Re: MI Malahini questions

Should work out when you put the bottom planking on. If its stiff enough it wont lay down with the planking in place I would just fair it before installing the bottom planking.

Re: Mercury outboard coils???

Thanks Bill, The marineengine site had a detailed enough parts list which actually included canadian serial numbers, unlike all the other sites I had visited. It shows the canadian motors coils are indeed a different part number and according to them cannot cross reference with the newer (less expen...

Mercury outboard coils???

Wondering if anyone can help me confirm some part numbers for replacement coils of my vintage mercury. I have a 1975-ish Mercury 402, 40hp. Serial number 7038781 = (Canadian). I show the coil as a 339-5288 part number. Those are quite expensive for new ones. I have to believe there is a superseded p...

Re: Anyone built the Olympian?

There does not seem to be any evidence online that anyone has built one. Looks like a great boat for that task.

Re: Michael's ZIP

I think either steering is going to be fine Mike. I dont think you can get too sensitive. I do wish mine was a little more sensitive.

By the way your Utility article is in the yearly print edition of Small Boats Monthly on newstands now.

Re: best design for relaxed cruising

Zip will rise a little more than the Malahini but they both flatten nearly completely out on plane. They both will do about the same speed off plane before starting to rise.

Re: Aussie Gentry

Fantastic! Making the coverboards out of strips is a great idea. Its really much simpler than plank boards.
