Pictures of the Monte Carlo

Post by dsolaro »

I had promised pictures of the Monte Carlo "MERCOLEDI" over the weekend, and now have a few that I was able to transfer to this computer. I have a short checklist in order to get this in the water for the official launching on June 9th.

1. fix a small fuel leak in the vent line that was discovered this weekend.
2. get the boat into the local dealer to have the impeller changed and motor run through the paces.
3. get the mussel inspection for Lake Tahoe.
4. hope the weather cooperates.
5. pray that it floats and have fun.

That should just about cover it.

That's a beautiful boat. Lake Tahoe seems quite appropriate for a boat like that. I am still amazed that so many people can build a great boat like that and only have a handful of posts in the forum. Again, congratulations and take more photos when you launch her.

Few things in the world measure up to the thrill and satisfaction of boating in a boat that you built.

Great job! Good luck on the launch. Take some videos of the boat in action.

You know it will float since you built, sanded and sealed every inch of the hull. Don't forget to put in drain plugs if you have them.
