Re: modified malahini

My state does not inspect these boats per USCG regulations so my fuel setup was as basic as they come. I did not use an approved fill hose, no shutoff valve in the fuel line, no carbon can, no spitback valve. 10 years and no problems.

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Beauty! It's been great watching this build, you are getting really close now!

I kinda wish I had done the white caulk instead of inlay-ed contrasting strips of basswood due to caulk allowing for better expansion and contraction and repair-ability.

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

I've always really liked the teal paint in contrast with the wood. Nice job on the build. Thanks for the update!

Re: Vroom vroom is gone

Man! Seems like I am hearing more and more of these kinds of thefts from hotels. Motorcycles, boats, collector cars, etc. Many of them quite unique vehicles. Makes me wonder if they end up overseas.

Re: Michael's ZIP
