finished and attached to the boat. I ran the spray rails pretty much the whole length of the chine. They were screwed from the outside and screw holes plugged. Touched up the bottom undercoat and am now ready to put the final coats on the bottom.

Re: Tahoe 23

Thanks everyone. Just about finished shaping the spray rails. Still can decide to epoxy them on or use a sealant like 3M 4200. Will screw and plug from the outside though.

Re: Tahoe 23 shifting motor further to the stern.

I'm not very knowledgable about such things but I think your shaft angle would steepen quite a bit. Perhaps turning the motor around and using a V-drive could work.
