Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

My hull ID plate isn't as nice, but the local trophy shop can make these for you.

Nice touch!

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Hi Carl, Your aft cabin layout makes a lot of sense, and sounds like it will fill your needs. I like the idea of a wrap around seating and there are several examples of this in past builds.

Re: Minnesota Squirt Build

Hi Brock,

I would epoxy a piece of scrap in that area and re-fair it. Check the sheers and other side as well, and do any "touch ups" at once to save epoxy and time. If you try to fill it in after the sides are on, you risk having gaps and dealing with cured epoxy in the gap.

Looking good.

Search for videos on strip canoes or kayaks. It sounds like you are trying to do the same thing they are doing.

If your wife is at least "tolerant" of your hobby, things will go much easier! Good luck, we'll be watching your progress. :D

Re: Coronavirus

I went to the supermarket yesterday to pick up a few things, and our paper aisle looked the same way. All the other aisles were reasonably well stocked, so I'm not sure why people are hoarding TP. It is like an old movie where there is a run on the banks "how does something like this start?"

Re: Hello and boat selection

+1 on Tom's comment. If you can move the form around, you should be able to get at any side/area that you need to.

There have been a few Gentrys built with a "mother In-Law" seat in front of the motor.
