I used a similar jig to cut my limbers. The router makes it much easier

Re: Malahini Chine bending

I have to reread my instructions, but I believe the waterline is at the top of the building form.

Re: Wire twisting pliers?

In orthodontics, I have to twist many wires. There are expensive specialty tools to do this, but I find a good locking pliers invaluable (actually I use hemostats which are just like small locking pliers.) I agree with Carl, these might be over-kill. I think a decent pair of vise grips could do the ...

Re: modified malahini

Thank you everyone for your replies. I think I will continue as before, but keep my eye open for a 25" shaft e-tec. I wouldn't make any changes until after I flip the hull, so it gives me some time to mull everything over.

Craig:

I think the placement looks. I agree having the steering in-line with the seat is important. When I sit in my wife's car, the steering is slightly to the right of where I am comfortable sitting. It is a little awkward.

Re: modified malahini

I'm not necessarily concerned about bolt holes being below waterline, but really how low it looks like the engine is in the water. I said I don't know much about motors, maybe it isn't a problem at all. unnamed (3).jpg The waterline is at the bottom of the tape. Is that too much engine to have in wa...

Re: modified malahini

Thanks for your input Carl: I've checked the measurements multiple times. When I made the changes to the malahini design I thought a 20" shaft would work. Not knowing anything about outboards, or thinking where the waterline would be on the transom. That was a big assumption on my part. Now tha...

Re: modified malahini

Next question. I bought a 20" shaft 90hp etec to use. Now that I have painted, I see that the lower mounting holes for the engine will be below the water line (bottom of tape on painted area) unnamed (2).jpg . If I change to a 25" shaft, the holes will be at the bottom of the tape on the s...

Re: modified malahini

I've been working a lot on the boat this week. Got the lift stakes encapsulated and sanded. Yesterday I put on three coats of System Three SIlverTip Yacht Primer. I used a 6" foam roller and a 2" Zibra brush I found at box Store. It has very fine smooth bristles. I think it did a very nice...
