You never told us what your needs are, what do you want your boat to excell at?

Re: dry weight for a Malahini

It’s about a 1000 lbs without the motor. I have a light duty trailer with little 12” wheels, no problems.

Re: Florida Barrelback

John,,, I found a picture of the faired bow on my Palm Beach. It has a very similar bow profile to the BB. You will be sanding/planing a lot of wood off of the stem to get it fair.

Re: 65 HP long shaft on a zip

65 hp Merc weighs 190 lbs, a new Yamaha 40hp weighs 214 lbs, build a good motor well to tie it all together back there, Strap it on and floor it, it’ll be fine. That said, I would be respectful of rough water. Throwing more HP into the equation to try and go faster in a boat doesn’t have much effect...

Re: G14 weather
