Re: Where to start...

Iggy: I just went back and read (most of) you entire thread. Very inspiring. I just started a barrelback, my first build, and I could really relate to your early posts. What have I got myself into? I don't have the skills, tools, _____, to do this. Frustrations and set backs and the all consuming o...

Re: Where to start...

Happy summer folks. Got Old Black Rum out on the water quite a bit this year, able to add to my families memories including: - Daughters boyfriend fishing and catching his first with us. - Nephew catching is first fish with us (casting only 4ft from the boat at a time, but not bad for a 6yr old) - S...

Re: Where to start...

Hello builders.. a few updates: I just finished converting Old Black Rum's boat trailer from bulbs to LED lights will all new wiring. Took 2 days... more time than I expected but there were a lot of finicky things I had to deal with. The new LED light components were 'thicker', and their hole spaces...

Re: Where to start...

Great story, Iggy. Congratulations!!! and shopped a hundred or so RV dealerships... and a just today we drove home or new RV camper. But, you do know that Glen-L just happens to sell RV plans, don't you? I did, but to be honest that didn't cross my mind at this time. It did in the past.. but my wif...

Re: Where to start...

Hello fellow boat-builders! I hope everyone is still happily covered in dust and epoxy since I last dropped in. I've been busy finishing the basement of my home... not quite as fun as building a boat, costs about the same amount also... but still happily keeping my hands busy... till about 2 months ...

Re: Monroe Mahalini

Malahini's a fantastic boat.. the process of building (and now owning/operating) one is both a cherished memory and and a yearly pleasure. I also work in construction but was NO woodworker before starting my build. You'll do fantastic I am sure.. this forum is a godsend when it comes to questions an...

Re: Where to start...

Quick update. About 5 years ago I posted a Part 1 of 2 video diary of the construction of my Malahini. Then my video editing software wouldn't work on my new operating system so I didn't complete Part 2. 4 Years ago I launch Old Black Rum and made a video of the launch along with some build pictures...

Re: Malahini in West Virginia

Hi there Crankie! As a fellow Malahini builder I fully recommend adding the spray rails. Our boats don't have the compound curve front's of the strip-planked hulls, so waves don't get redirected back down but rather battered away. The spray rails will keep you a lot dryer, and it might help pick the...

Re: Malahini from Texas

Hi Ryan! Sorry to hear about the water in the hull, you can go ahead and put a drain-hole in the transom if you like at this stage, no real good reason I can think of to do that later on in the build. I used DF as a core for my Transom, if you're going painted and fully sealed with epoxy can't see a...

Re: Structural role of gussets

A Malahini is rated for up to a 60HP if memory serves. My Zip runs a 50 and takes quite a beating. ... I am using a Mariner 90 HP myself as I am towing the kids (and myself now and then) behind her. I am not sure if I did the math right, but the legal HP limit (coast guard) for a 16' boat could be ...

Re: Structural role of gussets

On my Malahini I just capped the open tops between the plywood gussets with a solid piece of Sapelle Mahogany and cut my plywood floors around them. http://www.glen-l.com/phpBB2/download/file.php?id=5990&mode=view You don't want any flaws in the wood to become a crack in your frame... the gussets br...

Re: Roberta's Torpedo

Damn that's a great looking boat Roberta! Its a tribute not only to the naval architect who designed her, but the amazing talents and uncanny craftsmanship of the person who brought her to life. I can't think of a boat more deserving of the name Glen-L... but I also can't think of a builder I would ...

Re: Where to start...

It's been crazy hot around here lately, but I managed to get the battery moved to under the front deck. I used a #4 gauge 14' booster cable, put battery leads on both ends, build a cradle and used a kids seatbelt I bought from Canadian Tire to hold down the battery box. Starts up fine.. no noticeabl...
