Re: G-15 Alternative Location

I'm okay with the move. However, if the event changes to the end of September I have a potential conflict with dates. We attend a travel trailer rally that is always the last weekend in September. I may have to alternate or flip a coin.

Re: G14 pics

Thanks for the pics and update on the Gathering. Sorry we missed it. It turned out that we did not make it back from Seattle until yesterday (9/19), so we would not have made the event. Covid was not the issue, just scheduling.

Re: G-14 Who's Going and Where

I am sad to report that we have canceled our reservation and will not attend G14. Our cancellation is less about Covid and more about family and scheduling. We are currently in Seattle awaiting the birth of our sixth grandchild. The baby is due mid to late August, but who knows. Our kids, due to Cov...

Re: Malahini from MD

What size bimini did you get? Also, do you have a picture of it up? We boat in Missouri and it has been in the 90's all week. The sun turns the dark wood into a hot pad. I am thinking a bimini would help but want one that is the right proportion for the Malahini. I also have a fitted cover which won...

Re: Travels and Adventures of "Curt's Dream" a True Grit design-The Great Loop

Curt, Thanks for your travelogue of Florida and Key West. We scheduled a trip to Florida in March in our travel trailer and planned to see some Spring training baseball, experience the Miami Open tennis tournament, and visit 3 National Parks, including Dry Tortugas. However, the Corona virus killed ...

Re: Malahini from MD

If you keep trolling Craigslist, you should be able to find a used Yamaha 70. They do show up on occasion. I was watching for 6 months before I found one about 150 miles away. I bought the service/set-up manual on eBay and set it up myself. As it was used, I was less concerned about the warranty. It...

Re: Food

Bill,
I have a portable propane grill.
I will cook Brats for Saturday lunch and bring buns and condiments. I'll cook the big package of Johnsonville brats from Sams.

Are we planning to eat on the patio? Does it have electricity for a warming tray?

Bill,
Katie and I plan to bring some food.
Not sure what, though. Let us know where we need something and we will fill in.

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

What a nice looking boat. It is amazing how fast you accomplished such a great build.
I really like the look, although I am a prejudiced Malahini builder myself.

Re: Maritime Malahini

Be sure to check the plane from the chine to sheer at the bow. Many Malahini builders, including me, did not have enough twist in the chine resulting in the plane lining up inside the sheer. This prevents having a good chine surface to attach the plywood at the bow. You can check this with a straigh...

Re: Count Down

Bill, Neel, et al; We just booked floating cabin #8. Looking forward to seeing you all there, having spaghetti on Thursday night, and having a few beers. We will be taking our Malahini on the river run and have room for two ( or three if needed). I spoke with Hanna and she said there are still 5 one...

Re: Enjoying our Malahini

Looks great. Nice job. I believe that is a Washington registration. Where do you keep and run your boat. Our kids live in the Seattle area.

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

Looking good. I think 18 gal. is a good size. I have 14 and wish I had a bit more. The engine will look great and perform well. I had a '73 650 Merc at first. It started and ran well. However, the Captain didn't like the noise and smell of a two stroke so we went to a Yamaha 4-stroke. Heavier, but v...
