Re: New member Sedalia MO

I made my Malahini frames out of white oak, little on the heavy side, but many redeeming qualities as well. I, like many others, order my marine plywood from Homestead in one big bulk shipment. Shipping cost sucks but in the grand scheme a mere drop in the bucket. https://www.marine-plywood.us/ Matt B

Re: Malahini Bow Rider porpoising

Is the motor trimmed all the way in? It looks up a little in the pictures. My Malahini starts porpoising about 35mph if I load it too heavy (5 adults+full fuel). I bought a set of small tabs but haven’t installed them yet. They’ll go through sea trials at the Gathering next month. I’ll let you know ...

Re: New member Sedalia MO

Welcome, central Missouri has many nice lakes well suited for the Malahini. Pound for pound, it’s hard to beat a Malahini for inland lakes. It’s easy sheet plywood construction, roomy, economical and has attractive lines for a sheet plywood boat. Have fun, we’re here to help if you hit a snag. Matt B

Re: Moving a boat

Flatbed trailer is super easy, I moved mine 300 miles. Frame isn’t very heavy, Two guys can lift it on and off the trailer.

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Wait till the prop and rudder is hanging down, then they’ll have a purpose.
My Supra tournament ski boat has a prop guard built into the trailer and I drag that thing all the time.

Re: modified malahini

Let’s see here, it’s 20 inches from the transom cutout to the keel, right? Where the motor gets mounted is fixed within a couple inches. With your added “V” aft I see a whole lot of water being displaced and I think your calculated waterline might turn out to be not as high as you think. I think you...

Re: modified malahini

Looks nice Bryan, flip that baby over, hang the motor, couple lawn chairs to sit on and hit it. I’m anxious to see how your hull performs.

Re: Utility build

I know everyone has seen this picture before but it will make you laugh at your little “oops”
Boat was a week old when I had to make this repair. If you don’t have to fish her off the bottom, it’s an easy fix.

Re: Coastal Cruiser vs. True Grit

You mentioned get somewhere at a “reasonable speed”. True Grit might not meet you expectation. Trying to extract more than about 12 mph from that hull is going to cost you in fuel. My idea of cruising speed is in the mid 20’s so a planning hull is the way to go for me. Someone enlighten me why True ...

Re: Coastal Cruiser vs. True Grit

I’m thinking about a 29 ft Nor’wester for my retirement boat. Single outboat, rooftop A/C, super quiet Honda Gen, cartridge toilet so no holding tanks to pump out or wintwrize, small fresh water tank for an emergency navy shower if needed. Who showers on a boat under 30ft anyway? go to the shower at...
