Re: Propeller taper

You most likely have a Morse taper shaft. Morse taper is most common in UK and Australia. The American tapers are SAE. You can buy a bushing so you can use an SAE taper prop, but the prop bore will need to be 1.125" with a 1" shaft.

Re: Installing a strong towing eye

Stephen Like you I had concerns too. As previously suggested I used a threaded eye with a stainless steel plate under the nut. A cable was then connected to a second hole in the plate using a thimble and the cable was connected to another plate in the same fashion then attached to the stem to keel b...

Re: Monaco

In relation to moving the engine back, you don't have a lot to play with anyhow. Where the prop shaft comes out is a governing point. Surprisingly I found with my boat with the fuel tank half full it performs the best when loaded from the front. That is, 3 across the front before anybody in the rear...

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

Mick The box is vented using four Glen-L clam shell vents. Two facing forward with air entering at the top of the box and two facing aft drawing air from the bottom of the box, these have a vent blower each. I've kept the clam shell vents as far outboard as practical so they aren't shielded by the o...

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

Hi
I built a Monaco with the engine boxed in. I have no insulation just 3/16" (4mm) ply. You cannot hear the engine in cruise other than the exhaust out the back. The induction air is taken from outside of the box. Inside engine compartment temperatures are low.

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

I found that I needed to install some temporary braces between the battens and the stringers at bay 0-1 as bending the ply around the curve of the side at that point tended to pull the battens in, upsetting the fair of the sides. I was using 3/16" ply.

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Hi Michael
Glad to hear the engine is running fine. Just for interest my 1UZ runs at 180 degrees F all day. This temp is measured via the Faria dash instrument only. Likewise all I can hear in the engine bay is the Carter fuel pump on the surge tank.

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Lee I laid two full sheets at 45 degrees starting at the transom which got me to frame 6. You end up with big triangular pieces left over, but most of these will get sliced up and used up front. I used one triangular piece from the rear sheet to fill the triangular gap left behind that sheet and the...

The toilet paper obsession is not unique to the northern hemisphere. Down under we are having the same problem???? The slang name is a dunny roll. See https://morningmail.org/ballad-of-the-dunny-roll/

If anyone has had concerns about snapping battens you have to watch episode 67 of Sampson Boat Company. See sampsonboat.co.uk

Congratulations on a fine build. I hope you are having fun as I see others are. I believe we have 4 Monacos in the water down under now. Be nice one day to get them all together. I like your honesty on the bush fires and not being caused by climate change, gay marriages and the sort.

Boat is looking great. Good to hear you are getting it sorted. Aren't they nice on the water. Can you arrange to send some of that rain down this way.

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Lee I don't think you are out of the woods yet. I found the hardest curves were the side battens upfront. I broke one, but at that time Glen had just written an article on battens. See Web Letter 105, "Designers Notebook : Battens". As suggested I cut a kerf on the side battens back from the stem fo...

Best to keep the engine, fuel tank and battery as far away from each other as possible.
