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...

Re: Tahoe 23

Undercoat/primer is finished. Used a 2 pac high build primer and happy with the result. Next comes the top coat which will be a 2 pac poly in a dark blue. This won't happen foe about 8 weeks as my wife and I are going on our first overseas holiday. It is our 30th wedding anniversary and we are both ...

Beautiful finish. I'll be happy if mine is anywhere near as good as that.

Re: Tahoe 23

Finished epoxying and sanding and finally ready to start painting the bottom. You don't know (or probably quite a few of you do) how good it feels to be moving on to a new phase. It really felt like I was bogging down and would never get to a flip. Using a high build 2 pac undercoat and will finish ...

Re: Extending the Tahoe 23 to 24'2"

Donn It's looking good. Even with my building frame height it was still low work on shaping the sheer notches, but any higher and I would not have been able to reach the keel. One thing I would have done if I was doing it again would be to drill the shaft hole and rudder holes before planking. (See ...

Spray rails

Screw spray rais from the outside and plug or screw from the inside?
If you screwed from the inside through the chine it would be easier to replace if damaged. Yes or no?
What type of sealant would you use to attach the spray rail?
