Re: Matt's Geronimo

Smart thinking on the ladder there, McGuiver. 😀👍 Glad your having so much good luck with the prop. I did try the 4 blade first, but it didn’t help me with the porpoising. It did give me a better hole shot. What really helped me Were the trim tabs. All my weight is in the stern, and when I had 4 peop...

Re: Malahini performance

Wouldn’t that be sweet, Matt.
My 12 year old granddaughter was complaining about the spray, so we put a ball in the middle of the tow rope. That stopped most of it.

Re: Malahini performance

I put trim tabs on my Malahini because it had a lousy hole shot and porpoised bad.
I don’t think it really changed my top end, but I do get a little more center spray. I mounted them towards the chine too.
What a difference in take off and NO more porpoising.

Re: Matt's Geronimo

I went from a 3 blade to a 4 blade power prop on mine and it improved my hole shot. I don’t have any problem with cavitation, but I have my motor set just a bit lower.

Enjoying some time with my granddaughter and teaching her how to drive it.
She’s a natural.

Re: Malahini from MD

Glad your getting it on the water. Everyone is amazed a how smooth my boat rides, but it does hit wakes hard. I always throttle back when I see them coming.
Good luck with the insurance. Sounds like they have some real geniuses working for them.

Re: Maritime Malahini

I used drywall screws in a couple of places where I needed to fit and refit, but not on the hull. I screwed everything down with SB and left them in place.
Boats looking good.

Re: Malahini from MD

WOOHOOO!!! Glad to see it done and running. Malahini’s don’t ride well fast on choppy waters. Ive hit a couple waves so hard I thought my hull would crack open.
So happy to see her in the water. Congrats!

Re: Malahini from MD

I live on a lake, so my boat is covered under my homeowners insurance. Had no problem.
I made a plate for my boat, but didn’t put down capacity. In reality, any more than four adults and it’s hard to get up on plane.
So glad to hear your getting her in the water. Congratulations!
