Re: The Fletchers Malahini

It’s coming along nicely. In Michigan, I had to have all of my receipts with me to get a title.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Looking great, Carl. Amazing how fast the space goes away when you start putting things In it. I have a flame stool too. Lol

Re: Malahini from MD

I was thinking of doing the same thing with mine. How much trouble did you have drilling them straight through?

Re: Console Skiff build

You’ve probably entertained this thought, but could you build the sea knight hull then build an open cockpit with a center console?
Just a thought.

Re: Malahini from MD

I went to the boat show last weekend. They always have a section of antique boats and this 1960 Riva was there and I thought of you.

Re: Malahini from MD

I have both a mirror and a compass. Rarely use either of them, but they’re fun to have (my wife loves to take pictures through the mirror). I haven’t pulled anyone skiing or tubing yet. That’s where you will use the mirror most. A compass is good if your going to be navigating large buddies if water...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

I agree with getting her done enough to launch her. The details will come in time. Life is not a given, play while you can. I launched mine last year and had a blast. Now I am working on all the details I didn’t get done then. I also learned some things that needed to be changed. She’s looking great!

Re: Malahini from MD

Facebook marketplace has engines a lot. But you never know what you are getting. There is a place in Florida that sells new ones that I saw on eBay a lot, but you still have to buy the prop, cables, and controller, and have it shipped. I bought mine at a local marina. I had the engine mounting holes...

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...
