Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Thanks for the replies, I’ll let the moths out of my wallet and buy a couple mufflers. Jim, I had the same thought about the price of the hose vs the muffler, less hose you have to buy. I’m going to have a $1000 bucks in this exhaust setup, it’s not like buying a couple cherry bomb mufflers from the...

Re: CNC Conversion

Beautiful boat you have started, the keel beam is massive. How do you keep your boat shop so tidy?

Re: What? Hagerty doesn't insure plywood boats?

Hagerty has my Malahini insurance. I told them is was a Glen L Malahini and that was the end of it. If hull material ever comes up, well, it’s Oak, Doug Fir and fiberglass. Does Hagerty know how much crap plywood is in an entry level Bayliner?
Grrr,

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I’m setting up my exhaust, mufflers or no mufflers? What have guys done on their boats? I don’t want it to sound like a Bayliner but rumble just enough to not alert my wife to excessive noise.
Mufflers aren’t cheap either, $200 a pop.

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Cool transom you’ve got there! I’m installing the raw water pickup (Barrelback) right now too. I like your plan of a T handle for garden hose hookup. An added bonus of a 2 way set up like that is it’s a giant bilge pump too. Amazing how fast the engine at 3000 rpm will suck water and spit it out the...

Re: Squirt with a long shaft 9.9

A 9.9 hp won’t hurt a Squirt. Do you have a second 9.9? Twins would look great on a Squirt.

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Rudder is all gooped in with 5200. Now on to final drive alignment. Building a cold-mold, straight inboard boat is a significantly more involved task than building the Malahini. I didn’t realize how many components are self contained in an outboard motor, drive shafts and bearings, steering, cooling...

FamoWood Mahogany would be my filler of choice. Thickened epoxy will darken too much.

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

Decking looks very nice. I never worry too much about matching up wood grain and color, an odd one here and there adds character to me.
Very nice indeed.

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

5200 is awfully sticky. I have to seal the bolts and between the hole in the boat and the rudder port.
