Re: Prop size and pitch advise

The Acme 13x12.6 three blade is what I have. 19ft Monaco, 300hp, 1:1 velvet drive, wot 5000 rpm, top speed about 55mph.

I have tried several different props and this one worked best for me for overall use.
If we are mostly going to pull tubes or skiers I use an Acme 13x11

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

I also cleaned them before the epoxy set. Pieces of rag, Q-tips, what ever works. You should get under there to clean up and smooth out the drips and mess anyway.

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Looking back the waterline may not be exactly parallel with the stringers but its close. I don't remember exactly where I put the limbers but what you did sounds like you have it figured out. To be sure, there is nothing wrong with adding one a little forward and aft of where you figured. With that ...

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

I put my drain, bilge pump and a limber through the keel just behind frame 6. For the arthwartship limbers on the battens, I put them at the lowest point while the boat is at rest in the water. This is not at frame 6 for most of the battens because of the way the bottom is shaped. While the boat is ...

Re: Hello to Everyone from Phoenix

I think it would be fine. It is harder on a wood boat to have a drastically changing climate. Being inside will also help. I am in the central valley of California. My boat is outside with a cover, it’s in rain and 100+ heat. Plus once a year we take it to Arizona for a week and it is out in the sun...
