Re: Clinton or Trump?

Hillory would blame the sinking ship on the Russians. Trump would blame it on Hillory for stealing rivets out of the hull or taking the water pump when she left the whitehouse. Am I violating the rules? My bad.

Re: Malahini w/90 Etec

A couple of extra knees and building a beefy motor-well should do it. My motor-well ties into frame 1 and with the plywood added to complete the box for drainage it really creates a strong assembly. IMG_0654.JPG IMG_0655.JPG I like that a lot especially how you tied into frame #1. A beefy motor wel...

Re: Malahini w/90 Etec

The 320 lb 90 is a 3 cylinder. The 115 (old models) come in at 375. The 115HO comes in at 390 lbs and all the new 115's come in at 390 lbs. The 115 is a V4.

Re: Malahini w/90 Etec

Stromz A few years ago we went to Ambergris Cay, Belize. There are lots of fishing boats and water taxies. At a restaurant/bar that was a few doors up the beach we met a man who has a lot of maintenance contracts on the commercial boats. He said that the sand there is mostly broken shells and corra...

Re: Malahini w/90 Etec

Hi Dave. Just curious, what year is your HO? Hello Mr. Dave, My 150HO ETEC is a 2013MY. Bought it used a couple summers ago with 1 season on it and about 75 hrs. Will probably take it in next spring and get on the diagnostic for software updates and a hardcopy of the hours. Been kicking around the ...

Re: Malahini w/90 Etec

Stromz The E-Tec is a very good engine from all reports that I've seen. Bill Currently have an ETEC 150HO and previously owned an ETEC 130 (V4)...have had excellent success with ETEC's. Their fuel consumption I believe is on par with any 4-stroke. They burn clean, consume very little oil and relati...

good for glue clean-ups too :D
I'm interested. Please tell me more. What is it? How does it work? And would it carve out a batten slot with the back transom ply in position without hacking up the back transom ply?

Re: Malahini Transom Angle

Thanks Bill and Bob. Sounds like if I cut everything fat then perhaps I should leave the outer ply off until I get the bottom beveled and battens in place since the battens butt up to the outer ply? I'm thinking that carving out for the battens with the outer ply bonded to the frame would be a pain....

Re: Malahini Transom Angle

I think I have the answer - thank you DSR! The book states the full size pattern drawings are to the back of the transom. If that's the case then I will need to add 0.159" to the bottom outer 3/4" ply, 0.319" to the bottom of the frames, and for my 3/4" ply onto the frame on the inside...that bottom...

Malahini Transom Angle

My transom drawing does not show a double line at the bottom. Technically if there's an angle I would think the drawing would show it. SO, before I make the cut I wanted to check in with Team Glen-L builders. Do I follow protocol and cutout the transom per the drawing, angle the transom and then cut...

Re: Battens - 3/4" or 7/8" ?

... measure from the work as you go, using the drawing to determine the centerline of the notch. It will be a rare notch that is perfectly square to the frame and you need to allow for the angle, often compound, when you cut. A short piece of your batten lumber makes a great guide for getting accur...

Re: Battens - 3/4" or 7/8" ?

I agree. Problem is if you follow the drawing (which in most worlds rules), you would then have to shim the notch back up for 3/4" stock. Obviously knowing the situation, I won't follow the drawing and instead will notch to 3/4". This being the case, it would be nice to see the drawing reflect 3/4" ...

Battens - 3/4" or 7/8" ?

Malahini online writeup clearly explains that all 1" stock is cut down to 3/4" plus/minus. So I roll out the drawings and I'm measuring 7/8" thickness on the bottom battens ? What am I missing here? Or do we care? As an engineer, this sort of thing is frustrating. Is all the other 1" frame stock als...

Malahini w/90 Etec

Could somebody give feedback on what kind of performance I can expect to see with a Malahini using an Evinrude ETEC 90 ?
