Re: Hello from Adelaide, Australia!

Re: 90 HP Suzuki for Malahini

I have a 60HP 4 stroke on my Malahini, and have skied behind it (200lb, out-of-shape 44 yr old guy!). If you want to do some serious skiing then you probably will want to have the extra power, especially if you plan to do any slalom skiing. The 90 sounds like a good choice! Structurally, it looks li...

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Looks really beautiful. I used "3m perfect it" system for my final buffing/polishing. Don't know if it would be compatible with your finish, but worked well on my automotive finish! Again really nice work on your boat.

Re: Malahini from MD

I was quoted $1000.00 for a survey when I was looking into insurance options. The guy said it was not common to do surveys on small boats like ours and it takes a while to do one properly. He said a survey is more typically done for a pre sale on larger more valuable vessels. I would keep looking......

Re: modified malahini

Do you have room on your property for a shop or even a pole barn? You might be surprised how affordable that option might be and you could used it for other projects/storage after the boat build. I don't regret building my shop at all; been enjoying it for many years now! My shop is 24'x30' which wa...
