Re: introduction

Welcome! Lots to consider there... I'd say if you're thinking Lake Michigan choose the big Tahoe and pick a calm day to run on it. It is widely held that the older designs with the vertical bows won't take much chop.

Re: Steve B. Checking in from NH!

Welcome Steve! My wife is from Loudon so I know the turf you're in pretty well. I should think the wood sources around there are pretty good and I'm totally jealous that you have such a big beautiful lake to look forward to when you're done. ACBS show paraphernalia I saw in Wolfeboro in 2014 is what...

Re: Norwegian Barrelback 20'

No matter what you'll have to "spile" the planking to get it to match up, this takes some work with scribe and trim methods. Search the internet for some videos. The other thing is that in the bow areas you'll be laying a flat piece over a concave surface so be sure to apply a LIBERAL amount of epox...

Re: Fuel Tank suggestions?

Thanks for the feedback Dave. I'm pretty well settled on the 27 gallon Moeller tank I linked above as it will fit the best and it's the closest I can get to 30 gallons. Should have enough head space for the fill tube and the dual exhaust to pass by the sides.

Re: Fuel Tank suggestions?

I'll have to check the fuel system but the used power plant I bought had a carb with a return line back to the pump? More like a bowl overflow line than anything.

Re: Fuel Tank suggestions?

Wow! Is that enough capacity to go round trip from Hales bar to Chattanooga and back?

Just trying to judge what makes sense, 27 gallons or go for 30 gallons, more is always better but at what expense?

Re: Fuel Tank suggestions?

Thanks Bill, I saw that one at Wholesale Marine and it's pricey bugger but you pay for the aluminum fabrication. I think you needed that for the diesel?

Fuel Tank suggestions?

Tahoe 21' Looking for a fuel tank suggestion, what works for the space? The instructions call out a custom made 30 gallon tank but I think something off the shelf will have to do... Perhaps this one from Moeller? http://www.moellermarine.com/moeller-marine/fuel-containment/27-gallon-permanent-below-...

Re: Ready to flip

Thank you! The garage is pretty damned dirty these days but at certain points I blow it all out... The garage space was by design, we built the house too.
