Re: Biss's Malahini Build

Thanks Billy, I wasn't really sure what to do on the cutwater. I might make a second diamond shaped piece that will fit over the deck/ rub rail ends. Or might just make a v shaped termination piece out of rubrail. Not sure how it is typically done...anybody have suggestions?

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

So I've spent the week doing several different things. I put a coat of paint on my trailer. Looks like it is going to need a second coat. I got a wiring harness installed and most of the remaining electrical complete. Also installed the steering and controls. Had to fabricate a 2" 'riser' for the co...

Looks like the Interlux laid down nicely. Going to be a really sharp boat!

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

Yep, I remember reading that too. Unfortunately at the rear section the tumblehome is defined by the transom and the first frame shapes. There is no other longitudinals between the shear and chine, so I'm not sure how you would get the nice big curve without touching the first frame. On a completely...

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

Thanks guys, So the clear is a fairly cheap product I ordered online (Speepokote SMR-1150). It is a two part Acrylic Urethane. I can't compare it to more expensive 2K clears, b/c this is the first time using this type of clear. I shot it with a "high quality" Harbor Freight HVLP gun that I had bough...

Re: modified malahini

Nice install. I did add some neoprene on the mounting brackets as well. Probably only 3/8" though. It will have to do for now! Don't think the hook brackets are rigid enough to impede the tanks lateral expansion much anyway.

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Your build is looking good! Really nice work on shaping the wood! Walnut will be beautiful when all finished out!

Re: modified malahini

Tank fitment is looking good. So what did you fab the tank hold downs with. I ended up using the ones from moeller. Attached is a photo. Before fastening down, I did encapsulate the platform and installed a pad under the tank. Yours looks like it is going to be more secure than the factory solution!...

Re: Malahini from MD

Looking great! Resawing wood is not fun. When I got my Mahogany I had the mill cut and plane my deck planks to size! It did cost alittle more, but I don't think I could have done it efficiently with the tools I have. Quick question, were you able to cut the deck ply out of two sheets? I'm still tryi...

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

Guys I appreciate the comments on the swim platforms. Been busy clear coating the inside and painting the outside. Ended up using automotive paints, both color and clear. Been a long time since I sprayed auto paint. All the chemistries are different! Much better stuff now too. Everything is two comp...
