Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Nice job on the jig and a great idea. It’s cool seeing the roof come together.
It would be nice if you could build things in the cabin that could be moved or removed as your needs change. But I know that’s not always feasible.
Very impressive so far. 😀

Re: Tunnel on Dory

Seems like you might get a lot of cavitation. Have you thought about using a jet drive from a jet ski?

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

So, I’m also working on my rub rails. I’m practicing on some smaller parts to work out the bugs. It’s still a lot of work to make them.

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

You would think after all thus time I would get better a epoxy. My starboard side turned out pretty good, but my port side keeps rippling. Not fish eyes, just ripples. Goes on smooth then after a while ...... It happened all three coats. Sanded lit back smooth each time, but goes back to a ripple. I...

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Like Matt said, the belt sander with coarse grit is a god send for many parts of your build. I have a hand held power planer that I used on my keel and a few other places.

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

I’ve travelled through 46 of these great states and live in 6, Mesquite Texas (4years) being my favorite behind Michigan, but I was born and raised here, so I kept coming back.
The motorcycle season (like the boat season) there was the best.

Re: modified malahini

Cleaning stainless polish: well, I use any lacquer thinner, rubbing alcohol, mothers mag polish, and of course, elbow grease, and old T-shirts, whatever is the handiest at the time. There are different wheels for different aggressiveness. The more threads (see them on the side) the more aggressive t...

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

Lol. I don’t fish when it’s nice out. I said I’d get a license when I retired. Now that I am, I haven’t had time. 😂

This is the part of living on a lake in Michigan I don’t enjoy, but I’m getting a lot accomplished in the garage.

Re: modified malahini

I agree with your reasoning behind using the foam and used it too. I epoxied 2” purple foam on the under side of my flooring before I installed it. I haven’t sunk yet! Lol Definitely make your electronics easily accessible. Mine is up under the top deck on the starboard side just forward the dash. C...

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

Thanks Biss. I’m excited to find out how well the tabs work. I think your right about the CG. The 69 Merc I originally had, pulled a great hole shot with very little bow rise, where my new Merc (50 lbs heavier) has a lot of bow rise, porpoises, and struggles to get on plane with 4 people. Unfortunat...

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

I’m no pro, I’ve only built one Malahini, but here’s my take. I used Phillips bits most of my build. I think they are more forgiving if your not straight on. I also used steel screws where I may need to fit and refit, then finish up with Silicon Bronze. You choose how much time you spend on cosmetic...
