Re: Outrage progress

I've never taken a serious look at the outrage before but that think will be seriously fast with a 115 on it. What were you planning on for power?

Re: Hello to Everyone from Phoenix

There are ways to work with epoxy in the heat. A search of the forum should give you some ideas.

Re: modified malahini

I like a pump that has an internal float like the one Matt showed. The float is inside the strainer so it won't get hung up on some debris in the bilge. I used a blob of 3m 4200 on the inside of the hull and pushed the pump strainer into it. Once that cures you can snap the pump into the strainer. T...

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

Neel, glad you are continuing the Palm Beach. A lot more fun than moving to Florida and making canes. That is going to be one special boat.

Carlm, sadly there were no Gentry's at the G this year.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

The windows opening like that will be really cool. And hopefully let in a lot of cool air.

Re: Malahini Progress on Long Island, NY

Awesome boat. It's always interesting to see everyone's unique takes on the Malahini. No two are exactly the same.

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Ha! I wish I had a picture of it on plane. That 90 Yamaha two stroke was a perfect fit for your Malahini, Matt. There should definitely be more drag racing at the Gathering.

Re: Bullet ski boat

I doubt that a first time builder would be able to pull it off in 30 days. It's easy to get lost in fairing hell for a while.

Re: Hello to Everyone from Phoenix

As far as I can tell the Geronimo and Sea Knight are the exact same hull apart from the cabin. I never compared the beams but I don't know why they'd be different.

Re: Garage floor paint recommendations

There's nothing that you are just going to be able to slap on with only minimal prep that's really going to last. Prep is the key to any coating system.

Re: Malahini from MD

Looking great. By my count there are four or five new Malahinis that could make it to the Gathering next year if everyone gets to work.

Re: Malahini performance

You were asking me if I had water in my bilge at the gathering. I checked later and there wasn't any. Good thing you caught it early.

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Mike,

I'm glad this thread was inspirational to you. The Geronimo is a great hull. It is a great boat over all and there is a lot you can do with it. More people should build Geronimos. Let me know if you have any questions.
