Re: dry weight for a Malahini

So, now comes the end of the season and time to pull the boats out.
Sad day.
I pulled my trailer down and got it weighed. 460lbs. This week I’ll pull the boat down and weigh it.

Re: dry weight for a Malahini

I was guessing around 900. Maybe I'll remember to have it weighed when I pull it in a couple weeks.

Re: Stiletto from MD

I laid the cloth down first, then I tried the pour it on and squeegee it in, method and worked it back and fourth until I could see all the wood was wet underneath. The sides, I laid the cloth, then rolled it out. Results were the sa...

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

So I was up at torch lake this week. The young owner of the cabin had this boat stored in his garage. His grandfather ordered it new from Chris craft in 1943, but because of the war, he couldn’t get it until 1945. At which time the used a 6 cyl, dual plug, gas engine, out of a Higgins landing craft....

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.
