Re: Malahini from MD

I did the same thing with my stern. My deck boards were crooked by 1/8". You really can't see it unless you are looking for it, but my deck boards are 1/4" different from the left side to the right. I'm just going to live with it, but I don't like it. So if it bothers you and it's not too much troub...

Re: The Fletchers Malahini

Just a thought as it probably isn't in your plan, but there is another option and that's building it like mine. There is ample leg room in my boat. Although you loose the storage box's, there is more than enough room to move around in (don't mind the battery in the pic, its just sitting there). It a...

Nice job on the forward deck. It's coming together nicely.

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

I was afraid to take my cutwater off after tacking it up for fear it would warp welding it. Everything came together beautifully, Biss.
It’ll be a head turner everywhere it goes.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

I bought the Ridgid contractors table saw several years ago from Home Depot and have had great luck with ripping hundreds of cuts. I did find, like someone said, the mahogany has a lot of internal stress and a straight board ripped down to squirly boards.

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

So close to being done. This year, like last year, we hosted the lakes water skiers. They used to do the pyramid. They have been doing this for 20 years, but now that they are getting older, they just try to get as many behind one boat as they can. Last year they tried pulling up 15 and ended with 1...

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

From this side view, It's obvious that I need to move my axle back further to get the proper balance. Had to put some weight on the tongue just to be safe. it's only a few pounds heavier on the tongue and you can lift it with a finger.

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

I got my seat back. I set it in place. I wanted to have the seats done before I built the frame, so I was sure it would fit right, so it's just sitting on the floor. You get the idea what it's going to look like anyway. I got the safety glass installed in the frames I made and got it all installed o...

Re: Malahini from MD

Good eye. Yes it is an Anvil. LOL! I need to move my axle back a little. The boat was fine until I put the engine on it. The tongue stays down, but it's really light. I also had to put jack stand under the rear to keep it from tipping up when I get into it.

Re: Malahini from MD

Looking for old engines, I've found many boats with engines and trailers from $500-$1000 on Facebook Market Place. I was going to buy the whole set up like that, pull the engine and parts and take the boat to the transfer station, dump it and keep the trailer. Chances are, no matter what you find, i...

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

We made copies. Like you, I wanted to keep my originals and I was happy to see he took the copies. I bought some things online that weren't taxed, so I figured I'd be honest and claim them. You'd think I would have learned by now. :lol: Can't wait until I can kick back and put my feet up on my dash ...

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

Transom bands look great. Those as well as the cut water, are real nice accents. I'll be working on mine soon.

Re: Maritime Malahini

I think you are going to be happy you made your construction frame higher. Mine was only a couple inches off the floor, which made it difficult to do things to the sheer area.Sheer and chine look great.
