Re: Rub Rail Bending

I was originally going with 3/4” hollow back rub rails and my thought was to fill the hollow backside with caulk level with the edges to keep it from collapsing. The cost for the shipping was staggering, so I never got to try my theory out. I’m making my own now from stock 1/2”x1/8” stainless, round...

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

My brother made me this identification plate for my boat. I’m putting it in the motor well.

Boats on hold for now as momma wants the staircase reworked. But I did get a little further making my rub rails.

Re: Florida Malahini Build

That turned out good. I never thought of that. I welded mine from two 18ga pieces because I followed the contour. It was challenging. That really sucks about the ladder. Hope it didn’t doo too much damage. The old school 650 and the new 60 CT Merc’s are right at 2.33:1 too. The new standard thrust M...

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

Neel, the Palm Beach 22 has been my dream boat for years. I even purchased and printed the plans (which I have close to $500 invested). But, I chickened out and went with the Malahini because I thought it would take too long to build the PB and I wanted to be on the lake now! I have been watching yo...

Re: Otter's Ski Bass

You may very well see the butt joint. I did the most wrong thing you can do and I can see it like a star in the night, but no one has said, wow, what did you do there? When people look at your boat, they will only see the big picture and totally miss those details you spent hours perfecting. I built...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Good idea how you made your mock up. Got some good ideas from the guys. In the end, it’s all about what style you were going after. You have the right materials to play with and your a good craftsman. I played around with the closed cabin or a more airy cabin too. Happy building. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Outrage progress

Worst case, you’ll get some water spots. The epoxy will cure.

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

Great suggestion Bill. Wish I had done that first.

Invest in some screw clamps (F-type) too. You’ll find times you’ll need the extra pressure they can produce.

Re: Malahini from MD

Looks beautiful man. Very nice job on everything. You will not be disappointed with the engine your getting. Look at Biss’ post. I believe he said he put a 17p for his prop and said that worked great.

Looking great, Carl. Amazing how fast the space goes away when you start putting things In it. I have a flame stool too. Lol

I was thinking of doing the same thing with mine. How much trouble did you have drilling them straight through?

Re: Console Skiff build

You’ve probably entertained this thought, but could you build the sea knight hull then build an open cockpit with a center console?
Just a thought.
