Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Looks nice. I had the same thoughts when I was doing my electrical. In the end, I just swapped out all my bulbs with LEDs and they come on with the key switch. I have the other interior lights and nav lights on a three position pull switch. Don't really notice the gage lights during the day.

Re: The Fletchers Malahini

Coming right along! Looks like you might be going for a fold down back seat. I'm really glad I added that feature as well as the hatches. There is a bunch of storage in the back of the Malahini. The fold down backrest gives you quick access to the big area under the motor well. That's where we keep ...

Re: How much power is enough on a bullet?

Seth, I have no experience with the bullet, but Glen L has a chart that does a pretty good job of predicting speed based on power/weight ratio. https://www.glen-l.com/how-fast/ Based on 800lbs gross weight and a 30 hp motor you will probably hit your 30mph target. Best of luck with your build. Biss

Re: The Fletchers Malahini

I haven't had any issues with my fuel line so far, but Ive only run maybe 25 gal thru it! I used Sierra Shields Silverado 4000 Outboard Fuel Line. I didn't put anything in line from the tank to the motor. I probably should have, but there is already a filter on the motor so i didn't. I haven't had a...

Re: Fisherman

Been awhile since I checked in on this one. It is really comming along. Your planking looks really good. On my boat I have a painted hull so I used fairing compound (Totalfair) all over it! That stuff works great. Keep posting pics, we all like to see the progress!

Re: Malahini from MD

Your boat is looking great! I too like the look of the raised front edge. Will you be placing any cleats up front. If so you may need to allow enough room to mount them on the raised portion. If you don't, seems like the lines would chafe the raised edge. Just a thought. Oh, making that little coami...

Re: The Fletchers Malahini

Looks like the same controls I'm using. Seems to work fine and it connected right to the mercury harness. I purachased the harness from ebay as well (used). Ill try to hunt down the part number for the harness and ignition switch that i used.

Re: The Fletchers Malahini

Looking really good. The dash is great, with a real classic look. I think you will really like the 60hp merc. I have absolutely no complaints with mine, and it is a really good match for the Malahini. It starts right up everytime and only sips gas! Super quiet too. Are you installing the motor yours...
