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.

Re: Newbie with questions

Have a serious look at the Geronimo design. It is very versatile, a greater freeboard for more open water. At 16 feet it can be shortened by up to 10% (1.6 feet) by why would you if you really don'ty have to.
Just my opinion but take a look.

Re: Tahoe 23

Well we are back and I am in to it. The holiday was great. I am not a person who could go on a cruise ship with a couple of thousand other people, but small ship cruising is a totally different world. Only 100 passengers instead of thousands. It is like staying in a luxury hotel compared to a Las Ve...

Re: Cabin Design Considerations

Carl Living in a place that probably has a climate similar to Texas I personally think the Sedan cruiser is the better option. Also from the picture there seems to be much more room for people to move around.Sitting is fine underway but when you are anchored and socializing people want to be able to...
