Re: Malahini performance

Link to Malahini pulling kids tubing at about 20 mph. Boat is capable of pulling them waaay too fast.

Re: Tucker's Squirt

Use the permanent mounting holes on the motor, not the clamps. Even SS bolts with large washers will dent the transom, so I used this mounting bar.

Re: Plywood damaged.

I had to made a repair last year, no big deal after I got over the initial shock of a hole in my boat. Like Bill said, cut out damage and make a patch to fit the cut out. Big butt block behind it, some finish work and it’s good as new.

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Bang, done, cupcake icing bag with a small tip. Loosened up the Famowood with the acetone thinner product they sell and it squeezed right out and didn’t harden in the bag, worked perfect. Used a piece of scrap wood to scrape all the material to the tip. Whole boat done in an hour with 1 can of Famow...

Are any of the gaps big enough for little slivers of wood?


No, we’re talking 1/16th max. Much of the seams are tight.

Re: Glen L Malahini for sale.

Pretty basic level Malahini with an old motor. Not critiquing it, my boats don’t win any fit and finish ribbons either. Cool to look at, thanks for sharing Chris.
Have you bought anything to fill the space your Zip left behind after you sold it?

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Getting Famowood into the seams is time consuming and wastes a lot of product. I tried putting the filler in a zip lock bag and cutting the corner off the bag as an applicator, that sort of worked. I wish Famowood was sold in a caulk tube, I’m going to try a cake icing bag with a small tip. I’ll hav...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Logged about 6 hours on the Random Orbital with 60grit today. Worked out well enough. Next, Famowood the gaps between planks and dents left by the Raptor nailer.
