Re: modified malahini

Look at the can. It says, "Recoat: Apply additional coats of WR-LPU when the previous coat is dry to the touch (45-60minutes at 77F and 50% relative humidity)." It will take longer with more humidity but not 4 hours.

Re: Michael's ZIP

Your plan with the transom is going to ensure the transom/batten joints are really solid.

Re: modified malahini

I've used a cheap foam brush and a 2.5" Purdy XL. I think the Purdy does a much better job with tipping. Plus, if you have any areas you can't roll it is far superior to the cheap foam brushes. I have an area between the waterline and the spray rails that really couldn't be rolled. So I brushed...

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Thanks, fellas! Well, it turns out that I actually had a 15 pitch prop on the boat. I thought it was a 17 so I had the dealer order a 19. Anyways, I'm going to try it out. Easily turning 6000 rpm with the 15. If the rule of thumb is 200 rpm per inch of pitch that should put me at 5200 or maybe a bit...

Re: G-12 "Friday Lunch Run To Chattanooga"

Tom, I think it's pretty much up to the captains the day of. If you don't get aboard a Malahini for the lunch run I'm sure you can go out in one at some point in the weekend.

Re: Transporting lumber

I stacked the lumber in the center of the bed so that it would be tall enough to catch the lower tie downs in the bed. Strapping it front and back kept it from tipping back. I was hauling 14' or so boards in a 6.5' bed with the tailgate down which makes it about 8'. Wrapping the rear strap around th...

Re: SEA KNIGHT

Craig, here is a link for a great place to buy the actual wire: http://www.bestboatwire.com/ It's cheap enough that you can get lots of different colors. It would really be a nightmare for everything to be red and black, although I did buy a 100' roll of black and did all my negative in that. The po...

Re: Squirt Sheer Issue

My sheer laminations don't have any fasteners. I just used a "boatload" of clamps.

Re: Rampage Update 2017

I made all my interior removable too. If I ever want to I can strip it all down to work on the inside of the hull if need be. Your boat looks awesome! I love how you did the seats and all the folding etc.

I just let it hang out the back. If I'm going a ways I put a flag on it.

Most tools that folks commonly use for fairing will go right through those SB nails.

Re: New member from Ontario, Canada

I have about 15k in my Geronimo with all new components. You could save some by going with a used outboard depending. Donor boats can be a good option but you gotta get lucky with the right one. I never found one that seemed like it would be worth it. Out of the three outboard designs you mentioned,...
