Re: Malahini battens.

I also pulled mine down with a wire or a small rope before laying down the bottom planking. It worked well for me. I think pushing it down with the planking would be a pretty tough go. I believe I used something like a screen door eye to thread into the batten and another screwed into the building f...

Re: A new Zip Gentleman's Racer

Looking back, I remember I did add four extra deck battens along side the motor well for extra strength. I regret not mentioning that. It's been a few years back, and I tend to forget. :oops:

Re: Texas Boatbuilders - Power Boats Section

Not really, Cedar Creek Lake is down six foot or so. One boat ramp left here. You can drive to Lake LBJ it is a constant level lake about an hour north of you. I think there is a wooden boat club around Austin. I am a member of the Texas Antique Outboard Motor Club. We have lots of wooden boats alon...

Re: A new Zip Gentleman's Racer

Recovering the deck and getting it fair was probably the hardest part . I built a frame to hold the deck, one quarter inch below it and faired the frame. At this point I thought it was just a matter of fastening plywood to the frame with a little filler here and there and I was home. Not so, it took...

Re: A new Zip Gentleman's Racer

Hey Folks, I'm back after an extended absence. It's good to see people are still building boats and having fun doing it! When I first built the "Zip" in 07 , I thought it would be cool to make a GR out of it, but stayed with the plans. Last winter I needed a project and you see what happen...

Re: Help Get Ethanol out of Premium Gasoline

Last year I had one station with real gas, now it has the crap in it's gas. All that Ethanol did for us , was to make the price of food go up. My Mercury guy say's to pour it out, if it's more than 30 day's old. It's just a sad situation .

Re: Texas Malahini Build

Thank You All, for the kind comments. Iggy, I will try and get more pictures this weekend. We are going to the Bi-Annual Antique Outboard Motor meet at Lake LBJ and maybe I can get some better shots? I don't have any complaints about how it handles with the 115. Like I mentioned before , the bow is ...

Re: Texas Malahini Build

Hey Guy's A few pictures of Christening day last Saturday. My wife is pouring very cheap champagne over the bow. It was a great day and all turned out well. I need to play with props some and try and get the bow up a little more at top speed. http://i825.photobucket.com/albums/zz176/jrl194861/Christ...

Re: How to Attach the Skeg?

I'm sorry I don't have pictures of the skeg. Now that it is on the trailer it would be hard to get one that would help out. Yes , I had it built it full length as the plan called for and then I read in the book to shorten it for higher horsepower. I knew that I was going in that direction so I just ...

Re: How to Attach the Skeg?

I don't know what horse power that you are going to use, but the book said, best I can remember, for higher horse power to shorten the skeg. The end of my skeg is four feet from the transom edge. After about three hours in the water, I'm satisfied with how it turns and handles with little cavitation...
