Re: Monaco Restart

What a good looking deck, great choice of wood, clearly put together really well and the finish looks top class, well done.

Re: Malahini in Ireland

That's a good point about salt water but my malahini will never see salt water unless I get badly lost :D

Re: Malahini in Ireland

Based on the weight of around 600Kg I am going to use a braked torsion axle setup with a carrying capacity of 1300Kg. I'm not finished the trailer chassis yet but Iexpect it to be around 350Kg so there is a bit of additional capacity there.

Thanks agin!!

Re: Malahini in Ireland

I think I will put in itermediate floor supports and reduce the floor thickness to half inch. On another note I am looking at boat trailers and I was wondering what the finished weight is likely to be? I know that obviously depends on the engine and a few other variables but what is the dry no engin...

Re: Malahini in Ireland

Thanks for that, not flooring under the seats will save alot of weight and will allow me to put in some storage. Another point of view is always a great help!!

Re: Malahini in Ireland

I am slowly making progress on framing the deck and almost have it ready to do the final glue up and fix in place. Its great to be making saw dust after all the coats of paint and epoxy before the flip. I am starting to think about what to do for floow boards. 20170612_181233.jpg 20161106094518_IMG_...

Re: Malahini in Ireland

I'm going to pour flotation foam under the floor and I have a few questions: I want the flotation to be removable so that at the end of a season I can lift the floor remove the foam blocks and inspect the structure of the boat. If I was to pour the foam into a large bin bag under the floor sections ...

Re: Malahini in Ireland

I decided to get a marine stereo for my Malahini and I got 4 speakers with it for $100 delivered. I tested the sound quality yesterday and it is pretty good but the louder it gets you can hear that it is missing a sub. There is a RCA output so at least I can add an amp in the future. 20180115_203425...

Re: Aussie Gentry

Great looking deck. The outer pattern reminds me of strip built kayaks.
Great work

Re: Malahini in Ireland

I got some work done on the motor well today. I ran out of oak so I could only do one side but I think I thve the shape worked out now so it shouldnt take too long to finish. 20180101_160037.jpg I also cut the piece of mahogany that I intend to use for the dsah to length to get an idea of the size o...

Re: Malahini in Ireland

I'm looking for a 3 cylinder 4 stroke engine around 60hp, with low hours and at a great price, should be easy :?
I have my eye on 2 engines at the moment but I'm not very familiar with what I should be looking for. Anyone have an idiot's guide for how to not buy a bad engine?

Re: Malahini in Ireland

Richie, Your boat is looking great! After the flip, the fun really begins. I am really enjoying this part of the build on my boat. Here's a couple of answers to your questions: I had a runabout that had a car stereo and It worked just fine. The stereo was in a compartment with a door that would clo...

Re: Malahini in Ireland

Thanks Jim, having flipped it now the white stripe on the starboard side has a kink in it that I will have to rework. 20171220_193833.jpg I detached the boat from the frame and had just about enough room to fully roll it over in a single movement, I used an inflatable matrice to protect it. I had it...
