Re: Malahini from MD

Too bad regarding the tariff stuff. I also got a quote for a certified preowned motor from www.captkirks.com. I spoke with a sales guy by the name of Cain Hubbard (Ph: 281.367.5630). They quoted me $5,679 + shipping. Can't remember if it was a CT version or not. Might give these guys a call to see i...

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

The side panels are a nice touch. Hope the trim tabs fix your issues with porpoising. Seems like the Malahini really needs some weight farther forward to improve the CG. A big ice chest full of adult beverages under the bow may be the only solution!!

Re: Malahini from MD

I had similar delays due to tariff concerns. Seems like it only took a couple weeks before it was worked out and then it shipped. Hope your transaction goes as well as mine did.

Re: Malahini from MD

Your boat is really comming together! So, I purchased my outboard slightly used from smalloutboards.com . It was a big leap of faith for me to send them a huge chunk of money for a motor sight unseen! That said I have only good things to say about the transaction and the company. Motor arrived in or...

Re: Fisherman

I didn't use fiberglas. I just used thickened epoxy and screws to attach. I think most consider the skeg and spray rails sacrificial. I guess it would be alittle easier to replace if there was no figerglas to deal with. Probably be a pain either way!

Re: Malahini from MD

You nailed it with the second version of the windshield frame! Finishes and metalwork are looking great too! Can't wait to see how it all turns out.

Re: The Fletchers Malahini

Nice work on the interior finish out! Floorboards with the medallion in the middle is a nice touch!
